The New Americans Center (NAC) provides free immigration law services to Kingsborough Community College students, staff, and the Brooklyn community.
The Center has an on-site attorney, paralegal and legal assistants with training and expertise in immigration law. The staff provides legal information and guidance and assists with the processing of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival, Citizenship, and Green Card applications. Individual legal consultations can be scheduled to determine eligibility for immigration benefits and to provide guidance and referrals for more complex immigration matters.

Renewals of Temporary Protected Status (TPS)

RENEWAL OF TEMPORARY PROTECTED STATUS (TPS) FOR HAITIANS
TPS for Haitians was extended to July 22, 2014. All TPS recipients who qualify for re-registration must do so by November 30, 2012 in order to be considered for the extension. The extension also suspends the requirements for F-1 nonimmigrant Haitian students.
To re-register for TPS, call the Center at (718) 368-5600 or stop by
V-125 to make an appointment before Nov. 15.
The extension allows TPS re-registrants to apply for a new Employment Authorization Document (EAD). Eligible Haitian TPS beneficiaries who timely re-register will receive a new EAD with an expiration date of July 22, 2014. Since all re-registrants may not receive their new EADs until after their current EADs expire, USCIS is extending currently valid EADs bearing a Jan. 22, 2013 expiration date through July 22, 2013.
The extension will also enable F-1 nonimmigrant Haitian students to continue to obtain employment authorization, work an increased number of hours while school is in session, and reduce their course load, while maintaining their F-1 student status through July 22, 2014.
