Houston Temporary Protected Status (TPS) Attorneys

Dedicated Legal Help to Those Seeking Immigration Relief

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has the authority to designate other countries for what is called Temporary Protected Status (TPS). This status is given when a foreign country’s conditions impede the safe return of its people. This gives safety to those individuals who are already residing within our borders when conditions arise in their home country that make their deportation or return home dangerous or untenable. This protection can also be granted to eligible persons without nationality who last resided in the designated country.

If you are an individual who needs help obtaining protected status under this immigration benefit, we urge you to turn to Sebastian Simon Law Group, PLLC. We have helped countless individuals obtain TPS status under the Immigration Act of 1990. Our experienced legal team is well-versed in immigration law, the procedures, and the requirements for obtaining immigration relief. We understand what you are facing and the often-overwhelming task of visa and other immigration benefit applications. Our firm can walk you through the process and oversee it from start to finish.

Need temporary protected status? Call Sebastian Simon Law Group, PLLC at (713) 839-0639 or (332) 330-9442 for a consultation or contact us online.

What Is Temporary Protected Status

TPS is a type of temporary immigration benefit that is given to foreign nationals of certain countries facing such internally dangerous conditions as armed conflict, natural disasters, or other untenable problems. If you are a citizen of one of these designated countries, TPS approval provides you with a work permit and protection from removal from the U.S. for as long as your home country remains under TPS authority by the DHS. TPS designations by DHS can remain for months, years, or indefinitely; these designations are automatically renewed unless a termination decision is made in advance by the DHS.

Conditions that can put a country on the TPS list include civil wars, other types of violent conflict, earthquakes, hurricanes, disease epidemics, and other conditions that pose a major threat to the safety of any of its citizens who need to return. Currently, countries who are designated under TPS include Venezuela, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Honduras, Haiti, Nepal, Sudan, Syria, Somalia, South Sudan, Burma, and Yemen. Venezuela’s status is currently valid until September 9, 2022. After that, it may be automatically renewed or terminated depending on DHS decision.

Eligibility requirements include:

  • You are a citizen of the designated country or, if without citizenship, you last habitually lived there
  • You have continuously been in the U.S. since your home country was designated
  • You are eligible to be admissible to the U.S. and are not barred from asylum due to criminal or national security reasons

TPS is not an automatic benefit. You must register for this benefit during a designated registration timeframe and pay appropriate fees. Application is done on Form I-821, Application for Temporary Protected Status, which includes the requirement of providing certain evidence and supporting documentation.
