Survivors of Violent Crimes

Crime-victim visas provide an increasingly crucial permanent path to citizenship.

Since our founding in 2010, we have represented survivors of crime—including domestic violence, sexual assault, and human trafficking—through partnerships with victim service providers.

CRIME VICTIM VISAS

U Visa

Enacted by Congress in 2000, U visas are available to survivors of crime who have suffered substantial physical, mental, or emotional abuse and assisted law enforcement in the investigation and/or prosecution of the crime.

T Visa

Enacted by Congress in 2000, T visas are available to survivors of human trafficking who work with law enforcement in the investigation and/or prosecution of the trafficking case.

VAWA Petition

Survivors of domestic violence or abuse by a U.S. Citizen or Legal Permanent Resident spouse, child, or parent can self petition for immigration status independently of their abusive partner or family member, without the abuser's knowledge.
