Can a person with a pending ( VAWA ) I - 360 and I - 485 travel outside the country and return using Advance Parole ?

Dallas, TX |

The I-360 and I-485 have been accepted for processing and are pending, and an I-131 Advance Parole document has been granted.

I would add that there are no overstay issues (in status at all times).

  1. Best answer

    Assuming you have no overstay issues, then yes.

  2. In theory yes. Its always risky though to travel out of country if you were out of status prior to you applying for VAWA. Nevertheless, USCIS will usually not issue the AP unless your eligible for parole.


  3. I agree with my colleagues. You should consult an experienced immigration attorney for this matter. You may schedule a consultation with an immigration lawyer in your area, my firm is handling these matters in New York.
