Hi All, quick question if you guys can answer. If I travel on AP and re enter using it, Will my H1B still be valid ? Or I have to go for stamping and enter on my H1B. Answer would be appreciated. Thanks

Hello Everyone, I have been a silent reader for months now. My husband has changed employees since we filled our packet.

We have our interview on June 6th based in Atlanta.

For those who have been through this. Did you have to take ay specific documentation to state job change?

Also as a general question. Does my husband (US Citizen) have to take his pay stubs to the interview? if so how many previous paystubs?

Anyone here traveled to Russia with an advance parole? Please share your experience. Thank you in advance. I've traveled internationally with the parole and everything went smooth. I just don't know what the customs is like in Russia and if they know what an AP is.

I am really worried about the timeline of my AP/EAD - have been waiting for months and still did not get any update:

Priority Date: Sept 12
Notice Date: Sept 19
National Benefits Center

My lawyer submitted an inquiry 4 weeks ago and we got an email from uscis stating that we should hear back by May 9.... we did not get any update so far.

It's been 8 months now!!
I am based in LA/California.

Anyone experiencing the same long waiting time get their AP/EAD??

Hello everyone,

I have to submit documents to support my expedite request for the renewal of my Ead/ Ap. The originals are in a foreign lamguage. Does anyone know if the translations need to be certified?

 Thanks very much!

Hi everyone,

I want to share my experience with advance parole as it might be helpful to someone. I came here on a B1/B2 visa and extended it for a few months. I got married to my USC boyfriend of two years 10 months after I came in (still in the visa). He started being abusive from the beginning but I had already filed for adjustment (May 2017) and had nowhere to go. I didn't apply for an Advance Parole because he didn't let me and also his lawyer told me that they never let people with advance parole back in (BIG LIE). I left him a year after we filed, in May 2018 and I only had my EAD by then. I then applied for I - 360 WAVA case and went to my I - 485 interview alone, with the I - 360 receipt, asking them to hold my I - 485 in abeyance and transfer it to the new case I - 360. In the meantime I applied for an advance parole just to have it and I was approved.

My grandma happened to be very sick so I went to my home country this month. I spent 9 days there and was super stressed out about coming back. Just because my case wasn't a simple I - 485 anymore and I had a lot of open processes and I was scared that will confuse the officers. I brought ALL the documents I had with me, even my FBI clearance just in case.

When I came back I told them about my Advance Parole and I gave them my passport. They took me to a room where I waited less than 10 mins. They just needed to confirm the documents as my surname had been hyphenated. Didn't ask me for any extra documents and I made it back in the US without any inconvenience.

I hope this helps!
