Temporary Protected Status (TPS) Through USCIS

West New York Firm Helps Clients Seek Temporary Protected Status

New Jersey attorney represents immigrants from troubled countries

When the conditions in someone’s home country are dangerous due to a war, an environmental problem or some other factor, people from those lands who are in the United States can seek temporary protection. At Winograd and Schwartz, Attorneys at Law, P.C. in West New York, we help clients from Honduras, El Salvador and other countries identified by the Department of Homeland Security avoid removal when a serious risk exists. Attorney Laraine Schwartz has more than 30 years of experience helping individuals and families establish a safe home in the United States. She and the staff at our firm work hard in cases before the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) so that clients can achieve temporary protected status (TPS) within this country.

Skilled Hudson County advocate handles USCIS filings and hearings

We provide effective assistance to people who are citizens of designated TPS countries and who wish to remain in the United States. For Spanish- and English-speaking clients, our firm handles key tasks, such as:

  • Filing for protected status — If your native country is on the TPS list and you satisfy time and background standards, we will prepare Form I-821 and other documents you need to pursue protection under this program.
  • Representation before the USCIS — Interviews and hearings before U.S. authorities can be intimidating, especially if you are not familiar with the procedures. Our firm handles communications with immigration officials and makes the strongest possible case on your behalf.
  • Obtaining an Employment Authorization Document — TPS applicants and recipients are eligible to work legally in the United States. As part of our representation, we can help you get an Employment Authorization Document so that you can earn a living while residing in America.
  • Appealing a TPS denial — Our firm will file a Notice of Appeal if you believe you have been wrongly rejected in your application for temporary protection.

For these matters and other immigration cases, we deliver strong advice and advocacy so that you or your family member has the best chance to take advantage of the opportunities in the United States.
