I would make an infopass with your local immigration office and go in with your receipts for the 485 and 131 and see if they will issue the parole. I would laso bring the death certificate and your borth certificate with English translations.

Answer
Normally Hs camn travel without needing parole. Your problem is that you do not have an H-1 visa from your new employer in your pasport. You would have top go to the Embassy before you come back and if they do not give you the new visa you are stuck. If the local office is not too far, try going in person very early in the morning and see if they will process the emergency parole in 1 day. Bring everything I told you to bring.

Robert
