MPP Additional Resources

The following is a list of important resources for individuals enrolled in the MPP program and their legal representatives.

Individuals can access case status information as long as they know their A-number (the nine-digit number that begins with the letter “A” and is found in the upper right-hand corner of the Notice to Appear and other immigration-related documentation). Case information can be accessed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week via EOIR’s Automated Case Information Portal or at 1-800-898-7180 (toll-free).

If you have questions about the immigration court process, please contact the Immigration Court Helpdesk at any of the following locations:

For printable and shareable versions of this information, please see the flyer in English, Spanish, and Portuguese.

If you are in removal proceedings, you need to ensure that your address is up to date with the immigration court. Every time you move residences, you must update your address by submitting an EOIR-33, Change of Address Form (by mail or in person) to the court location where your case is currently scheduled. You can also submit the form online through EOIR’s website.

For individuals searching for legal assistance, EOIR publishes a List of Pro Bono Legal Service Providers corresponding to each court location.

If you are not represented by counsel or need additional resources, you can access resources on EOIR's Self-Help Materials website, including information on the topics listed below:

  • Accessing an Attorney
  • Appeal
  • Asylum
  • Bond
  • Change of Address and Change of Venue
  • EOIR Self- Help Legal Centers
  • Fraud
  • Missed Hearings
  • Notice to Appear
  • Self-Help Guides to Immigration Removal, Proceedings and Common Forms of Relief
  • T-Visa
  • U-Visa
  • Voluntary Departure

If you believe you should not have been enrolled in MPP because you have a particular vulnerability (such as a known physical or mental health issue, including a disability or medical condition; advanced age; or increased risk of harm in Mexico due to sexual orientation or gender identity), please visit the following website: https://engage.dhs.gov/mpp.


If your circumstances have changed significantly since you were first placed in MPP and you believe you should now be taken out of MPP, please visit the following website: https://engage.dhs.gov/mpp with this information. Please note that the review of your request is at DHS’s discretion. Submitting a disenrollment request does not create any private right of action enforceable in judicial or administrative proceedings.


Your request should include specific and detailed information about why you believe your enrollment into MPP is clearly incorrect or how your circumstances have changed since your initial placement in MPP. In addition, please attach any available documents that help support your request.
