Immigration has recently published a Policy Memorandum regarding the availability of parole-in-place for spouses, children, and parents of active duty members of the U.S. Armed Forces, the Selected Reserve of the Ready Reserve, and former members of the U.S. Armed Forces or Selected Reserve of the Ready Reserve.
Parole-in-place is a discretionary measure that immigration may grant on a case-by-case basis. With parole-in-place, an individual is eligible for work authorization, does not have to worry about the risk of deportation based on unlawful status, and may even apply for a green card without having to leave the country!
Please be aware that there are certain limitations in who can file under this new policy and there is no guarantee that immigration will approve every parole-in-place application. As such, if you or someone you know believes that they may be eligible for this new benefit, please contact the office so that we can reexamine your current situation.
