Hi, I am working on submitting all of the Forms in the next day or 2. I have some questions regarding Form I-131. In the Form under Advance Parole Document, Section D. They mentioned that if I travel before the advance parole document is issued, my application will be deemed abandoned??? I am on H1B, which expires on Jan. 01 2007, and I am intending on travelling on Aug. 1st for 1 month visit back home. I understood that I can file for Advance parole and can get it even if i have H1B simultanesly. As long as I dont report/use my EAD card at work then my H1B will not be cancelled, so i can still use it to travel. Now given that advance parole decission takes around 60-90 days, that said, I dont think i will get it before August 1st. That means I am only relying on my H1B to travel and come back. Which is Ok. But What does that mean that if I left the country while I have a pending I-131 application it will be abandoned??? Any thoughts? If thats the case, should I wait till I come back and file Form I-131 alone later on? Or I can only file this Form (I-131) along all the other forms like I-130, I-485, etc... If I can file later, what is the easiest way to do it, so that they can add it to my file at the USCIS office in Chicago. Will they know that I have I-485 application pending by then or do I have to provide proof/copies?
