Asylum, TPS

TPS seekers beware of out-of-status before and after TPS


Hello TPS seekers,

MIA has been getting requests for information regarding the expiration of current status before the approval of TPS. Please be aware that TPS is like a limited asylum. Once TPS ends, a person should return to the immigration status that he or she held prior to being granted TPS. Before TPS begins, one should have another immigration status to cover your time in the U.S. If you become out-of-status before being granted TPS, you may return to out-of-status upon expiration of TPS.For those planning on returning to your home country as soon as the peril has subsided, this may not be a problem. For those of you planning on seeking a longer stay in the U.S., please beware.

Recall, however, that one may apply for another immigration benefit while registered for TPS. TPS does not appear to prevent you from applying for nonimmigrant status, filing an adjustment of status application, or applying for any other immigration benefit or protection. Notwithstanding, if you fall out of status before being granted TPS, you may be ineligible to adjust status.

For these reasons, we highly recommend that you investigate your options for other nonimmigrant and immigrant visas or applications that may cover your time before and after TPS status.

Most immigration attorneys will provide an initial consultation for free or at a nominal cost. Please contact MIA if you have any questions.

Best of luck.
