The United States provides immigration relief to those who have been victims of domestic violence, human trafficking, and other crimes. There are three different filings available for victims of crime; U-VISA, VAWA Self Petitioning, and T-VISA.
U visas can be filed by those who have been a victim of a crime while in the U.S. and have cooperated or are willing to cooperate in the criminal investigation of the crime.
VAWA allows children, spouses, and parents who are victims of battery or cruelty by a U.S. Citizen to apply for lawful residency without their abuser knowing.
These visas are reserved for those who have been victims of human trafficking. This status allows victims of human trafficking non-immigrant status for up to 4 years if they cooperate with an investigation or prosecution into the human trafficking case.
