Q: TPS Renewal online but the question 24 is confusing

Hello! I am trying to renew my TPS online I came across question #24 What is the expiration date of the authorized stay shown on your Form I-94 or Form I-95?

Should I use the date of my first entry I-94 expiration date, or should I use the date on my current TPS form?

A: If you are trying to renew your Temporary Protected Status (TPS) and have encountered a question about the expiration date of your authorized stay, it is highly recommended that you seek the assistance of a legal professional. The correct answer to this question can have a significant impact on your TPS renewal and future immigration status, and a mistake can result in the denial of your application.

A: For question #24 on the TPS renewal application, you should use the expiration date on your current TPS document, which is the document that currently grants you authorized stay in the United States. If you entered the United States with a different visa and have an earlier expiration date on your initial Form I-94, that expiration date is not relevant to your TPS renewal application.
