      Hi Bruni,

      Welcome. Part of the adjustment of status process includes completion of the I-131 Application for Travel Document. If this has not been completed and approved, you need to file for Advance Parole.
      Go here for more information on AP.

      Good luck!

        If you leave while waiting for adjustment of status, it will be abandoned. However, file the Form I-131, advance parole, prior to leaving. This will allow your adjustment to continue while you are waiting for the adjustment of status.

          Please also note that the current processing time for I-131 is 3 to 6 months. Be aware that USCIS has no time limitation on any of the application processed in a specified time frame

            Please also not that there is NO guarantee.. I repeat NO guarantee that you will be let back into the country just because you have advanced parole document.

            If your visa has expired.. and you are an overstay, then I do not recommend you leaving before getting your greencard in hand.
