My fiancé is in school in his country, and will not be able to stay the entire time while the AOS is processing. My fiancé has about 8-9 months left of school before he’s done. He will be able to travel back and forth on school breaks a month or more at a time. I have few important questions:

1. How many Months at a time can you leave the U.S. with an approved Advance Parole?

2. How many Times can you travel in and out of the U.S. with an Advance Parole?

3. How long is this Advance Parole Document good for? Does it expire?

If any one can answer my questions or has some good advice regarding the Advance Parole procedure it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in Advance : )

These are all questions that we didn't want to deal with so we waited for Israel to be done with school. Good luck getting everything timed out the way you need it to be.

File I-131 (request for travel document) and required documentation when you file I-485 (adjustment of status). The advance parole preserves the adjustment of status application when he leaves, and allows him to seek reentry when he comes back. Otherwise, the adjustment of status application is deemed abandoned. If you file I-765, which is the request for employment authorization, at the same time, he will get a single card that serves as both advance parole and employment authorization. Both of these are free if they are filed with the adjustment of status application. Advance paroles issued during adjustment of status are typically multiple entry paroles, so they can be used multiple times.

I am not aware of any time or date limitations on advance parole. However, I would caution you that, the same as when you get a green card, the U.S. may consider his application for permanent residency abandoned if he is not residing in the U.S. Generally, you don't want to leave for more than 6 months at a time, and you should try to spend more time in the U.S. than out of it. In any case, you should try to collect proof that he is domiciled in the U.S., even if he is attending school abroad, so try add him to any leases, utility bills, bank accounts, etc., you may have, and keep documentation of the time that he spends here. If he has to attend school after the green card is issued, you should apply for a reentry permit, which preserves legal residency if you are abroad for more than six months. Just be really careful that he doesn't abandon his residency in the U.S., or you will have to start over with a CR-1.

AP i s only valid for 1 year or until the green card is approved. Then it is no longer valid.

I curious about your statement regarding the preservation of the AOS. You stated that “The advance parole preserves the adjustment of status application when he leaves, and allows him to seek reentry when he comes back”.

What exactly do you mean by Preserve? Does this mean that they halt /stop the Adjustment of Status process until he return? I’m a little confused. :unsure:

They will cancel an adjustment of status application if you leave the country without advance parole. This is what I mean when I say the adjustment application is "preserved" by the advance parole. Advance parole doesn't halt the adjustment application, but it keeps it from being cancelled. Do not leave the country until you have advance parole or a green card.

Can you update this situation, please? We are in a similar situation.

Right now we are waiting on the AP and his classes start next week. He is planning to skip the first week-giving us 2 weeks, but we are still biting our nails. As it stands now, without the AP, we are at the crossroads of giving up the visa completely and starting over or giving up his education that only lacks a single class to complete. Sigh. Very heavy sigh. (We did apply for the AP in May--when we got out marriage certificate from the city--delayed, of course. They take their sweet time, too.)
