Will one year requirement for asylee to apply for adjustment be reset and recount if asylee travel with refugee travel document?

Irvine, CA |

my wife came US EWI, she was granted asylum in 02/13. Can she apply for refugee travel document to travel aboard? she needs wait for one year to apply adjustment on 02/14. if she travels with RTD abroad for one month and back to US in 07/13, will the one year requirement for AOS be reset? meaning she will not be able to apply for adjustment until 07/14? or just delay one month to 03/14? thanks

Sorry to ask again. I consulted with a local lawyer, he said the one year requirement get reset every time you travel outside us. I just want to make sure what he said is true or not.

I think you consulted a corporate attorney, not an immigration one.
