Was just married last week in US to husband, who was born in US. My h1b has been extended twice, and will expire in June. I want to travel to europe, and return to the US while my h1b is still valid. My husband wants to file I-130 and I-485 before I travel abroad. His attorney says that I can exit/enter US using my h1b just as I have several times before we were married. He says that I do not need advanced parole, and that my 485 will not be "abandoned" if I travel. Furthermore, he says that I should have no problem returning to the US as long as I have the h1b and 797b work permit. My employer handled legal affairs before, but now I have to get my own legal asistance. Please give an opinion before I commit to any action, as I need to spend a lot of money, and want to do it right.
I agree with my colleagues.
If you have additional questions, you can always contact an immigration lawyer directly, whether myself or one of my colleagues. Good luck to you.
