Filling out the AP form

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Alright, I searched for over 30 minutes through the forums but it must be in the old ones that I recall reading this info.

I am applying for my AP with my AOS and EAD, and I will be going back to Canada to visit family and friends.

In part 3 of the I131 it asks "Date of Intended Departure" and "Expected Length of Trip"

Is it ok to put "unknown" in these spaces? Is there more appropriate word? "Not yet planned"??

Also, I didn't see the part where I have to add an extra sheet to explain why I am leaving the country. Perhaps it is in the instructions part, I will look that over again.

So, if anyone could advise on how to fill out that Part 3 it would be appreciated. I just want to be able to go back to Canada to visit whenever that may be. I don't have any set dates yet.

Thanks!!

Further to what I just said, I have reviewed the instructions, which are up to date and from th USCIS site, and I'm assuming that a document showing my current status would be the K1 visa in my passport? And the explanation asked for to show circumstances that warrant the issuance is the paper I am supposed to write?

Any tips on what to write? Can I just say I need to be able to visit family while my AOS is taking place? Is that sufficient?

So, just a copy of my Visa? What about the I94 that's in my passport? And the letter of explanation.

Anything else?

Filed: AOS (apr) Country: Australia
Timeline

For part 3, I estimated a date on which I'd like to travel, and the length of the trip. I imagine if you put 'unknown' it probably wouldn't cause a problem. You can add to this in answering part 7, which is for people applying for advance parole'. The instructions on the form say to include a sheet of paper stating how you qualify for advance parole. I attached a letter listing that I'd entered the US on a K1 visa, and am applying for advance parole in connection with my AOS application. Under that I wrote that I require a multiple entry advance parole document so that I may visit my family in Australia.

As for supporting documentation, I included a photocopy of the biographic page of my passport, a copy (front and back) of my I-94, copy of my K1 visa (it's on the same page as my I-94 so that made it easier), and a copy of my marriage certificate just to show the surname change.

Hope that helps. :)
