Seattle, WA asked in Immigration Law for Washington

Q: Can i travel outside of the US while i-485 is pending? I already applied for i-131 and completed the biometric

My son filed i-130 for me and concurrently filed i-485, i-131 and i-765. I completed the biometric. Can i travel before receiving reentry permit? My son can mail me the document before i fly back. the national center processing time shows 6-8 month for processing i-131 and i need to travel before that.

A: i don't recommend you to travel without travel document as your I-485 may be deemed abundant : the immigration services can truck your departure record if you leave the US
