Mobility Immigration recently obtained approval of an application for Military Parole in Place for the spouse of a veteran of the U.S. Air Force. Our client, who entered the U.S. as a child without inspection, will be paroled into the United States without having to leave the country and be issued an I-94 evidencing their legal admission into the U.S.. After spending the last 10 years renewing their DACA, our client is now eligible for adjustment of status and will be able to obtain permanent residency without leaving the U.S.
The Parole-in-Place program was specifically created to assist members of the U.S. Armed Forces in obtaining legal status for their immediate family members. The family members eligible for parole in place are spouses, children, and parents of individuals who are serving, or have served in the past, in any branch of the U.S. Armed Forces, including the Army, Air Force, Navy, Marines, National Guard, and Coast Guard. It is important to remember that these family members are eligible for parole in place even if the individual is no longer a member of the armed forces, is a veteran, or is deceased.
Parole-in-Place is one of the rare ways that an individual who entered the U.S. illegally can obtain a legal "entry" into the country without having to actually having to leave. Immediate family members of a U.S. citizen are able to adjust their status and obtain their green cards without ever leaving the U.S. if they have a evidence of a legal entry into the U.S. By obtaining Parole-in-Place, family members of U.S. service members and veterans who entered the country illegally are granted a legal "entry" and can then qualify for permanent residency through adjustment of status in the U.S.
