If you have already filed your application to adjust status, you will need a travel permit to return to the US and to avoid having the application considered abandoned. You must apply for this travel permit (advance parole).

If you do, you must make sure that there is nothing in your past that could make you inadmissible.

The best is to ask the attorney who is handling your adjustment application about all this.

Same as first answer. Advance parole if eligible.


You may be eligible for advanced parole travel doc... just consult with an attorney first as you do not want to leave country if you are subject to the bars of inadmissibility
