I have a pending I-485 (based on a approved I-140) and a valid Advance Parole/EAD. I will be out of the US for a short trip and I'm planning to use my Advance Parole to re-enter.
If my I-485 gets approved while I'm on my trip out of the US, can I still use my AP to enter the country? If I do so, am I considered a parolee or PR? Is there anything that I have to do afterward?
Yes you can if the I485 approved while you are outside of the USA. Only if it was denied, would you have a problem.
