The Marianas Office of Micronesian Legal Services Corporation will be hosting a series of workshops to help people prepare Parole-In-Place applications. These workshops are aimed at those foreign nationals / aliens who have no other options for their status. Each workshop targets a specific category of foreign nationals who are likely to have success or may have a good chance at success in getting Parole-In-Place from the USCIS.
The first workshop is scheduled for Sunday, September 18, 2011 at American Memorial Park at 1 PM. It is for ONLY those foreign nationals who are spouses or widows/widowers of citizens of Palau, the Federated States of Micronesia (FSM), or the Republic of the Marshall Islands (RepMar), collectively called the Freely Associated States (FAS).
Parole-In-Place is an option of last-resort. Generally speaking, where other options are available, like the CW permit for those employed, those options should be exhausted first. Although MLSC will conduct the workshop to help people understand the process and put together their applications, no individual legal advice will be given. MLSC will not be accepting cases or filing on behalf of those who attend the workshops. The purpose of the session is simply to help get information out and help people utilize the process as successfully as they can.
Each workshop will be conducted in English. Each workshop is limited by the capacity of the auditorium at American Memorial Park. If there are no auditorium seats available, the sessions will be closed. For more information, contact the Marianas Office at 234-6243.
