While temporary protected status might not be a final solution to your immigration matter, TPS allows you to live and work legally in the United States. Additionally, TPS will likely end removal proceedings and prevent deportation in the future. It is always wise, however, to consult with a knowledgeable attorney to discuss your unique situation. Based on your country of origin, we can provide clear advice regarding your next steps. Schedule a consultation at our firm today.

Victims of Crime — U Visas

If you have been a victim of crime and can provide assistance to law enforcement officers, it is possible to receive a U visa. The U visa is a nonimmigrant visa that gives victims of certain crimes temporary legal status and work eligibility in the United States. This temporary status typically lasts for up to four years.
