Travel when N-400 pending

Question: I filed N-400, biometrics is done. My parents are sick and I want to visit them. Can I travel before my interview or do I need permission from USCIS. My stay in Pakistan will be for maximum 5-6 months. Is it Ok to go and see my parents, please let me know.

Answer: You can visit abroad but not for the length of time you have proposed in the question below. The attorney would advise you to visit for under 90 days. The Government is being strict currently. Also, it is taking 12-15 months in adjudicating N-400.
