Need someone to tell me their exp of EAD/AP for peace of mind

Filed i-131, i-765 i-485
15th April 2019
16th April received
25th May finger print review was completed

nothing since...
Any Nebraska April filers in the same boat without a valid expedited reason. Hoping to travel in just over a months time but looking more and more unlikely as the days go by

Thanks in advance!

I came to USA 4 years ago on F1 , after 1.5 years in school I met an accident and was on the bed and went out of status and after staying out of status for 18 months, after that I married to my girlfriend and applied for AOS , unfortunately my case went under review after interview and after 1 years my wife started abusing me and we got separated and took my AOS application back and applied VAWA , now I get my ead combo card....

Should it be safe with travel on advance parole for 2 months to India? my attorney warned me about consequences of overstayed..

Someone saying I should travel like for 3-4 weeks only .....

Please suggest

Hey, is it possible to become a flight attendant with a EAD and Advance parole? I know some airlines travel to Canada .

Do you know any airlines that will make an exception if I can’t leave the United States?

Any advice ?!?

I got approved for the AP, my I-485 is pending- my son is sponsoring my green card- I received the approval for advance parole in mail last week. In that it says that the travel document will follow. As I will not require that document for leaving US, can I travel now and have someone send it to me before I come back to US for me to show it at entry or should I wait for the document to come and then leave? Does anyone know how long it usually takes for the document to come from the date of approval of AP?
Thank you!

Hello Guys, I wanted to share my experience with you. I've been reading thousands of experiences over 2 years about the risk of traveling with advance parole if you overstayed with your visa.

I filed my AOS in February and didn't receive my combo card, but because of my job I had to travel outside of USA and I applied for Emergency Advance parole in NYC office. They gave me the advance parole for 1 year for multiple entries. It only took 30 minutes! I was really shocked by how easy it was. I've been waiting for that stupid document for years and they just gave it to me in 30 minutes!

Anyway, I finally got on the plane to Russia and I went to Japan, Thailand, Ukraine for two months of traveling. I departed to NYC 2 weeks ago, I was so nervous, scared that they won't allow me in the country because I overstayed for 3 years and I got arrested for an accusation of shoplifting (Judge gave me 2 days community service).

So I gave my advance parole document to the customs officer and he asked me to put my fingers to scan and after that, he called another officer to take me to office. That was pretty expected. So I went to the office and wait for 10 minutes and the officer called my name and asked me "What base is your application?" and I said it's thorough marriage and he gave my passport back "you are good to go, sir" .

That was it! I was so shocked and happy it was so easy! They didn't ask me anything or give me a hard time. All the people and lawyers say don't travel until you get your GC but that just stupid! If you have your advance parole just use it guys! I haven't heard any single person who got trouble with AP.

So I wish this could help and give some trust to others who afraid to travel! Goodluck!

Hi. I filled my I-765 and I-131 on 10/22/2018. It’s been already 275 days after they received my case. On July 1 st I filled injury request of outside normal processing time. It showed that I should expect a reply by July 23. Today is July 24 and still nothing. Please give me some advice, how to make them already produce my card.

Hi all.

Below is my timeline:

Received date for I130, I485, I765 - Feb. 15, 2019
Bio taken - Mar 4, 2019
I485 Status changed to Ready to be scheduled for an interview - Mar. 11, 2019
Received date for I131 - Mar 21, 2019
Address change - April 1, 2019

I called USCIS on July 11 to expedite I131 due to my medical reason, my uncle being ill and my USC husband's brother is getting married in my home country beginning of Sept. 2019.
The agent advised me that USCIS might ask for proofs of my uncle and my medical records and I will hear a response in 5 days.
Exactaly 5 days later, (including weekends) on July 16, I received an email from USCIS saying my case is currently under review and I should receive a decision or notice of other action shortly.
They didn't ask me to provide any proofs. I'm worried because they might deny my expedite request without even seeing the proofs.
It's been a week since I've received an email and there's no update since then.
Anybody was in the same situation?
