What is Temporary Protected Status?

Temporary Protected Status (TPS) is a temporary immigration status provided to nationals whose country is experiencing an environmental disaster, ongoing armed conflict, or other extraordinary and temporary conditions.

TPS allows individuals to live and work in the United States for a set period of time without fear of deportation. This status does not lead directly to permanent residency, but it provides crucial safety and stability for those who cannot safely return to their home country due to the conditions it faces.

Who Is Eligible For Temporary Protected Status (TPS) - D'Alessio Law Group

Eligibility Criteria for TPS

The eligibility criteria for TPS can vary depending on the designated country’s conditions and U.S. immigration policies. Generally, applicants must prove they are:

Navigating these criteria can be overwhelming, but D’Alessio Law Group simplifies the process. Our team of experts assists clients in understanding eligibility, gathering necessary documentation, and ensuring all criteria are met with precision.

The TPS Application Process

The TPS application process involves meticulous documentation and precise timing. To begin, applicants must complete Form I-821, Application for Temporary Protected Status, and, if they wish to work legally in the U.S. during their stay, Form I-765, Application for Employment Authorization. Additionally, applicants must submit evidence of their nationality, proof of residence in the U.S. since the designated date, and any other documentation supporting their eligibility for TPS.

Fees associated with the application process can vary, including costs for filing forms and biometric services. However, fee waivers may be available for those who cannot afford these expenses.

Once the application package is prepared, it should be submitted to the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) before the registration period closes. It’s important to note that deadlines are firm, and missing a deadline can result in denial of protected status.

After submission, applicants may be required to attend a biometrics appointment, where fingerprints and photographs are taken for security purposes, or an interview. USCIS then reviews each application on a case-by-case basis, considering all provided documentation and the current conditions in the applicant’s home country.

The entire process requires attention to detail and an understanding of the legal intricacies involved. D’Alessio Law Group stands ready to provide expert guidance every step, ensuring applicants have the best possible chance of achieving Temporary Protected Status.

In order to maintain your TPS, it's important to keep up with all registration and re-registration requirements. These may include submitting updated documentation or fees, or adhering to specific deadlines.

Tips for Maintaining TPS and Navigating the U.S. Immigration System

TPS holders should keep informed about the conditions of their home country and any changes to the TPS program, as these can impact their protected status. It’s also important to thoroughly understand the U.S. immigration system and stay up-to-date on any changes or updates that may affect your case.
D’Alessio Law Group offers strategic advice and representation, helping clients maintain their status and explore pathways toward more permanent solutions, such as adjustment of status under specific circumstances.

Temporary Protected Status to Green Card

While Temporary Protected Status (TPS) does not provide a direct path to permanent residency, certain TPS holders may become eligible for a green card under specific conditions—officially known as Lawful Permanent Resident Status.

Transitioning from TPS to a green card generally involves adjusting status through family-based or employment-based petitions. 

For instance, if a TPS recipient has a family member who is a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident, they can potentially be a beneficiary of a green card petition. 

Alternatively, a TPS holder can obtain an offer of employment from a U.S. employer who is willing to sponsor them. In either of these cases, they may be able to adjust their status.

TPS holders must seek competent legal advice to explore these options, as the process is complex and requires thorough preparation and adherence to immigration laws and procedures. D’Alessio Law Group can provide the necessary guidance to evaluate and act upon potential opportunities for achieving permanent residency in the United States.
