While Temporary Protected Status (TPS) is set to end for several nationalities and federal court litigation is ongoing, many clients are wondering what their status will be and whether they are eligible to change, extend, or adjust to another nonimmigrant status or to permanent residence. Our panel of experts will help navigate through the sea of possibilities and challenges for TPS beneficiaries, including complexities such as travel and re-entry with advance parole, final orders of removal, and administratively closed removal proceedings.


Featured Topics

  • After TPS Ends, What Is My Client’s Status?
  • What Options Are Available for TPS Clients Who Have a Final Order of Removal?
  • How Does Re-Entry on Advance Parole Affect a TPS Beneficiary’s Ability to Adjust Status Under INA §245(a), Limitations on Adjustment of Status Under INA §245(c) and INA §245(k), and Jurisdiction If the Client Is in Administratively Closed Removal Proceedings?
  • Can My TPS Client File for Asylum? What About the One-Year Rule?
  • How Can I Help My Client Change to a New Status or Extend a Previously Held Nonimmigrant Visa Status?

Free Downloadable Seminar Recording Included with Live Registration Included with registration, participants in the live seminar will receive a free downloadable recording of the seminar. It will be available in participant's Agora Digital Library approximately 4-7 business days from the seminar date. Order Recordings
