Brooklyn, NY asked in Immigration Law for New York

Q: Can I travel with Uscis Advance Parole travel document abroad?

I got married to my wife (she's a US citizen) few months ago and I have applied for a Travel Document which will be coming sometime next month. Because of back log the green card interviews are now taking longer, our interview will be sometime late this year or early 2020.

My question is, can I travel with the travel document for 2 weeks to visit my family, will I face any problem upon returning to the us (JFK) since I overstayed my last Visa (b1/b2) will that raise any concern at the custom officer at the airport?

The last thing I want is not be able to enter the US and miss the green card interview as a result.

Thank you in advance

A: Even with advance parole, there is no guarantee of admission. The safest course of action is to remain in the U.S.
