Hi all,

Any advice on how to obtain URGENT Travel document ? I was admitted via K1 Visa and am married to my sweetheart here ALREADY. We are planning to send the AOS package by this week. But there were some URGENT family matters, and I need to travel b4 the AP get approved.

How do I go about doing that?

Any advice will be appreciated

I'll caution you that it may be better to simply wait-it-out.

Without an approved AP or a GC, there is no other way to travel outside of the U.S. and be able to be re-admitted upon your return.

If you leave the US without either AP or the GC, you will have to re-apply for a spousal visa and start the process all over from the beginning.

I got emergency AP when my Mom was in the hospital and I was needed back in Canada to find her a Care Facility because I held Power of Attorney for my Mom. I got a letter from my Mom's doctor describing her condition and that it was necessary for me to return to Canada. I took the letter to the local USCIS office in Seattle and was approved that same day and received my AP documents. But, the Seattle office already had my I-131 application at their office (at the time I applied, I-131's were sent to the local offices, not the Chicago Lock Box as they are now).

So, in your case, I would make an InfoPass appointment at your local office and ask what they suggest you do in your situation.

Good luck.

Rozytc,

Send an I-131 application for advance parole along with your application for adjustment of status. When you get the Receipt Notice make the InfoPass appointment that raymaga suggests, and go armed with as much documentation of the urgent family matter as you can.

If the folks at your District of Sub office agree that the matter is sufficiently urgent they may issue an advance parole document to you.
