In the complex landscape of immigration, certain situations call for compassionate and urgent solutions. Temporary Protected Status (TPS) stands as a critical form of humanitarian relief designed to shield individuals from countries facing challenging conditions. At Noyes & Associates, we comprehend the intricacies of immigration law and are dedicated to guiding TPS matters.

Understanding Temporary Protected Status (TPS):

TPS is a form of temporary immigration relief granted to individuals from countries dealing with ongoing armed conflict, environmental disasters, or other extraordinary conditions that make it unsafe for nationals to return. This designation allows eligible individuals to remain in the United States and obtain work authorization for a specified period.

Eligibility Criteria for TPS:

To qualify for TPS, individuals must meet specific criteria, including:

1. Nationality: You must be a national of a country designated for TPS.

2. Continuous Physical Presence: Continuous physical presence in the U.S. since the specified TPS designation date.

3. Continuous Residence: Continuous residence in the U.S. since a particular date, usually the date of the country's TPS designation.

4. No Felony Convictions: No felony convictions or two or more misdemeanor convictions in the U.S.

Application Process for TPS:

Obtaining TPS involves filing the necessary forms, supporting documentation, and paying the required fees. It's crucial to stay informed about designated countries, filing deadlines, and any changes in immigration policies.

Benefits of TPS:

1. Protection from Deportation: TPS protects against deportation, allowing individuals to reside and work legally in the U.S.

2. Work Authorization: TPS recipients are eligible to obtain employment authorization, enabling them to support themselves and their families.
