Last year I had a serious fire injury and was burned >60% . I was in the hospital for most of 2009 but back to work again. However, during this fire my both hands were badly burned and lost finger tips of both hands.

I have 485 pending and working on EAD. But not sure how this will impact my green card process ( if finger printing is required) or my reentry in US on Advance Parole. I would like to travel and visit India soon.

Any suggestions recommendations are highly appreciated.

I had a bad burn in one diwali night on one of thumb. but once healed the same finger print came back. Finger prints are unique and never changes.

I wish that was the case, but they were burned so bad that had to be ampuated.

I think you can apply for waiver.
Read this link.
