Helping New Orleans Residents Through Complex Immigration Matters

Temporary Protective Status (TPS) is a designated period of time where immigrants are eligible to legally reside in the United States without fear of removal for two years. If you are already residing in the United States, you may be eligible for TPS status because of a:

  • Civil war or other armed conflict
  • Earthquake, hurricane, epidemic or other environmental disaster

Dedication. Diligence. Attention To Detail In TPS Proceedings.

At the Immigration & Nationality Law Group in New Orleans, we help our clients through the process of TPS. We attend to every detail, identifying their current citizenship status, filing requirements and residency on the date TPS was granted for a particular country.

Qualifications include:

  • Residing in the United States when home country was designated for TPS
  • No felony criminal history
  • Consistent employment and residency (through leases, hotel bills or utility bills)
  • Staying within the United States and not going back to your country of origin or anywhere else

While TPS is in effect, the following applies:

  • No removal from the United States
  • Secure an employment authorization document (EAD)
  • Possible granting of travel authorization

Kristie L. Bowerman, our solo attorney, provides personalized representation. She educates clients on the immigration process and answers any questions. For many of our clients, a TPS issue is their first exposure to an attorney. She helps them understand the attorney-client privilege and the importance of confidentiality. Earning their trust and confidence is paramount.
