Cahill Associates Team with the Legal Aid Society to Provide Temporary Protected Status to Haitian Nationals
Cahill Associates are teaming up with the Legal Aid Society to staff special clinics and hotlines to assist Haitian nationals in applying for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) after the devastating earthquake in Haiti on January 12th. The Legal Aid Society has been identified by New York City as one of the key organizations to assist eligible Haitian immigrants in receiving TPS. The clinics and hotlines are designed to provide information on basic eligibility and filing of TPS applications, answer questions related to pending immigration applications that may be expedited and advise Haitians who want to file Petitions for immediate relatives still in Haiti.
The Obama administration designated TPS to Haitian nationals the day after the earthquake, temporarily suspending the deportation of illegal immigrants and permitting them to stay and work in the U.S. for a limited period of 12 to 18 months.
