Recommended Posts

Hi guys!

I need help with filling out the application for AP. I'll be sending it together with with my AOS and EAD application and I'm a bit confused on what to put in Part 7:

"On a separate sheet of paper, explain how you qualify for an Advanced Parole Document and what circumstances warrant issuance of Advance Parole..."

Thank you for all your help!

Since u r applying with AOS, u dont have to describe anything, it will be self understood that your AOS application is the basis of ur I131.

Thanks for the replies. So, I just leave it blank?

Leave what blank? You still answer the questions in Part 7. You just don't attach anything.

what about the part where it asks for the purpose of travel and where and when? Do i leave them blank too? thanks so much!

If you are talking about Part 4 about countries and purpose, you are supposed to read the instructions which says for non-DACA APs skip from Part 3 item 3 to Part 7. If you are talking about Part 3 items 1 and 2 about the date of departure and length of trip, yes you have to answer those but you can just put something like "Unknown".

No explanation or reason is needed when filing the I-131 with a pending I-485 as an adjustment applicant.

An adjustment applicant does not fill out Part 4 stating a reason and purpose of their travels, and you do not need to supply the extra statement. At the bottom of page of 2 it states this : If you are applying for a non-DACA related Advance Parole Document, skip to Part 7

Leave date and length blank, then hand-write Unknown for those after printing out the form.
