What is the date on your cash register receipt?

A question for you, why would you want to take a cruise of the Caribbean or Canada and not leave the ship?What if something happens and your ship must be evacuated?Better to have the document and be assured of your safe return and adjustment then to worry.Bleh, so many questions, I think that's everything.Just as one small example, before we went across
the border the first time, I did a Google search and printed out a post
you made describing the first time Jim used his AP so we both knew what
to expect.Just as one small example, before we went across

As of today, it's been 6 weeks since our AOS interview in Detroit and
still no approval letter. They
guy we were working with was training, so another INS agent walked him
through the whole process.Wonder what Jim will do when we cross the border for the first time and he is a US citizen as well as a Canadian.We'd just rather not come back from a nice second honeymoon to having my ass being banned from the country.One amusing if sad note, in this age of heightened security:
after they processed Serge's AP, the agent said, and you are? to me.It took about 10 minutes for my husband's
paperwork to be processed, and he was paroled until Feb.
I was thinking that too.
We, too, have gotten A/Ps from New York City INS.

Actually, no, just his.I
thought that the AP was usually good for one year, and bit my lip from
saying, yeah, and pay another $87!Anyway, the only drawback is that
we will probably have to go to the secondary inspection every time we
cross the border, a small price to pay to be able to visit Sergio's
family.
I said I was his wife, a USC, and she said okay.It is only good for as long as INS has deemed it so on the paperwork.It might be limited to one trip, one month, six months or up to a year.Would I need AP to travel by air domestically, considering the only I-94 in my passport is my expired VW stamp. 7, 2004.The first
trip was on Feb.

Firstly, how long does Advanced Parole take to be processed based on an already pending AOS application in NYC?

The INS received our I-130 / I485 application a day before my VW expired, could I technically have overstayed in the time between them receiving the applications, and processing it?

Secondly, I'm assuming that by leaving the mainland of the US, I'll need the AP to re-enter with my wife, even if I don't step off the ship into Bermuda or Canada (or where ever we go to)?

Lastly, she was also pondering Florida or Las Vegas.That might have occurred a week or two after receipt.

A/P is not always good for one year.

Due to the delay between them receiving and processing/approving the petition, would I have any problems re-entering with AP?Or are bars on entry only applied to overstays beyond 180 days?A question for you, why would you want to take a cruise of the Caribbean or Canada and not leave the ship?What if something happens and your ship must be evacuated?Better to have the document and be assured of your safe return and adjustment then to worry.

Last night, my wife was mulling over cruise vacation websites, as she is totally addicted to cruises, and wants to go on one this year with me, only we are unsure about AP the INS.

This past weekend we finally went to Sergio's hometown of Toronto to
visit his family.

Rete
nbsp;Didn't you and your husband hand the drive-thru agent your documents
nbsp;when you first drove up to the booth?If so, your nationality was noted
nbsp;and there was no reason for secondary inspection to ask for additional
nbsp;proof from you.But would assume 60 to 90 days approximately.Once Serge handed the agent his AP, that was
all he looked at.

Rete
I would think it would be stupid for you to have a travel document to travel domestically, as what if you move, vacation, etc?I think you only need to show picture ID when you travel domestically as you are not crossing any borders. 7, 2004.Would I need AP to travel by air domestically, considering the only I-94 in my passport is my expired VW stamp. :-)

Thanks for clearing up the info about the AP - I will also be hopeful
that they only granted him six months because they figure he'll be
approved by then, and we won't have to pay again (and this time pay the
higher fees!).No checking of
paperwork or asking for ID.However, we differ from you in that our A/P application was originally sent with the AOS petitions.

Isn't it great to be able gauge what to anticipate by the experience of others.It's such a big help to be able to see what others went
through.We presented his paperwork at the border, and again
were sent to secondary inspection.No checking of
paperwork or asking for ID.So she crossed 2/7/04 out on the front of his AP paperwork
and wrote 8/3/03 in.

Just thought I would post our first two experiences using my husband's
Advance Parole to return to the US after visiting Canada.Unless the agent saw there was a problem with the dates written, Jim had only to go through secondard once for each new A/P, only showing his passport and A/P to the drive-thru agent and we were free to go.They checked his passport for the visa,
noted that he has been granted AP due to filing for his AOS, removed his
K-1 I-94 and issued a new I-94, and stamped his passport and the AP
paperwork.Even though mailed the day before its expiration, receipt at the mailroom does not necessarily constitute acceptance of your petition.A lot depends on what you ask for, what they are willing to give and when they anticipate your adjustment interview to be. 8, when we went to Windsor for a little furniture
shopping.You and others have made the whole process
so much easier for us.We open both passports and piggy back them and in the center would slip Jim's A/P or now we put his green card.

If you want to travel anytime this year, I would definitely apply for it asap to ensure that you have it in hand when you are ready to go.The checks were cashed around the 15th though.Our crack border security at work.Since they limited him to 8/03 I'm thinking perhaps he will have his AOS results by that time.

secondary inspection.One amusing if sad note, in this age of heightened security:
