hi! I came to this country on B1 visa. changed it to F1 later on. I got married right before my i-20 got expired. my spouse filed i130. Then he became abusive. I filed a battered spouse case. and now I have i485 pending. I never overstayed and never went out of status. Can I now travel to my country for emergency case with advanced parole before I get approved for GC? What are my chances to reentry the country?
More information is needed. Was your I-360 approved? If not, then you run the risk that you will set off the ten year unlawful presence bar.
I strongly recommend appointment with a competent and experienced immigration attorney before you do anything. Good luck.
This is general information, not legal advice, and does not create an attorney client relationship.

Meet with an attorney before traveling. You may trigger an unlawful presence bar, but without knowing more I cannot say.
