At the minimum she would have to have Advance Parole (AP) approved and in hand before departing the country. However, realize that even with AP she is not guaranteed to be allowed back into the country. Approval times for AP vary but is usually estimated to be about 3 months from the date requested.

The AP can be done in conjunction with or after the Adjustment of Status (AOS) request. The Employment Authorization Document {EAD} can also be requested at the time of or after the AOS request. There is no cost for filing for the AP and EAD if done at the time of or after the AOS request, otherwise there is a fee for the AP filing.

Filed: AOS (apr) Country: Denmark
Timeline

AOS (and AP, form -131) needs to be filed and she needs to have AP in hand before leaving the US. It'll take about 2-3 months from submitting papers until AP in hand.

In order to submit AP(and AOS) you'll need to have everything ready. If she has all vaccinations and medical is still valid, all you need would be the copy of marriage certificate and other supporting documents. When you have those, you can basically submit AOS.

If you marry in March 2013 and submit AOS, I131 and I765 within a month, she'll most likely have EAD/AP combo card in hand by june/july/august - well before christmas. BUt it's fine to submit it and have extra time in case an RFE is generated.


K1 process, October 2010 > POE, July 2011

I-129F approved in 180 days from NOA1 date. (195 days from filing to NOA2 in hand)

Interview took 224 days from I-129F NOA1 date. (241 days from filing petition until visa in hand)

From filing I-129F petition until POE: 285 days

AOS process, December 2011 > July 2012

EAD/AP Approval took 51 days from NOA1 date to email update. (77 days from filing until EAD/AP in hand)

AOS Approval took 206 days from NOA1 date to email update. (231 days from filing until greencard in hand)

From filing I-129F petition until greencard in hand: 655 days

File for the GC, AP, and EAD ASAP after the marriage. She can travel on the AP card or the GC. One would hope 9 months would be enough to receive the GC, but there are some people waiting for almost a year. The AP should arrive in about 3 months and she can travel on that.

Good luck,

Dave

No. Because without pending AOS, she'll be considered departuring and definitely can't come back because she won't be entering with a valid visa nor AP or any AOS pending for that matter. Waste of money to even file AP before AOS.

After reading a few forums I noticed that after aos the green card comes next. Shouldn't that be enought for her to go back and forth as she pleases as long as she has the Greene card? Or even with a green card she will need to fill out forms to go on vacation?

You cannot file for AP without filing for AOS.

To the OP> Follow the guide here on VJ for filing for AOS after you are married: http://www.visajourney.com/content/k1k3aos

Work authorization(EAD) and advance parole(AP) are filed for at the same time as you file the I-485 to get the green card. The form fees for the EAD and AP are waived when filing with a pending I-485. It will typically come in an EAD/AP combo card that is good for employment and re-entry to the US when traveling. It can also be used to get a state drivers license or ID. They take 2-3 months to receive after filing your AOS paperwork and are used while waiting for the green card approval. Once the green card is approved, they are no longer valid or needed. Follow the guide here on VJ for filing AOS.

Before you asked all these questions, did you read the Guides? Did you search the forums? Did you comprehend what you read? VisaJourney will be of the most help to you if you search, read, and study on your own first, and then return to ask unanswered questions.
