As I understand it, Advance Parole is only approved for things like emergencies or necessary work-related reasons. I was told by an attorney here in Fort Worth that it would *not* be granted for traveling back to obtain residency status/passport in Spain, and could even negatively affect an application for permanent residency in the US. Is this understanding correct? My fiancee disagrees after consulting an attorney in Spain, and believes there is a way to do it. Thoughts?
As I explained the first time you cannot have permanent residence in the US and another country at the same time. Since I explained that when you asked your question the first time, I don't see why you are surprised when another attorney told you the same thing, essentially.
I agree with the colleague. Besides, you already asked this question before
