    My husband and I have the interview for his peermanent residency for February 6, 2008 at Garden City. We have booked tickets to travel on February 21 just two weeks after the interview. How likely is it that he will get the I515 stamp the day of his interview...What can we do to get the interviewer to stamp his Passport. If they dont stamp his passport is there anything we can do in order to keep our trip>?<

        Hello Knicks 4dee

        the only tip you need is to be honest and have original documents with you as the IO may request them. If your relationship is sincere, there is no worry about what may be asked. Lots of stories at visajourney.com to review.

        If the namecheck is complete... then he will get the stamp. tell the interviewer that you have a trip planned on the 21st. Advanced parole i-131 approval may be your only option if you are not able to secure a stamp at the interview. Read instructions on i-131 as it does not come with a guarantee to re-enter the country with a pending i-485.

        lets hope 4the best and that namecheck and everything is complete at your interview. then it is not a problem.

        Best wishes

              hi knicks4dee ,,Advance Parole is a document that allows certain aliens to re-enter the United States without an immigrant visa or non-immigrant visa after traveling abroad. Such aliens must be granted Advance Parole before leaving the United States. If they have not obtained Advance Parole prior to traveling abroad, they may not be permitted to re-enter the United States upon their return without obtaining some kind of visa.

              There are two main functions of an Advance Parole: 1) It enables an alien to come back to the U.S. after traveling abroad without having to obtain a visa to enter the U.S., 2) It preserves the pending Adjustment of Status or certain protected status that the alien has filed. Indeed, if an alien files for Adjustment of Status and then enters the U.S, on a visa instead of an Advanced Parole, the pending I-485 or a protected status may be considered as abandoned...but as 4now said ..if u have an i-485 pending,,dont leave the country,,bcoz they may denied ur entery even if u have an advance parole . good luck

                Was your husband out of status when you got married.. and or is he out of status now. visa expired etc?


                If his visa is expired. dont even consider it.

                as I told you .. discuss it with the I/o that will be interviewing you as to what his best suggestion /solution will be.

                  My wife is about 90 days into her I-485 application and we need to go back to China in May for family and estate planning stuff. We had planned to mail in the I-131 for advance parole tomorrow, expecting it to be issued in around 90 more days. What's the likelihood of her I-485 being considered abandoned if we just go to China for three weeks in May WITH advance parole? I'm a little concerned about this. Is there any surefire way to leave and be positive she can get back in? She has an H1 now and would be expected to return to work.

                      My interview was today! It was so much easier than I had expected. We arrived at 7:30 even though the appointment was for 8. By 7:45 they moved us into another room and we were called to be interviewed by 8:15. The person conducting the interview was really nice. She asked my husband where he lived then asked for pictures. She looked at the pictures and commented on them and she even asked us who certain people in the pictures were. She asked for some proof of address for my husband and I and any joint accounts. I gave her our telephone bill and a letter from the bank addressed to my husband. She then asked me for my letter of employment. Once I gave that to her she asked if she could keep some of the stuff. She asked my husband a few questions such as "have you ever been arrested?, Have you helped someone enter the country illegally?" etc. She asked my husband if he had any other family that lived in NY and she asked me how we met. That was it! She said she has to fill out some paper work and we should get a response in the mail within 3-5 weeks.

                            no stamp . We asked the interviewer about the stamp and she said they are no longer allowed to give the stamp because if someone doesnt get the stamp they might think they have been rejected and they might cause a scene. So now across the board they dont give the stamp. She said we should hear something within 3-5 weeks. Is that normal?

                              this is normal. I am asking you because your orginal question was about your being able to travel. I told you to discuss it with the I/o interviewing you. What did the I/o suggest you do about the travel?
