and why didnt you take your US DL? Wouldnt that help solidify your identity upon return? Just saying, Mexican passport, AP "approval letter", EAD, and DACA approval letter would give you justmore credibility if agents were in doubt.

Ok. Soccerlilly. Thank you for that. your dates seemed a little off, and I still don't understand why you would not show your EAD or DL. But, you have shown proof. I'm deeply and sincerely sorry. But I thought you were fashionfreak (from texas) or Mexicandude...A catfish and troll. AP is an I-512L but yours says I-797 so I wonder if there is a change and now is just and I-797 notice of action.

I just listened to my sister in law she has worked for an immigration lawyer for over 10 yrs. I wasn't gonna question her she did all my paperwork for free all I had to do was give her the things she requested, she translated and notarized everything. She told me to only show those document because those are the ones they are familiar with and lesslikely to question. If they requested my DL or card I had them at hand.

Congrats Soccerlilly03! I can't help but notice that the reason for your Parole is ''AOS'' which means Adjustment of Status (as far as I know), are you sure that you weren't granted Advanced Parole based on a petition that is Current (meaning that there is a Visa number available for you)? Having DACA may have helped the process but it may not be the sole purpose as to why it (the Advanced Parole),was granted to you.
I still have a ''feeling'' that some important details that'll provide more clarity for us have not yet been stated, especially since everyone's case is different.

no I don't have any petition or application my husband and I were waiting because I didn't want to have to leave. My brother did it that way and it took him over a year to get his waiver.

Seriously! I think I will just stop writing Im very discouraged by this forum I thought people would be happy to hear someone was able to get AP and come back safely instead of calling me a troll lol, believe me I searched for anyone who had done it before I left because I was so scared and noone had posted anything now I see why.

Well congratulations if it's what you wanted and if it will help you then good for you. You are new to the forum so you really don't understand that some people are very young here (including me) and they might take things like these for face value and in the end it could've all been a lie. Not calling you a liar but we all need to protect ourselves and each other. There's people that don't sign in to the forum and just read what we post and we wouldn't want someone to risk not being able to come back just because someone decided to pull a 'troll' on all of us. This seems to not be the case sometimes so please do not feel offended in any way. You're undocumented just like us and you should know how things are when it comes to our status.

Not that I don't believe you and I'm happy for you but USCIS seems to be very lenient when it comes to AP applicants I really thought they were going to be a lot more strict. Well to all those that want to travel please wait till they're done with the new stuff they're doing and don't go crazy with it.

Oh and by the way you might be the first person to do this so maybe that's why you see no one posting about this.

I love that Flying was cautious we all have to be, there's really nothing wrong with that and since we are all undocumented we should understand that being cautious is important. Or else we'll be back where we were born...:roll:

Also I hope this whole AP stuff doesn't make my EAD take longer to get here! :mad: jaaaaaaaaaykay

Yes, But in march the I-797 was changed not to resemble papers that show any type of immigration benefit. So, you see that's why it didn't make any sense. That means they messed up when they printed the paper.

Are you talking about it being printed on white paper? She did get a benefit, she got parole. I got two I-797s recently in the same type of paper as hers as well as plain bond paper(white paper) for other things. All I know is they are greenish color like hers and it's not a mistake. Whenever they approve something they send it that color.

Did you have the chance to go over the Advanced Parole application paperwork that was submitted through your sister? Maybe the fact that you have a U.S. Citizen immediate relative (your husband) and a U.S. Citizen child helped make a compelling case for you. Nothing has ever been filed for you with immigration besides DACA? Sorry for all the questions, I appreciate you sharing your experience with us.

One doesn't necessarily have to be a DACA beneficiary to be approved AP.One can also have a pending case for Adjustment of Status and can apply for AP that way as well.If the latter for sure the individual will more than likely be allowed in so I assume Flying is just being cautious by asking for details.

No they're not,AP is AP.They can't change it to suit only one set of individuals that would be against the law.USCIS seems to be issuing regulations to streamline the process for DACA beneficiaries.It has also always been possible since AP existed but DHS I believe didn't think it counted until sued in court successfully.

@ianus what im about to ask might be a bit awkward lol. yeah youre right in that during the interview to confirm the marriage is valid, they take the i94 from the original passport it was stapled to. My only concern is for siblings who have come here when they were children and have their i94's stapled to one of the parents' passport (including their own i94) i have heard that they pull out all of the i94s (siblings + parent) and the judge signs the passport. Have you ever heard this? I feel like it might be problematic if the judge takes all of them instead of just the person who is interviewing. After all the other sibling may presumably try to marriage aos later on or the parent might need it.
The I-94's that are in the Parent's passport should still count as a legal entry document for the children because DHS creates a file on all non-citizen Aliens they encounter and the I-94 documents in question would go to each respective individual's A-file showcasing a record of legal entry.


Concerning the issue of an I-797 that is atypical USCIS procedure where they give updates on a person's case through a Notice of Action[I-797] whether updates or approvals,however the latter counts as an official document and can be used so the OP seemed legit.

Re: Back from traveling with AP through DACA
 
^^^yup...but ok. It just seemed interesting whit the direction she was given and all plus dates and the I-797 instead of the I-512. But, she says she has no knowledge of how her paperwork was filed. It just seems like she has an AOS app waiting for her?

Soccerlilly did you come in with a Visa to the United States during your first entry?

I'm going to repeat what MsAccountant says. Yolo now or just wait for our process to be done.
