CHICAGO TEMPORARY PROTECTED STATUS IMMIGRATION LAWYERS
Temporary protected status (TPS) is a non-immigrant temporary immigration status granted by the U.S. government, to foreign nationals whose country’s conditions are unsafe for them to return or unable to handle the return of their citizens. As the name suggests, TPS provides only temporary protection and it does not lead to a path to U.S. residency or citizenship. However, TPS does not prevent you from becoming a lawful U.S. resident via other means such as asylum, marriage with U.S. citizens, employment visa/green card or other qualified immigration benefits.
