Advance parole is a travel document that can be used in place of a visa to approve the temporary parole of an individual into the United States. The advance parole may also be used as permission to board an aircraft or other such means of transportation. It does not, however, replace your passport.
The document is most commonly used by an individual who has a pending Form I-485. If you leave the U.S. before your Application to Register Permanent Residence or to Adjust Status has been decided on, your case could be denied if you fail to obtain advance parole prior to your departure. There is a minor exception for certain nonimmigrant status holders (H-1; H-4; L-1; L-2; K-3; K-4; V-2; V-3), that allows them to leave the United States and come back in on their valid visas. However, the vast majority of non-immigrant status holders who are awaiting the outcome of their I-485s, need to obtain Advance Parole before traveling outside of the United States.
Advance parole is also necessary for asylum applicants who are still waiting on a decision from USCIS. As an asylum applicant, you are allowed to travel outside the U.S., however, if you do so without first obtaining advance parole, it will be assumed you have renounced your asylum application.

She was perfect! It was such a luck to have Julia Greenberg referred to me by my acquaintance. She is the most caring and helpful attorney I have ever worked with. She is very professional and knowledgeable in the immigration law, and she gave me great advice! I appreciate most that she is always available by phone or returns missed calls shortly – this is something that many attorneys in NYC do not do or have their assistants do who never give the correct answer. I approached Julia to help me prepare for my citizenship interview since I had, frankly speaking, not an easy case, and she did the best job I could expect. I could not imagine how my interview would have gone without her; her support was significant! If I ever have a question about any immigration matter I would definitely ask Julia for help again. Awesome
