Default GC approved while outside of usa

My wife's green card was approved on Feb 27th. My wife is currently in India with valid Advance Parole. I received her green card during March 15th. I am planning to visit India during June and bringing my wife along with me. It will be almost 5 months when I come back on July 1st week.

Will it create problem for my wife to re-enter to US? Since she has valid AP and GC card, can she enter without any problem? or does she need to come early since her GC was received ?

There should be no issues if you are taking her GC along with you, thats all she will need. She can enter with GC. No need to even mention AP to the CBP officer

Will Advance Parole be valid until she comes back? Technically you cannot take her Green card and give it to her outside US.

She can enter without any issue using AP. I was in similar situation when GC approved and mailed for my entire family when we were away from USA. All of us entered using AP without any issues.

Thanks

I was in a similar situation, I took my wife's GC with me when I went to India and she travelled back on GC instead of AP, no issues at the Immigration's.

Your wife is a permanent resident now and CBP will let you in as a PR as long as you show the proof.. Don't worry about technicality of AP or GC as they have their latest status in screen when you show up at the gate.

I don't think there is any law to prevent carrying/mailing GC. I know any passport cannot be sent in mail; thats not allowed by law.

Hi all,

am in a similar situation. both me and my wife are in india. my gc was approved before I left and hers was approved only today. we are scheduled to leave back in 10 days, so that probably dosent give us time for the card to reach our home in US and have it mailed out.

Does anyone know of any relevant memo/document to show the immigration person to indicate that she can re-enter on AP even if the GC is approved?

from the above postings I gather that she can enter on AP even if GC is approved right?
