Advance Parole Traveling Back Home while on AOS US Citizen Spouse

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi,

So I have submitted my AOS (I-485, I-131, etc.) about a week ago and I have received the Receipt Number from USCIS.

I am planning to go back to my country with my Advance Parole (hopefully I will receive within next 3 months) for about 2 to 3 months upcoming Nov, Dec 2019 and Jan 2020 because of an Exam for my job requirement. 

Would this delay my AOS process? and would this effect me from coming back to the U.S.?

I am asking this because I am planning to buy the plane ticket in advance.

 

Thank you. I appreciate your answer.

3 months is optimistic for EAD and AP. 

You can leave and it wont delay your AOS just track your mail because you'll need to come back for your interview.

Quick word of caution.

 

If you get your EAD/AP prior to your Green Card and you plan to stay in your home country for a 2 - 3 months like you stated, you run the risk of having to find a way back to the US for your Biometrics appointment and/or your AOS interview. Sometimes they can be as short as a 1 week notice. Missing your AOS interview can result in a denial due to abandonment. If possible, it is better to have the GC in your hands before you leave the US for that long.

 

Just something to consider.

You won't have received your EAD AP in three months check the processing times. Also if you leave for 2-3 months you might be issued an RFE or called for an interview which might have severe implications to your application.

AP is taking between 4 and 6 months and in some cases much longer. If you have your PD already, assume a minimum of 200 days from PD to get your combo card, and make sure its physically in your hand before making any plans.

For the RFE Would they question about the reason why i went back? And is this questioning done in the airport when i get back. I heard people had to stay at the airport custom for a long time.

Thanks for all the advise and comments.

 

Then would going back in next January 2020 for like 3 weeks will be okay? After receiving all the things i need, of course. Because i just need to take this exam and come back. 

That should be okay, travelling up to a month-6weeks is okay in my opinion but longer than that you never know what can happen in the mean time here in the US while away..

December/January is definitely safer because it is 9 months away so assuming you have no RFE and you receive your EAD/AP according to the actual processing times you will be good.
