My wife and daughter would like to travel back to Argentina…

Jen, My wife and daughter would...
Jen,
My wife and daughter would like to travel back to Argentina to visit family and friends. Is this a sufficiently good reason to put in form I-131 (request for travel documents)? Do they risk being denied either the green card or re entry to the US if they travel abroad before the paperwork is complete?
Thanks!

Yes, if that is the reason then that is what they should put on the form. I would suggest just family, not friends as that seems less important to include friends and the I-131 should be for a more important reason. If someone is elderly or sick, it is worth mentioning also as an additional reason.

No, there is not a risk as long as the I-131 is approved and they did not spend any time in the US illegally. If they did spend time illegally here then there is a small chance that they could have issues returning but ultimately should be allowed in.

Good luck to you and I hope this answer has helped you.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
