Thank you for your interest in our new lawsuit challenging USCIS’ unlawful requirement that Ukrainian humanitarian parole recipients must apply for work authorization through the filing of a Form I-765, application for employment authorization. Congress intended Ukrainian humanitarian parolees to receive work authorization “incident to status,” meaning as soon as they are granted status and arrive in the country. Moreover, any application for issuance of an employment authorization document or (“EAD”) should be free of charge. Our lawsuit seeks to ensure USCIS applies the letter of the law so Ukrainian parolees can work without further delay and without having to pay a fee.
The sign-up deadline is August 12 2022 at 12:00 pm Central. Our intention is to file the case a week after that.
If you are interested in participating, please do the following
STEP 1 – Read the FAQ and make sure you understand what the case is about, what we hope to accomplish, and who is likely to benefit from the case and who is not.
STEP 2 – Complete our engagement letter generator app. It will allow you to download the engagement letter for your records at the end and automatically send the signed agreement to us.
STEP 3 – Create a declaration describing your situation and why you are suing. You can create this using our Litigation Declaration Builder app.
Once you have done each of these things, we’ll review and make sure you’re eligible for the case. We’ll let you know if there is a problem, but if you hear nothing from us, assume you’re okay. We will send out an email automatically after you complete the engagement letter confirming you are a plaintiff in the case. We will send out a letter before we file confirming we have everything we need (or asking for anything we’re missing) and we’ll send out an additional notification once we file the lawsuit.
Please note we will provide you a link to update us on your case moving forward.
We are looking forward to fighting on your behalf.
