Temporary Protected Status (TPS)

Assistance With TPS Applications & Renewals in Carrollton

Temporary protected status (TPS) is a temporary immigration status available to eligible nationals of specific countries. This process can be complex and confusing, so it can be helpful to have the guidance of a Carrollton attorney standing by your side. At Christensen P.C., we have helped clients from many different countries apply for temporary protected status and other immigration benefits.

If you have questions or need help applying for or renewing your TPS, call (972) 497-1017 to learn how we can help.

Countries Designated for TPS

The United States government applies the temporary protected status to a country based on conditions that prevent nationals from safely returning or when the country is unable to adequately handle the return of its citizens. The conditions may include armed conflict, environmental disaster, and other temporary and extraordinary conditions.

The countries currently designated for TPS include:

  • El Salvador
  • Haiti
  • Honduras
  • Nepal
  • Nicaragua
  • Somalia
  • South Sudan
  • Sudan
  • Syria
  • Yemen

TPS may be granted to eligible foreign nationals already in the United State and beneficiaries and those found preliminarily eligible are not removable from the U.S. The individual may obtain an employment authorization document (EAD) and be granted authorization for travel. Although this is a temporary benefit and will not lead to lawful permanent resident status, TPS beneficiaries are not prevented from applying for nonimmigrant status, filing for adjustment of status, or applying for any other immigration benefit.

Contact Nathan Christensen P.C. at (972) 497-1017 to determine your eligibility for TPS or seek guidance through the application or renewal process.

Determining Eligibility for TPS

In order to be eligible, the person must be a national or resident of a TPS designated country and file during the designation period. In addition, you must have been continuously physically present and continuously residing in the United States since the most recent designation date for your country. After TPS is granted, it needs to be renewed every other year.

A TPS applicant or beneficiary may be ineligible or lose eligibility for felony convictions, two or more misdemeanor convictions, failure to meet other eligibility requirements, or due to any of the mandatory bars to asylum, such as engaging or inciting terrorist activity or persecution of another individual. The best way to determine eligibility for TPS is to consult with an immigration lawyer in Carrollton.
