An attorney can help you to provide documentation that demonstrates your need to leave the country
Fighting for Your Rights
Form I-512 is given those that are granted their petition for advance parole. This form will contain all of information regarding your travel application such as the date that you are expected back in the United States. It is extremely important to return by the date that is given on Form I-151 otherwise you may not be allowed back into the country upon your return. Having your documentation in order is extremely important if you are considering becoming a lawful permanent resident or a citizen. Staying in the United States illegally or leaving without notifying the USCIS is not worth the heartbreak that you may suffer if your immigration status is denied you later on.
