Ohio Temporary Protected Status Lawyer
Does your country qualify?
Temporary protected status (TPS) is granted to individuals from countries
that have been determined unsafe by the secretary of Homeland Security.
These countries may be experiencing economic hardship, warfare, or other
unrest that may make it difficult for their citizens to return safely.
The countries that are currently designated for TPS may change in the
future, being added or removed as necessary. Temporary protection status
is granted to the following countries:
- Sudan and South Sudan
- El Salvador
If you are a citizen of any of the listed countries and are currently visiting
or residing within the United States while seeking temporary protected
status, then it is important that you contact an
Ohio immigration attorney from Robert Brown LLC today to speak with us regarding your particular
situation. Being granted TPS can help you obtain
employment authorization within the States and protect you from removal. TPS can also help you
receive travel authorization. You will also still need to apply for a
non-immigrant visa and file for
adjustment of status.
Will I need a lawyer?
Because of the sensitive nature of the immigration process and the strict
rules and regulations pertaining to the temporary protection status, it
may be in your best interest to work with an attorney during the process.
Applicants looking to receive TPS will not necessarily automatically receive
asylum or refugee status but will be held in the United States without
fear of removal. If you are looking to seek
asylum or refugee status, you may be able to work with an lawyer to obtain the necessary applications
as well. If you have questions and are wondering if you are eligible to
receive temporary protected status, then it is important that you
contact Robert Brown LLC today and speak with an attorney regarding your situation.
