You can try to change your status

Sèvis imigrasyon ak sitwayènte AMERIKÈN (USCIS) te di: "TPS se yon benefis tanporè ki pa mennen a legal estati rezidan pèmanan oswa bay lòt estati imigrasyon. Sepandan, enskripsyon pou TPS pa ' anpeche ou soti:

The US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) says: “TPS is a temporary benefit that does not lead to lawful permanent resident status or give any other immigration status. However, registration for TPS does not prevent you from:

  • Ap aplike pou estati ki pa imigran
  • Ranpli pou ajiste stati baze sou yon petisyon imigran
  • Ap aplike pou yon lòt benefis imigrasyon osinon yon pwoteksyon pou ou ka elijib"
  • Applying for non-immigrant status
  • Filing for adjustment of status based on an immigrant petition
  • Applying for any other immigration benefit or protection for which you may be eligible”

Ap aplike pou estati ki pa imigran

Applying for non-immigrant status

Menm si TPS konsidere kòm yon kalifikasyon pou ajiste stati, ou dwe gen dwa pou aplike. Ou ka aplike pou yon kat green si ou te rantre legalman ak ranpli kondisyon lòt. Sa ka fè paske fanmi ou oswa travay ou. Chèche konnen kijan pou aplike pou sitwayènte.

Even if TPS is considered a qualification to adjust status, you must be eligible to apply. You may apply for a green card if you entered lawfully and meet other requirements. These may be because of your family or your job. Find out how to apply for citizenship.

Aplike pou azil

Applying for asylum

Chak lanne moun vin jwenn nan Etazini ap chache pwoteksyon paske yo te soufri pèsekisyon oswa pè sa yo pral soufri pèsekisyon pou tèt:

Every year people come to the United States seeking protection because they have suffered persecution or fear that they will suffer persecution due to:

  • Fè kous
  • Relijyon
  • Nasyonalite
  • Manb nan yon gwoup sosyal patikilye
  • Opinyon politik
  • Race
  • Religion
  • Nationality
  • Membership in a particular social group
  • Political opinion

Titulaires TPS ka aplike pou estati azil politik, sitou si yo te isit la nan yon ane oswa mwens. Si ou te vini isit la pou mwens pase yon ane, ou ta dwe APLIKE KOULYE A. Sepandan, sa enpòtan anpil pou w konnen USCIS la depi kèk tan te chanje jan aplikasyon pou azil politik ki trete. Kounye-a, yo ap repase yo ki pi resan aplikasyon pou premye. Yon sèl fwa ou soumèt yon fòmilè aplikasyon pou azil politik, li te ka yon menm ti tan anvan ou ka tande. Se konsa, ou ki pi sèl aplike pou azil politik si ou kalifye paske san sa ou pran/seye chans gen ou ka tande e lè sa a se pou yo depòte li. Ou ka ranpli nan fòm pou aplike pou azil politik (se yon fòmilè ki legal epi li ta pi bon si ou pa gen yon avoka pou ede w ranpli fòm). Si nou te genyen nan fi a. plis pase yon ane, ou toujou ka aplike pou azil politik men y' ap pi difisil (e li difisil deja pou genyen yon ka azil politik). Pou jwenn plis osijè de kijan pou aplike pou azil politik. Si ou deside pou aplike pou azil politik, ou ta dwe eseye pou jwenn yon pwogram-bono (avoka ba konbinazon oswa ki gratis) pou ede w. Ou ka jwenn pou yon pwogram-bono oswa a pri ki ba avoka sou ImmigrationLawHelp.com oubyen sou a Anyè legal KLINIK.

TPS holders can apply for asylum status, especially if they have been here a year or less. If you have been here for less than a year, you should APPLY NOW. However, it is very important that you know the USCIS has recently changed how asylum applications are processed. Now, they are reviewing the most recent applications first. Once you submit an application for asylum, it might be a very short time before your case is heard. So, you most only apply for asylum if you do qualify because otherwise you risk having your case heard and then being deported. You can fill in the form to apply for asylum (this is a legal form and it would be best if you had a lawyer to help you complete the form). If you have been in the U.S. more than one year, you can still apply for asylum but it will be more difficult (and it is already hard to win an asylum case). Find out more about how to apply for asylum. If you do decide to apply for asylum, you should try to find a pro-bono (low cost or free attorney) to help you. You can search for a pro-bono or low-cost lawyer on ImmigrationLawHelp.com or on the CLINIC legal directory.

Ap aplike pou estati pwoteksyon lòt

Applying for other protected status

Titulaires TPS kèk ka rete nan Etazini sou viza espesyal. Genyen viza pou moun ki viktim nan trafik imen, ank battue, timoun oubyen paran yo ak lòt kalite krim viktim. Si ou se yon fanm epi ou kwè ou ta ka kalifye pou yon viza espesyal paske vyolans, abi oubyen yon lòt rezon, ou ka kontakte a Asile azil politik defans pwojè.

Some TPS holders may stay in the United States under special visas. There are visas for victims of human trafficking, battered spouses, children or parents and victims of other crimes. If you are a woman and think you might qualify for a special visa because of violence, abuse or another reason, you can contact the Asylum Seeker Advocacy Project.

Si ou te rantre san dokiman

If you entered without documents

En sou kote ou rete, ou ka anmezi pou aplike pou chanjman nan stati menm si ou te rantre Ozetazini san documents. Sa se paske-l genyen TPS konte kòm admisyon nan kèk pati nan Etazini.

Depending on where you live, you may be able to apply for change of status even if you entered the United States without paperwork. This is because gaining TPS counts as admission in some parts of the United States.

Èske mwen ka mande m' travay pou finanse m?

Can I ask my work to sponsor me?

Anplwayè ou pou ede ou rete ke yo nan Etazini finanse ou ka. Anplwayè gen pou yo pase nan mitan yon pwosè lontan ak USCIS. Selon ki kalite travay ou fè, Anplwayè ka elijib pou resevwa yon viza espesyal oubyen pou pat pèmèt. Si yo vle pou ede w, yo ta dwe kòmanse pwosesis la koulye a pou chèche konnen si ou kalifye. Anplwayè ka jwenn plis enfòmasyon nan USCIS. Sepandan, nòmalman sèl imigran ki pa trè kalifye yo ka jwenn anplwayè ki ap finanse yo. Te gen ladan tou pou doktè, enjenyè, ak teknoloji travayè. Si w ap travay nan yon baz oswa antre kiyè travay, pa mande anplwayè opsyon sa a.

It is possible for your employer to help you stay lawfully in the United States by sponsoring you. Your employer will have to go through a long process with USCIS. Depending on the kind of work you do, your employer may be able to get you a special visa or permit. If they want to help you, they should start the process now to find out if you are eligible. Employers can find more information from USCIS. However, normally only immigrants who are highly skilled are able to find employers who will sponsor them. These might include doctors, engineers, and tech workers. If you work at a basic or entry level job, do not ask your employer for this option.
