A: Temporary Protected Status (TPS) eligibility criteria can vary based on the specific country designated for TPS and the regulations in place. Generally, TPS allows eligible nationals of certain countries to temporarily live and work in the United States due to conditions in their home country that prevent them from returning safely.

In the scenario you've described, TPS eligibility would depend on the country that is designated for TPS and the specific requirements outlined by the U.S. government for that country. If both Ukraine and Turkey are designated for TPS and your family meets the eligibility requirements for the respective countries, it's possible that all eligible family members could apply.
