Temporary Protected Status (TPS)

Created by the Immigration Act of 1990, TPS is a temporary immigration status granted to foreign nationals facing extraordinary and temporary conditions. Each country has its own set of rules and regulations for TPS. At Shuler Killen we specialize in navigating the complexities of TPS cases. Allow us to assist you in determining your eligibility for temporary protected status. Reach out to us, and we’ll guide you through the process with clarity and expertise.

Immigration for Crime Victims

If you or a loved one has been a victim of crime, there are two visa programs that offer a pathway to green cards for victims and their family members. The T visa is designed for those brought into the United States through human trafficking, while the U visa is available to victims of various crimes such as abduction, kidnapping, or domestic violence. In our local community, the majority of U visa applicants have experienced domestic violence or assault.

At Shuler Killen, we specialize in simplifying your options and guiding you through the application process for the visa that aligns best with your unique situation. Our team brings clarity to the complexities of T and U visas, ensuring that you understand your rights and opportunities as a victim of crime.
