Dear all,

Thank you for being so helpful to me in the past. I have another question that I need to ask. I have applied for an I-485 marriage based and then left my husband because of abuse. I filed for an I - 360 last year and have received my AP and my EAD since (and I have travelled out of the US twice with no issue). My I 485 is on hold because they are waiting for my I - 360 case. Yesterday I got news that my divorce has been finalized and I can use my maiden name again (I hyphenated my last name with this, big mistake). Now I want to change all my documents back to my original name but I don't know where to start. should I send a letter and proof to my I 360 case venue, or the I - 485? I am very eager to get this done as soon as possible.

Travel with AP- return to US on AP or L1 visa
I’m currently waiting for my GC interview (scheduled for November) but want to surprise my husband (USC) with a little vacation before this.
I still have a valid L1 visa but also a never used AP. My question: shall I return to the US on L1 visa or AP? Will this has any influence on my i485?

hello people,
I'm scared to visit my country on AP as I overstayed my visa and also worked illegally on my SSN. Will this be any problem?

Infopass emergency parole
I have my Infopass appointment in 2 days. My grandmother is seriously ill and I had planned to visit my family a couple of months ago. I have an approved I797b for h1b but my Visa stamping is expired. With the increased denial rate I don't want to risk anything. If I don't get approved for emergency parole and still leave US and get denied for Visa stamping does that mean I abandoned my green card?
Filled on 12 June 2019
Fingerprint review - 10 July 2019
No update since then.
Also during infopass interview, will I be given emergency parole only or can they approve I-131?

Extension of Academic Training

I have applied for Academic Training (I was a J-1 holder) when I was done with my Ph.D. program. I start ed working for a year. After that, I applied for J-waiver and was granted J-1Waiver based on no objection. Then, I have applied for green card based on Advance Parole. My Academic Training comes to the end. I need to extend my visa status to continue working, but I haven't receive my EAD card yet. So, If I request an extension from my J-1 visa sponsorship (university), Does it affect my ongoing Greencard Application and how?

Is there anybody who has idea about it, I would really appreciate.

Thank you

How long does the process for Advance Parole take?
Hi everyone,

I have an educational trip coming up in January, but I didn’t realize Advance Parole would take 120 days and my AP will show up at least a month after my planned trip.

Has it taken less time for any of you?

Thank you!!
