Its a new program they're trying out in NYC. People who applied recently have been getting interviews really fast, whereas people who applied years beforehand still haven't gotten theirs. Unfair, I know

Boy, it sounds to me like you have an inexperienced attorney. He/she seems to be under the impression that USCIS will not issue you AP unless first determining that you are not subject to a 3/10 year bar. Good grief!

I agree. All too many times it seems USCSI *will* take your money and give you a document (in this case AP) for which you aren't qualified to use. It's almost like USCIS says...well, nothing wrong with issuing it...it's up the user to know whether he/she is eligible to use it without risk.

Thank you all for your concern.
I know it's a very tough decision for you to make but from what I interpret from the Advisory that you posted:

http://uscis.gov/graphics/publicaffa...ory3_24_04.pdf

Above document clearly state the following in the Note section:

"Under the Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act of 1996, aliens who depart the United States after being unlawfully present in the United States for certain periods can be barred from admission to lawful permanent resident status, even if they have obtained Advance Parole."

From what I understand from the above statement, Advance Parole is safe to use for those who DO NOT have any overstay and their application is currently being processed. But if you have unlawful stay in the US, you will be barred regardless of whether or not you have an AP. That's just my interpretation and I am not any legal expert.

Good luck with whatever decision you make!

Well can I apply for AP now even though I filed in NYC in 2002, already had my interview in May 2004 and my case is still pending due to outstanding security background check??

For students with D/S on their I-94 the illegal presense time doesn't start ticking until an immigration officer or judge makes an official determination that they are out of status. That is, a student may be out of status, but not illegally present. Get it?
