Having a criminal record, or living in another country before coming to the U.S. may make a noncitizen from a TPS-designated country ineligible for TPS protection. Join us to learn more about the issues that can complicate a TPS application, especially for Haitian applicants, as well as best practices in overcoming these issues to obtain TPS for pro bono clients. This training will be offered free of charge. CLE credit will be available to attendees of the live training. A recorded version of this training will be available on a later date.  ​
