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 Brown Immigration Law 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 Brown Immigration Law today and speak with an attorney regarding your situation.
