K-1/AP question

Hello,

My fiancee got her K-1 visa last week and arrived in the U.S. several days ago. Our wedding date is set for a couple weeks from now. When she bought her ticket, she booked a return flight for late September because her brother is getting married in October in South Korea. She will be in Korea for only several weeks. From reading this site today, it seems I will need to file a I-131 for advance parole. However, do I need to wait until I file her i-485 (after our wedding)? Also, is there any other re-entry option for such a short leave period? It seems as though even if I file for AP, there's a good chance it won't be approved in time for her to fly out.

Thanks in advance for your advice.

Yes, you must file I-131 with I-485. If you are getting married in a few weeks (end of July), it probably won't be approved by September. You could try for an expedite, but chances are slim. Good luck.

Bottom line. Don't even think about leaving before you get your AP document. Some people may say go ahead and mail the document after the fact but if for some reason it is denied, she is not coming back here anytime soon. Please be careful about this.

To add to the above, if you left before you had the approved AP, you would automatically abandon the AOS process and receive a denial. I have not seen anyone suggest this course of action.
