Asked 9 months ago - Los Angeles, CA

We are from Syria and we filed in the beginning of August for TPS,and after the fingerprints were taking right after that,we haven't really heard anything about our case yet , I check the case online daily but still no update yet ! and even the USCIS website isn't clear about TPS timeline ..How long does it really take from your experience as immigration attorneys ? whats the process of TPS case,should we get something by mail or call them or go for an appointment with which office ? thank you

    Answered . Very few applications take less than 3 months to be adjudicated. 3 months has not passed on your case, and you should remain more patient. You may try calling USCIS and see if they have a processing time to provide you on this type of case.

    Good luck!
