Understanding Parole in Place in Immigration Law

Understanding Parole in Place in Immigration Law

"Parole in Place," a valuable provision that can be a game-changer for certain eligible individuals in the United States immigration system. It can offer relief and stability for people to continue their lives in the United States.

What is Parole in Place?

Parole in Place (PIP) is discretionary relief granted by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) that allows certain eligible family members of U.S. military personnel and veterans to be "paroled" into the United States, essentially providing them with a legal status and protection against deportation.

Eligibility Criteria:

1. Spouses, Parents, and Unmarried Children: PIP is primarily designed for spouses, parents, and unmarried children of U.S. citizens who are serving or have served in the U.S. Armed Forces.

2. Entered Without Inspection: Eligible individuals must have entered the United States without inspection, meaning they did not go through the regular immigration inspection process at a port of entry.

3. No Serious Criminal History: Applicants should not have a serious criminal history or other factors that may make them ineligible.

Benefits of Parole in Place:

1. Protection from Deportation: Individuals granted PIP are considered to be in a period of authorized stay, protecting them from deportation during the period of parole.

2. Work Authorization: Parolees are eligible to apply for work authorization, allowing them to support themselves and contribute to their communities.

3. Potential Path to Adjustment of Status: PIP may open doors to other immigration benefits, such as eligibility for adjustment of status or other forms of relief.

Consulting with an Immigration Attorney:

While Parole in Place can be a lifeline for eligible individuals, navigating the application process can be complex. It's highly recommended to consult with an experienced immigration attorney who can provide guidance, ensure all requirements are met, and help advocate for the rights and benefits that Parole in Place can provide.

Parole in Place can be a valuable tool for eligible family members of U.S. military personnel and veterans, offering a pathway to legal status, protection against deportation, and the opportunity to contribute to the diverse fabric of the United States.
