Victim Of A Crime
Victims of physical and mental abuse may qualify for U visas if they meet certain criteria. U visa applicants must have information about the criminal activity and be willing to provide it to law enforcement. Additionally, they must have been helpful or agree to be helpful to the authorities throughout the investigation and prosecution of the crime. If you were a victim of a crime you may qualify for a U-Visa. Please contact our office to better assess your options.
Victim Against Women Act (VAWA)
As a battered spouse, child or parent, you may file an immigrant visa petition under Violence Against Women Act (VAWA). The VAWA provisions allow certain spouses, children, and parents of U.S. citizens and certain spouses and children of permanent residents (Green Card holders) to file a petition for themselves, without the abuser’s knowledge. This allows victims to seek both safety and independence from their abuser, who is not notified about the filing.
Individuals who are not permanent citizens of the United States may be deported to their country of origin if they do not follow proper protocol or are charged with a crime. If you are facing deportation and need a immigration lawyer who is familiar with the latest and most effective legal strategies, The Law Offices of Abner Pinedo can help. We have helped numerous individuals fight their deportation charges and remain in the United States. Our firm can assist and represent you throughout the entire deportation process. We will aggressively defend your rights.
United States law allows foreign nationals to apply for asylum if they will be subjected to persecution in their homeland due to their race, religion, nationality, social membership, or political beliefs. Those who are eligible for asylum can remain in the country without fear of deportation. There are two kinds of asylum applications, Affirmative and Defensive. Understanding whether you or a loved one is eligible for affirmative asylum depends on whether removal proceedings have begun. Should the affirmative asylum application be rejected, the case will likely be referred to immigration court for defensive asylum. That is why it is so important to work with an experienced immigration attorneys who understand the system and utilize tactics to improve the chances that your asylum application is approved.
