My current Advance parole is expiring in June 20, 2011. How soon can I renew renew my AP before expiration? I am planning to travel home country this summer. Is there any 120 days advance filing rule like EAD?

If I file new Advance Parole, do I need to send my current original Advance parole document? So, far I have been told by my attorney to send original advance parole together with new AP filing documents. And I have been sending my original advance parole everytime I renew my AP.

Filing Period for Renewal of an Advance Parole Document:

If you are applying for renewal of your advance parole document (I-512L or I-512), USCIS will accept and adjudicate Form I-131 filed up to 120 days before the date your current Advance Parole document expires

USCIS - I-131, Application for Travel Document (http://www.uscis.gov/portal/site/uscis/menuitem.5af9bb95919f35e66f614176543f6d1a/?vgnextoid=b11747a55773d010VgnVCM10000048f3d6a1RCR D&vgnextchannel=7d316c0b4c3bf110VgnVCM1000004718190a RCRD)

does anyone actually take the trouble to visit the USCIS website at all!! ??

you get AP for 1 year from date of approval not from the date your current AP expires.
i applied 120 days before and it was approved in 45 days. so i got AP for 9.5 months.

I have renewed AP every year since 2008 and the start date has always coincided with the expiration date of the prior AP; I have always gotten an AP with an effective validity period of 12 months.

I always attach a copy of the old AP with the renewal.

Thank you for your response. My lawyer always ask to send original AP during every AP renewal. Even I have been renewing my AP since 2007.
This time I do not want to send original AP so I just wanted to make sure if we really need to send current original AP for new renewal?

A copy of the old AP should be sufficient.

I self filed in Jan (receipt date 01/05/11) and got an e-mail on 02/08/11 that travel document was processed and mailed to the address on record. So a little over a month !!

No, you do not need to send your current original AP document.

Hope this helps.
