My current advance parole expired a few months ago, and I am now applying for a new one. If I leave the U.S. now, will the USCIS deny my AP application?


There is a good chance that the USCIS will deny the pending I-131 application based on the travel. Unfortunately, the USCIS has a policy that, for initial AP applications – or for applications where the previous AP has expired – the applicant generally must remain in the U.S. until the AP is approved.
