Legal Status for Minors

There are several common types of humanitarian-based paths to obtaining lawful immigration status in the U.S.
  • DACA: The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program protects undocumented immigrants who arrived in the U.S. as children from deportation. We can help you apply for DACA, renew DACA, or advise you on your DACA status if you have been arrested. Some people with DACA are eligible for a travel permit, and we can help you with that, too.
  • Abused, neglected, or abandoned children: Children under 21 who were abused, neglected, or abandoned by at least one parent may be able to apply for special immigrant juvenile (SIJ) status.  This program offers a path to stay in the U.S. and eventually apply for a green card.
  • Crime victims: If you were the victim of a violent crime while in the U.S., you might qualify for a U visa. The most common qualifying crimes include domestic violence, sexual assault, and felonious assault.
  • Abused Spouse: If you are or were married to a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident (green card holder) who abused you physically or emotionally, then you may be eligible to self-petition for permanent resident status thanks to the Violent Against Women Act (VAWA).
  • TPS: If your country has been affected by war, civil strife, or a severe natural disaster, the U.S. may have designated your country for Temporary Protected Status (TPS).  Nationals of Ukraine, Sudan, Haiti, Afghanistan, Syria, or Venezuela – for example – are designated for special protection.  If you believe that you may qualify for TPS, We can help you.

If you qualify for one of these programs or any other Humanitarian-based immigration program, We will work with you to apply.
