T Visa Attorneys in Los Angeles

Visas for Victims of Human Trafficking

The United States immigration law provides the Victims of Trafficking in Persons (T) visa as a relief to victims of human trafficking. Essentially slavery is a form of human trafficking and is one of the most despicable criminal activities that take place in the United States. This type of visa helps victims find relief from those activities and allow temporary status in the U.S. for up to 4 years if they assist law enforcement in an investigation.

If you or someone you know was a victim of human trafficking and are scared about how the government will treat them, do not worry. The T Visa was created to provide victims of human trafficking with temporary residence in the United States, allowing them the time they need to recover from their ordeal and figure out what to do next. This visa even allows for holders to find lawful employment.

Applying for a T Visa can be confusing. Reach out to a Los Angeles T visa lawyer at the Law Firm of Anish Vashistha today! Schedule a free consultation with our immigration attorneys to discuss your situation.

Eligibility for T Visas

There are some criteria you will need to meet in order to be eligible for the T Visa. First, you will need to have been in the U.S., American Samoa, Commonwealth of the Northern Marian Islands, or a port of entry as a result of trafficking. You will also need to show that removal from the United States would cause difficulty for you. Thankfully, courts are very sympathetic to the plights of victims of human trafficking and do not usually press this question too hard.

If you are over 18 and not suffering severe physical or psychological trauma, you will also be required to comply with any reasonable request from law enforcement that will assist in the prosecution of the people responsible for your human trafficking.

T Visa Benefits

There many benefits for T Visa holders that are difficult to receive through traditional immigration:

  • 4 years of lawful immigration status & employment authorization.
  • If eligible, an opportunity to apply for lawful permanent residence.
  • Refugee benefits, including financial assistance, job training, & food stamps.
  • Ability to petition T visas for eligible family members in the U.S. or abroad.
  • Eligible for benefits in California as soon as they begin their application.
