What Happens if Parole in Place is Denied?

The parole in place program was established by the Obama administration and is meant to help military servicemembers and their loved ones in difficult immigration situations. However, parole in place is not guaranteed, and if a request for parole in place is denied, it can be difficult to know what to do or where to turn. At Singular Law, our experienced immigration lawyers are here to help with this difficult situation. To learn more, call or contact our office to schedule an appointment today.

What is Parole in Place?

Parole in place is considered a discretionary program that is allowed on a case-by-case basis for urgent humanitarian reasons or for significant public benefit. This program is only for people who have entered the United States unlawfully and are considered applicants for admission. Parole in place is not available for people who entered the country legally and have outstayed their authorized period. This program is available to servicemembers, their spouse, widow(er), parent, or child of the following: 

  • An active servicemember,
  • An individual in the Selected Reserve or Ready Reserve, or
  • A former servicemember who either served in active duty or was a member of either reserve force who was not dishonorably discharged.

The Importance of Parole in Place

Under the current immigration laws, people who enter the United States unlawfully are not allowed to apply for green card permanent resident status, which is also known as an adjustment of status. Usually, this requires that the person return to their home country for consular processing, but this also often triggers a multi-year ban from returning to the United States for their initial illegal entry. The parole in place program alleviates these issues for servicemembers and their loved ones and allows a person to request an adjustment of status while staying in the country.

Denial of Parole in Place

Because the parole in place program is discretionary, denial of applications is a regular occurrence. As a discretionary program, this means that even if someone meets the criteria they can still be denied parole in place status. The application process can be complex and requires substantial documentation. However, with the assistance of knowledgeable and experienced legal counsel your chances of obtaining parole in place status increase significantly. A skilled attorney can ensure that the application is submitted correctly and that the best possible arguments are made for why you or your loved one deserves parole in place status. To learn more about how a lawyer can help with parole in place requests, talk to our office today.
