Advance Parole Attorney in Fort Myers

Travel Outside the U.S. with Advanced Parole

If you have temporary protected status, you may be eligible to travel outside of the United States through advance parole.

While applying for advance parole, you must show that your travel outside of the United States will be for:

  • Educational purposes, such as a semester studying abroad
  • Employment purposes, such as an overseas conference, training or meeting
  • Humanitarian purposes, such as travel to attend a funeral for a family member, visit an ailing relative, or obtain medical treatment

Remember: If you travel outside the United States without first receiving advance parole, USCIS will automatically terminate your deferred action. You must first apply for advance parole and be approved before exiting the United States. Travel for vacation is not a valid purpose.

If you need assistance seeking advance parole, Hurtado Immigration Law Firm can help. Our Fort Myers advanced parole lawyer has helped many clients obtain advance parole so that they can travel outside the U.S.

Benefits of Advance Parole

Advance parole may be able to help your immigration case in other ways. Once you have returned to the United States under a grant of advance parole, you would be inspected by an immigration officer and as such, have a valid entry into the U.S.

With this, it may allow you to be eligible for adjustment of status in the United States. This can help individuals who are DACA recipients and TPS holders as well looking to get an adjustment of status.

What Is an Adjustment of Status Through Advance Parole?

If you have an immediate relative who is a United States citizen – such as a spouse or a child over 21 – who can petition for you, and you entered with an advanced parole document, you may be eligible to apply for your legal permanent residency (your green card) here in the United States.

Requirements for Advance Parole

You may apply for an Advance Parole in the United States if you:

  • Have a pending adjustment of status (Form I-485)
  • Were admitted as a refugee or have asylum status
  • Have a pending asylum application
  • Were granted Temporary Protected Status
  • Have a specific or emergent reason to travel abroad

You are not eligible for Advance Parole if you are in the country without a valid status, subject to removal proceedings, or you have a reentry permit or refugee travel document. Additionally, non-immigrant exchange visitors subject to a foreign residence requirement are ineligible for Advance Parole.

Warning

Even if you have TPS, negative immigration history – such as an order of removal or recent criminal activity (including many misdemeanors) – may make you inadmissible into the United States even with advance parole. It is important to conduct a full consultation with an experienced attorney before applying for advance parole and exiting the United States
