Fairfax Humanitarian Visas Attorneys
We Provide Compassionate Legal Guidance
In the United States, there are three general ways a person can apply for permanent residence: through a family member, through an employment opportunity, or due to recognized humanitarian need. Victims of serious crimes, domestic violence, or human trafficking in the United States can be eligible for relief regardless of how they came to the country or ended up in their current status. Children who have been abandoned, neglected, or abused by one or both parents can apply for status under Special Immigrant Juvenile Status and, eventually, permanent residence.
Violence Against Women Act (VAWA)
Survivors of domestic violence may be eligible to seek protection under the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA). VAWA protections are available to any gender and require that the survivor was physically or mentally abused by their U.S. citizen or Legal Permanent Resident spouse. It is also possible to simultaneously file for the green card application with the VAWA petition.
Victims of violent crimes, including victims of domestic violence, armed robbery, or serious assault, can seek protection in this country through a U-Visa. While the application is pending, victims may receive work authorization. Once granted, individuals are given work authorization and temporary status for four years. After three years in the United States on the U-Visa, victims and their qualified family members may apply for legal permanent residence. Our experienced team is familiar with these sensitive cases and can help you understand your rights and options.
Trafficking & T-Visas
Victims of human trafficking and their families can petition for T-Visas if they report the crime to authorities and aid in the investigation. Immigrants with T-Visas can obtain work authorization and temporary status, including for eligible family members.
An individual or family seeking refuge from persecution in their home country can apply for humanitarian asylum if they have a reasonable fear of returning. Humanitarian asylum applications are not based on a future fear of persecution related to race, religion, nationality, political opinion, or a protected social group. Severe past persecution and events like civil war, extreme economic hardship, FGM, and natural disasters can render individuals eligible for humanitarian asylum. Asylum law is constantly changing and requires careful attention from an experienced attorney.
Trafficking & T-Visas
Victims of human trafficking and their families can petition for T-Visas if they report the crime to authorities and aid in the investigation. Immigrants with for T-Visas can obtain work authorization and temporary status for eligible family members.
