Am I eligible to re-apply for TPS?

Asked over 1 year ago - New York, NY

In 2010, as a citizen of Haiti, I had initially filed for and was granted Temporary Protected Status. However, owing to reasons that pertain to personal hardship, I had failed to re-register last year. Now that a new re-registration period is pending, I am wondering whether or not I can re-apply. If possible, what steps could a lawyer help me take to successfully re-register?
