H4 EAD - "Place of Last Entry into the U.S." Q#12 and Q#13 issue on I-765 with Preclearance Locations
My Wife went for a vacation to India came back to USA( JFK airport, NewYork) on May 11 thru Abu Dhabi International Airport(one of the pre clearance
location). I am applying for her I 765(H4 EAD), which is having
questions like "Place of Last Entry into the U.S." and "Date of Last
Entry into the U.S."
should I give Abudhabi Intl Airport/May10, 2016 or JFK Airport,Newyork/May 11,2016
in CBP its shows travel history as below
Arrival 2016 May 10 - MAA ABU DHABI INTL
Arrival 2013 January 02 - MIA MIAMI, FL
Please help me with this.
Abu Dhabi Intl. airport is the right answer for this one, since it is there that wife was "inspected" and "admitted" by CBP sitting at that "pre clearance" (foreign) airport, with then wife landing in JFK as if from a domestic flight, with no Immigration controls.

I agree with Attorney Behar.
Mr. Shusterman's (former INS Trial Attorney, 1976-82) response to your question is general in nature, as not all the facts are known to him. You should retain an attorney experienced in immigration law to review all the facts in your case in order to receive advice specific to your case. Mr. Shusterman's statement above does not create an attorney/client relationship.
Pre Abu Dhab airport is the response.
Attorney Robert Brown's (former INS Director, 1972-99) reply to your question is general in nature, and does not constitute legal advice as all facts are known to him. For specific advice or representation you should retain an attorney experienced in immigration law. Mr. Brown's reply on AVVO does not create an attorney/client relationship not constitute legal advice.
