Due to the disastrous earthquake that has devastated Haiti, the U.S. has implemented TPS (Temporary Protected Status) for Haitian nationals that were in the U.S. as of January 12, 2010. In order to assist Haitians with the necessary documentation for TPS registration and work authorization as quickly as possible, the immigration law firm of Colombo, Hurd & Brandt is offering free consultations as well as scheduling educational forums throughout the State of Florida.
Online PR News – 19-January-2010 – – The Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano stated "This (TPS) designation will allow eligible Haitian nationals in the United States to continue living and working in our country for the next 18 months. Those who attempt to travel to the United States after January 12, 2010 will not be eligible for TPS and will be repatriated."
Those Haitian nationals wishing to take advantage of TPS designation must register within the 180 day registration period and meet certain immigration requirements. In order to meet the huge need for assistance to Haitians, to answer questions and to provide accurate information to as many as possible, Colombo, Hurd & Brandt is available with native speaking staff that can communicate proficiently in Creole and English..
