Default Long term stay in India while on AP

Is it safe to stay in India for long term (say 4-5 months) while you are on Advance Parole?

My wife is on pending I-485 and she has valid Advance Parole/ EAD (she has H4 extension but she didn't go to consulate to get it stamped when she went to India last time and decided to be on AP/EAD). Now she is planning to go to India for 4-5 months, so my question is: "IS IT SAFE TO BE IN INDIA FOR SUCH LONG WHILE YOU ARE ON AP?" She has valid AP till May 2010.

as long as she returns before the expiry date on the AP, she is fine.

Smile Your wife should be OK

My wife came to USA last year on AP after staying for 3 months in India. Couple of my company related questions were asked but rest was OK. You and your wife should be fine.

Thanks

I am on EAD and I dont have any current employment, except a good faith future employment offer. I am already in bench more than 4 months and tired of it. I want to travel to India and come back after 2 months, using AP. What sort of questions being asked while entering USA and what documents I need to provide?

Thanks in advance
