Hello, my name is ***** ***** I will be the immigration attorney helping you today. If you submit the application for advance parole (travel permit) on form I-131 then your wife will not be allowed to leave the US for 3-4 months. It has been taking closer to 3 months in recent months. She can leave the US before that, however her application for the green card wil be considered abandoned if she does. If her advanced parole application is not approved, she will have to wait until she receives her green card. That is currently taking 5-6 months.

Good luck to you during this process and I hope this answer has helped you!
