Additional Immigration Relief
At Malik & Associates, PLLC we provide assistance in the following additional immigration relief services:
Visa for Victims of Crimes (U-Visa): U-Visas allow foreign nationals to become permanent lawful residents and receive a green card if they qualify. A foreign national qualifies if he or she has been a victim of a crime, suffered substantial physical or mental abuse, and helps with the investigation or prosecution of the perpetrator.
Human Trafficking (T-Visa): T-Visas are part of the Victims of Trafficking and Violence Protection Act and enable those who qualify to be granted temporary status to remain in the United States for up to 4 years, with a possible path to becoming a lawful permanent resident. Non-immigrants qualify if they were victims of a severe form of human trafficking and assisted law enforcement with the investigation or prosecution of the perpetrators.
Special Immigrant Juvenile Visa (SIJV): This classification is granted to juveniles that need the protection of a juvenile court because they were abused, abandoned, or neglected by a parent. It may also qualify them for lawful permanent residency.
Employer Compliance (I-9 & E-Verify): This is an internet-based system used for confirming the identities and employment authorization of individuals hired in the United States. All U.S. employers and employees must complete this form and ensure it is accessible for inspection by authorized government officers.
Violence Against Women Act (VAWA): The Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) is a piece of legislation that was authorized to better the criminal justice system and community response to domestic violence, sexual assault, dating violence, and stalking. The legislation was passed to ensure that no one is suffering in silence from these heinous acts in the United States.
Temporary Protected Status (TPS): A foreign country may be designated Temporary Protected Status (TPS) due to conditions in that country that temporarily or circumstantially prevent its nationals from safely returning. Additionally, USCIS has the discretion to grant TPS to eligible individuals who are already present in the United States if they are from certain countries.
Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA): Certain individuals who came to the U.S. as children and meet several standards can request consideration of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) for 2 years. Currently and until further notice, USCIS will not accept requests from individuals who were never granted deferred action under DACA.
Humanitarian Parole: Humanitarian Parole is a measure used to bring an otherwise inadmissible alien into the U.S. temporarily due to a serious or life-threatening emergency.
Humanitarian Reinstatement (205 or 204L): Humanitarian Reinstatement is a form of relief that can be requested by the principal beneficiary when the petitioner has died.
Change of Status: If you wish to change the purpose of your visit while in the United States (for example tourist to student), you or your employer must file a request for Change of Status before your authorized stay expires.
Extension of Stay: If you wish to extend your stay in the United States, Form I-539 must be filed before your authorized stay expires to request an extension or change of non-immigrant status.
