I-512L expiring Oct 2022 can be cancelled if I renew?

Hi Everyone,


I may be worrying about something that I should not.

I plan to travel and temporarily leave the US using my I-512L (Advance Parole standalone document) next week for 1.5 weeks that expires in October 2022. I sent a "renewal" I-131 new application 2 weeks ago. USCIS will give me a new receipt # for this new application to renew my I-131 since it is expiring soon.

Question: Will having a new I-131 application to renew the expiring I-512L document that I have cancel the current original valid I-512L that I have in my possession? I am afraid that once I leave the US and try to re-enter using my original I-512L, USCIS may cancel the current I-512L that has an Oct 2022 expiry AFTER receiving my new I-131 application. CBP usually sees the most recent "live" updates in their system.

Let me know if you have experience or knowledge on this. Thanks.

You travel only based on AP in your hand. Return before 10/22  and don’t lose your AP or you won’t be allowed back in.
The newly applied for AP will take a while and has no impact on the current one valid til 10/22. 
Worry not, have a great trip.

Even if your I-512 is canceled because USCIS sent a new one while you  were out, CBP will let you in.  

Your old I-512 is a valid for boarding as long as it isn’t a expired
