    Out-of-Status: Out of Status means that the person has violated the terms of ‘Lawful Status’ in some way. Because each visa or status comes with a set of rights and activities, a person can find themselves “out-of-status” by doing something like working without authorization, or overstaying their stay for example.

    Unlawful presence means presence in the U.S. after the expiration of the period of stay authorized at the time of entry and also includes presence in the U.S. when a person enters the US without being inspected and admitted or paroled.
