'Parole' process clarified by USCIS for military members' family

Applying for a visa can be a complicated and scary process. There are so many things that the undocumented (or visa-seeking) person needs to organize and present to immigration authorities to attain a visa, or residency, or really any special status granted by the U.S. immigration system. During this period, there could be unforeseen complications or even legal threats that confront the applicant.

This is why it is so important for any visa applicant to consult an attorney before, during and after the visa process. Before the application, an attorney can help you make sure all of your documentation is in order. During your application, your attorney can help you fill out the application appropriately and help defend you against any legal complications that may arise. After the application, your attorney can support you with any legal help you may need, and ensure that you are compliant with any visa regulations that apply to you.

One of the fears that some undocumented people may have is that once they apply, they may be deported as part of their application. This can happen: immigration authorities force the applicant to leave before approving their visa and letting them back into the country legally. It obviously is a clunky system (one that could prevent the person from having the means or resources to properly communicate with U.S. immigration authorities over their visa application).

However, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services is trying to make this process more streamlined for undocumented family members of U.S. military members. They will waive this deportation through a process called "parole in place" for spouses, children or parents who are undocumented and related to a U.S. military member.
