Thread: TPS EWI filing I-130

  1. #1
    Wondering if filing I-130 nullifies a TPS??? As long as the EWI remains in US are they okay with TPS? Unless, of course, they travel out of US with Advance Parol. Is filing an I-130 damaging to a TPS holder in any way?

    I've heard what you are saying before, but can't find it in the regs (below). Where does your opinion come from?

    Title 8: Aliens and Nationality
    PART 244"”TEMPORARY PROTECTED STATUS FOR NATIONALS OF DESIGNATED STATES


    Browse Previous | Browse Next


    § 244.14 Withdrawal of Temporary Protected Status.
    (a) Authority of director. The director may withdraw the status of an alien granted Temporary Protected Status under section 244 of the Act at any time upon the occurrence of any of the following:

    (1) The alien was not in fact eligible at the time such status was granted, or at any time thereafter becomes ineligible for such status;

    (2) The alien has not remained continuously physically present in the United States from the date the alien was first granted Temporary Protected Status under this part. For the purpose of this provision, an alien granted Temporary Protected Status under this part shall be deemed not to have failed to maintain continuous physical presence in the United States if the alien departs the United States after first obtaining permission from the district director to travel pursuant to §244.15;

    (3) The alien fails without good cause to register with the Attorney General annually within thirty (30) days before the end of each 12-month period after the granting of Temporary Protected Status.

    (b) Decision by director. (1) Withdrawal of an alien's status under paragraph (a) of this section shall be in writing and served by personal service pursuant to §103.5(a) of this chapter. If the ground for withdrawal is §240.14(a)(3), the notice shall provide that the alien has thirty (30) days within which to provide evidence of good cause for failure to register. If the alien fails to respond within thirty (30) days, Temporary Protected Status shall be withdrawn without further notice.

    (2) Withdrawal of the alien's Temporary Protected Status under paragraph (b)(1) of this section may subject the applicant to exclusion or deportation proceedings under sections 235, 236, 237, 238, 240, or 241 of the Act as appropriate.

    (3) If the basis for the withdrawal of Temporary Protected Status constitutes a ground of deportability or excludability which renders an alien ineligible for Temporary Protected Status under §244.4 or inadmissible under §244.3(c), the decision shall include a charging document which sets forth such ground(s) with notice of the right of a de novo determination of eligibility for Temporary Protected Status in deportation or exclusion proceedings. If the basis for withdrawal does not constitute such a ground, the alien shall be given written notice of his or her right to appeal to the AAU. Upon receipt of an appeal, the administrative record will be forwarded to the AAU for review and decision pursuant to the authority delegated under §103.1(f)(2). Temporary Protected Status benefits will be extended during the pendency of an appeal.

    (c) Decision by AAU. If a decision to withdraw Temporary Protected Status is entered by the AAU, the AAU shall notify the alien of the decision and the right to a de novo determination of eligibility for Temporary Protected Status in deportation or exclusion proceedings, if the alien is then deportable or excludable, as provided by §244.10(d).

    What if no 485 AOS filed? Just the I-130 and no further action.

    MLAW: I have the same situation, I am under TPS and EWI - My husband is an USC my lawyer suggested me to file I-130 however I just don't think my lawyer had to much experience with TPS, so I haven't filed it because I am afraid it will cancel my current status.
    I have heard so many points of view that I don't know what to do; some people say:
    *File I-130 to let them know you are married to an USC
    *DON'T file since it could cancel TPS (davdah said)
    *I-130 is part of a package to READJUST and since I EWI - I CANNOT
    *Wait until they change the law (God only knows if that's ever going to happen)
    *Since you have a legal status (SS & WA) what difference is going to make.
    *Unless you are willing to leave US soil and let your spouse file waivers, which takes at least 1 year (I am not willing to leave USA soil-so that's not an option for me)

    Filing an I-130 is not an act that the TPS holder takes. It is taken by a USC or LPR petitioner seeking benefits for their family member, who happens to be TPS. What of that?
