Go to www.uscis.gov to find out how to make an InfoPass appointment. You won't know what answer you'll get from them until you go talk to them. You can certainly give it a try. Bring proof that you've filed your I-751, and proof that it's arrived at its destination. Keep in mind that even if they give you travel permission right now, you will need to be back in the USA to do your biometrics. Make sure someone is checking your mailbox at home and can let you know your appointment date.

Hi there, looks like they've deposited our check - is it safe to assume a receipt notice might be issued? (don't want to raise my hopes unnecessarily)...thanks

How sick is you mum really? I'm scratching my head wondering.

Unfortunately, not a very helpful comment but I do think you actually must be rather knowledgable in the general area and people could benefit from your responses...

At the risk of interpreting his comment, I believe Mr. Folinsky was trying to gauge your risk tolerance. If your mum is very sick, you will simply travel - because you are allowed to leave the US, and then worry about getting back until afterwards. If your mum is less sick, you can spend the time waiting until you have permission to return prior to leaving.

In other words, family concerns must come before immigration concerns. It's always been that way... always will be!

I naturally did weigh up these considerations against her current status. The risk of not being able to enter the country again was also a concern for me especially as I would be travelling with my 1 yr old and 2 yr old. If I did not have any small children, I would probably think differently. In any case, we provided all medical docs etc... so we'll see. Thanks for your views...

Well taken. That said, there are often many varying emotional factors at work and I won't begin to get into OP's mind. However, perceived necessity for immediate travel is a fairly common situation in my experience. It turns out on occasion that the surface necessity is not really that deep at all. I'm not a psychologist.

I don't know here -- I wonder.
