    What you are doing makes absolutely zero sense. None.
    You don't want to live in the U.S. and really just want to use the visa as a way for her to travel here, correct? Even if she gets her AP and whatnot you still have to file for permanent residency. Which, common sense will tell us, means that she is going to reside in the U.S. permanently. She can't live in China and make short trips here while keeping her residency status, as being a PR means that you spend MORE time in the U.S than out of it. Same deal with the spousal visa. When that's granted she will be a PR, but she wont be able to keep it if she isn't meeting the residency requirement. Which, by the way, she wont be if you intend to only visit the U.S for a month every year or two. Advance Parole is contingent upon you applying for her PR card anyway, so once that would be granted her AP wont be valid because she wouldn't need it anymore. And then once she stops meeting the residency requirements the same will happen with her PR.
    Honestly, it's like you didn't even halfway read the requirements for these visas and just decided to throw a bunch of money away.

    Read this, and let it soak in. Getting her a PR card is not going to be beneficial to you. Green cards are not for tourists. This is from the USCIS website.
    Maintaining Permanent Residence
    You may lose your permanent resident status (green card) if you commit an act that makes you removable from the United States under the law, as described in Section 237 or 212 of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) (see the “INA” link to the right). If you commit such an act, you may be brought before an immigration court to determine your right to remain a permanent resident.
    Abandoning Permanent Resident Status
    You may be found to have abandoned your permanent resident status if you:
    Move to another country intending to live there permanently Remain outside of the United States for more than 1 year without obtaining a reentry permit or returning resident visa. However, in determining whether your status has been abandoned, any length of absence from the United States may be considered, even if less than 1 year Remain outside of the United States for more than 2 years after issuance of a reentry permit without obtaining a returning resident visa. However, in determining whether your status has been abandoned any length of absence from the United States may be considered, even if less than 1 year Fail to file income tax returns while living outside of the United States for any period Declare yourself a “nonimmigrant” on your tax returns
    Since she lives in China, and intends to live there permanently with you, she does not need and would be abandoning her green card if she were to ever get one. Of course, you could get one and if they find out that you lied about intending to move to the US permanently in order to obtain that green card she could be banned. For life. You have to maintain a residence in the United States, and that's what you're not understanding. There is no way around this. Green card is NOT the answer for you.

    We got an RFE during AOS. The things they asked for were things that were not only included, but BRIGHTLY labeled, clipped together, and had a detailed table of contents for. This really makes me think that it is random, and that sometimes they just like to issue RFE's. When the file they are giving an RFE to has everything needed, they just request the same ####### anyway. It's extremely frustrating though. I was madder than a wet hen when my husband called and told me we had gotten an RFE!
    We've gotten 3 emails from USCIS today all saying the same thing-- card production ordered. I never get tired of reading it, though. <3

    It says that because the lockbox is a post office box. They can't deliver something with signature required to a mailbox. Someone will come and pick them up on Monday, so don't worry. It happens to everyone.

    TECHNICALLY, if upon arrival on American soil, you had NO intent to immigrate here on this particular trip, you could legally get married right now, and bypass the whole visa process. Just file for AOS.
    Again, this technicality is very important - if you had no immigrant intent upon POE, then it's a green light. Of course, that means you cannot actually leave the US until your AOS is approved.
