adavane parole
Hi You all,

After reading your experience, its my turn to share mine. I re entered the US tonight on Advance Parole after 25 days well spent with family in Africa. Friends, i got no issues whatsoever, everything went smoothly. At the 1st inspection, the officer took my passport and advance parole and asked me to wait for a second inspection since he was not the one to stamp my passport. At the second inspection, i waited about 15 minutes (since there was a lot of people waiting ) to hear my name. The officer handed me my passport and advance parole stamped and added "you are good to go". I was not asked any questions.
So bottom line, if you have been granted Advance Parole go ahead and use it. You will not regret it.

NBC August Filler (Marriage-Based)
Hello Family,

Merry Christmas to everyone!
I am currently employed full-time at company XYZ based on my CPT which is a work authorization you get while you're an international student. However, my CPT didn't get approved for next semester which starts from Jan 5th. I am so much depressed that I will loose my well paid full-time job of 4 years due to that. So, I would have to expedite my EAD for that. I am already waiting for my Combo Card since last 122 days!!

Can anyone please suggest what kind of documentation I need to submit in this scenario? Since I am already working there last 4 years, I am not sure Job Offer letter would work.

Please help. I hope everyone get their EAD approved very soon!

Advance Parole Mexico
Hi everyone,

My dad just went to Mexico with only AP and his combo card. Will he have any trouble coming back to the US? He has no criminal record and he went to visit a sick uncle. Can someone share their experience traveling to Mexico? I am very worried. Thank you

Pending I485 Adjustment of status and Travelling Internationally
I came to USA on F1 status. My I20 is expiring on 31st December 2019. However I am married to US citizen and applied for adjustment of status on March 2019. We have received an Interview date. Unfortunately we had to apply for reschedule due to necessary international travel.

Along with I485, I have applied and approved for I765 (Work Authorization) and I131 (Advance Parole). I left the county last week and coming back on February. My concern is:

1. Since my I20 expires on 31st Dec 2019, but I have my Advance Parole card with me, do I have to worry about my reentry?
2. I have one more semester to go. Is it a good idea to wave my F1 status through University website or should I wait until my green card get approved? Asking because I have only one class to take. To maintain F1 status, I have to take 9 credits as I have already applied for course reduction in fall 2019 semester. If I wave F1 status, I can take one class.

I would really appreciate any help regarding this issue.

Temporary passport
Anyone travel with EAD and temporary passport? I heard temporary passport won’t be accepted unless you have a visa. Is the EAD the equivalent of a visa in this case? Thanks

emergency advance parole- married US citizen- Sevis terminated

Hi Family,
I am currently back home on emergency advance parole as my dad passed away. I married a US citizen and applied for adjustment of status in September 2019. Let’s remind that the first time i came to the US, i entered on F1 student visa. I maintain my f1 status until November 30th where my I-20 has expired. I left the US on Dec 02nd and didn’t attend school. Two (02) days ago, i got an email from my school stating that since i am no longer attending school this quarter, that i violated my F1 visa and as a result my SEVIS got terminated. I got scared since i read that email. My concern is would that sevis termination affect my reentry to the US? What would you advise? I could not sleep since, please help.
Thank you
