  1. Hello All, Has anyone traveled outside of the united states with an approved Advance Parole (AP I-131) while the Adjustment of Status (AOS) documentation is still pending? If so, did you have any issues or concerns at the point of entry when returning to the United States?
  2. Hi Guys, I'm a little confused after reading contradicting answers online. My situation in short- I filed for AOS/EAD/AP based on a K1 visa on Feb 2018 shortly after I got married. I received my EAD/AP combo card on July 2018 and it is valid until July 2019 (1 year).  Meanwhile, since I reside in NYC, the AOS(I-485) takes much much longer than expected. I'm waiting for them to schedule an interview since September 2018 ("Case is Ready to Be Scheduled for An Interview"). Last month I filed for an EAD renewal and received a 797C notice therefore automatically extending my EAD card by 180 days. My main question is regarding my advance parole (I-131)- 1. Is it true that it is valid for 2 years and not 1 year? (my current combo card specifically mentions that the card itself expires on July 2019 without distinguishing between my EAD and AP) 2. If it does expire on July 2019, can I file for a renewal in similar way to my EAD renewal? (I read somewhere that AP cannot be extended) 3. I traveled abroad in December 2018 and returned on Jan 3rd 2019. Upon return the border patrol officer stamped my foreign passport, and wrote under "Paroled" the date of Jan 2nd 2020 (which is 1 year ahead). So my question here is what does this mean? Is my AP valid until July 2019 or Jan 2020? I'm sorry for my very long question Thanks, Dave
  3. Hello friends, I will probably travel to Turkey in September to do a small "cosmetic" procedure. I don't have my GC yet, just the EAD/AP combo card. Is it going to be a problem returning to the US? Also, are there any other requirements other than the AP and the Turkey visa? Thanks in advance,
  4. Hi all, I'm sure this has been asked before but I can't find an answer. Im filling out AP I-131 to send off with my AOS application from a K1 visa. The instructions seem weird to me and don't explain everything and this part in particular is confusing me... 'On a separate sheet of paper, explain how you qualify for an Advance Parole Document, and what circumstances warrant issuance of advance parole. Include copies of any documents you wish considered. (See instructions.)' When I look through the instructions it says I am eligible to apply if You have a pending application to adjust status, Form I-485, and you seek to travel abroad temporarily for “urgent humanitarian reasons” or in furtherance of a “significant public benefit,” which may include a personal or family emergency or bona fide business reasons. Well of course I just want to go back and see my family and this hardly counts as urgent humanitarian or emergency. So how am I still eligible to apply for AP? What should I write to explain why I qualify? I see everyone else applying with no issue. Thanks, this is stressing me out!
  5. My wife's EAD AP combo card is about expire in March--- We are applying for the 180 extension for the EAD with a new 1-765 form, Copies of current EAD Card, i-797 copy, and i-485 NOA copy and 2 new photos's. Question is,... what else would I need to included for the AP renewal? Or is that sufficient? I assume using the photo's for the EAD application are sufficient?
  6. My i-131 is extremely overdue; it has been pending for 6 months. I went to the local senator's office yesterday and the immigration counsellor told me she thought, as a Canadian in the US, I'm still able to cross that border at will. However, when I entered the US, the border officer told me I was not allowed to leave until my i-131 was completed. Do any Canadians have any experience with this? I've also got an infopass appointment for next week. I was told that I might be able to get a temporary advanced parole while waiting for my i-131 to be approved because it is all so overdue. Does anyone know anything about this? Thanks for your help!
  7. My friend came to the US on X parcis visa type. His I-94 says Purpose: Significant Public Benefit Parole. His I-94 expired in 9/2017. He also go married to US a month ago. Can he AOS based on his visa type or marriage? He was given work authorization.
  8. Hoping anyone can help answer a question, the internet has been very unhelpful I'm in the US on a K1 visa. I entered in March, was married in June and submitted all my paperwork right after. I had my biometrics test in August and since then, radio silence. It's been almost 5 months since my applications for Advanced Parole and Employment Authorization have been received, but I haven't heard anything. I'm in Seattle coming from Canada. This seems like a very above average wait time. I've checked my status with USCIS, but it hasn't been updated since my application was received in June. Is there any other way to check on things? How do I know if anything has gone wrong? Is this an above average wait time? Any help/words of wisdom would be greatly appreciated!
