Parole-In-Place --US Immediate Relatives--Workshop Video Part 2

Parole-In-Place --US Immediate Relatives--Workshop Video Part 1

video

Since we conducted this workshop we have heard two things of importance:

1. USCIS is not likely to grant parole-in-place to immediate relatives of US citizens unless the I-130 (or I-360 for abuse victims and widows/widowers) has been filed. Note, however, USCIS continues to be sympathetic to specific cases where extreme hardship exists caused by medical issues (handicapped or disabled individuals, special needs children).

2. If USCIS denies the parole-in-place application, it is likely to turn over the name and information about the foreign national to ICE. This means that removal proceedings will likely be filed against you more promptly than if you did not file the parole-in-place application.

Just a caution.

Final Parole-in-Place Workshop

MLSC will host its final Parole-in-Place workshop.  This one is ONLY FOR CNMI Permanent residents (under the old CNMI law) and THEIR immediate relatives, and for those born here of foreign national parents between January 1, 1974 and January 9, 1978.

Workshop starts at 1 PM at American Memorial Park.
