Sometimes United States residents need to travel outside of the United States for periods of time longer than their status allows, more than six months. In these situations it is important to obtain a travel document, or an advanced parole, in order to be allowed back into the country. With the travel document, residents, refugees, and individuals waiting for adjustment of status, are allowed to travel without the fear of losing their status.
Before leaving the United States with a travel document, it is important to determine if other factors, such as arrests or warrants for arrest, will make it difficult or impossible to reenter the United States. If you have questions about applying for a travel document, or if you believe you are eligible and would like assistance with the application process, feel free to contact Shryock Law Firm, LLC to schedule a consultation.
