Hello. My wife had to travel outside the US and using her advance parole card because of illness in the family. How long is she allowed to stay outside of the US? 

There is no set time .. she needs to be able to demonstrate on her return that her absence was temporary and that remains domiciled in the US..  under 6 months absence is usually no issue, 6-12 months may result in questions but is ok, over 12 months may result in the assumption that she has abandoned her Adjustment status and result in referral to immigration court ..

I've heard of stories of people with advance parole cards still being denied entry. I'm guessing there are other circumstances that lead to being denied. 

Care to share? I have only seen less than a handful of cases (other than still-rare cases where AP became invalid due to the I-485 being denied while abroad), and they were due to something else significant in their case (smuggling one time, a new criminal activity case another, etc.)

I don't have any details. The agency we are using for AOS mentioned it to me when I asked for their input. They said they don't recommend using AP to leave the US at all.

Then time to find a different agency.   Hundreds of people do it every day 


YMMV

I've posted about it a lot. Lawyers and others conflate denial on advance parole with denial for other reasons. It's really rare. I myself was a long overstay and used advance parole 7x in 9 months, and had no issue each time. I did a lot of research and reading of anecdotal stories and was confident. You should be too.
