When he comes on the K-1 he is making a commitment to marry you and make a life together in the US. After you marry and file for AOS also file for AP (and EAD of course). When he receives his AP he can leave the US and be admitted back in provided his AOS was not cancelled.

What my spouse did (arriving on a K-1) was take a leave of absence from his job and after he received AP he returned home, quit his job and wrapped up his loose ends there. This him more time to make sure what he had done was the right decision and that he could adapt to life here.

As soon as you guys married and you file for AOS then no problem, once approved , he will be mail his G.C and no need of leaving unless you guys decide to travel . and regarding AP , this always occur with people from Arabic countries. but from UK. i think is ok.

Hello Vjer's

He will be able to stay in the U.S. The purpose of the fiancé(e) and spousal visas is the beneficiary is showing intent to immigrate into the U.S. He will not have to return to the UK.

Once you have submitted the adjustment of status paperwork and have received either the advanced parole (AP) document or the green card, he will be able to travel back to the UK and be able to re-enter the U.S. If he leaves before having either document, he will not be able to re-enter the U.S. You will then have to restart the process by petitioning him again using the spousal petition.

If he has a job that cannot be transferred to the U.S., then yes, he will need to quit. If he has a position where he can work remotely and the money is deposited into a UK bank, he can continue working stateside without having to wait for the adjustment of status to be complete. Otherwise, he will not be able to work in the U.S. until receipt of the Employment Authorization Document (EAD) or the green card. When you submit the adjustment of status paperwork, be sure to include the AP and EAD forms as well.

AP in this instance is referring to advanced parole, not the administrative processing/review. :thumbs:

Sorry I still confused...what does AP stands for ??

It means, he have to marry me within the 90 days and stay until he gets he's green card ?? Or can he go back to the UK, I said a month after we get marry ?? and come back later after reciving he's gc ??

Booboo Monkey, like others said... Once your fiance gets his k1 visa approved and he arrives in US he will have stamped in his passport a i-94 stamp with an expiration date (at the port of entry).

He will have to marry you within 90 days of his arrival. Once you married and as soon as possible try to gather all the forms and documents to apply for the AOS (adjustment of status) which will include the forms to get the EAD (employment authorization), the AP (Advance parole) and then GC (green card).

Usually when you apply for AOS, the petitioner will receive first the EAD and AP . The AP is the document that will allow him to travel abroad and return to US while the GC approval still pending. He can not get out of US without having the AP document or GC. Maybe he can visit UK for 1 month or so.It's not recommended to leave US before having applied for the AOS and preferrely having received the AP document otherwise USCIS will consider he abandoned the AOS case.

About your question, he can NOT go back to UK right after you both got married otherwise will not be allowed to re enter US. He needs to get the AP or GC in order to leave the country.

More info about what its required for AOS is in this link
