i EWI in 1999. I got my case deferred on 12/25/2012. I would like to study abroad with Advance Parole. I am also married to a US citizen going on 3 years now but we have NOT filed a petition yet because we do not want to go through Consular Processing. I have heard that, if you are granted Advance Parole, once and if you are paroled into the US that will 'fix' your EWI and you would be able to Adjust Status instead of having to go through Consular Processing. Is this true? Possible? or only 'in theory'?
