The Miami immigration lawyers at Revilla Law Firm, P.A., handle every type
of immigration case, including helping victims of crimes file immigrant
visa petitions. What this means is that if you or a family member has
been the victim of a crime, you have available options to seek protection
and safety from the abuser without them being notified about the filing.
Some of the visas for victims of crimes include the following:
U Visa - Victims of Crimes: This visa is for victims of certain crimes who have suffered mental or
physical abuse and are helpful to law enforcement or government officials
in the investigation or prosecution of criminal activity.
Visas for Battered Spouse, Children and Parents: As a battered spouse, child or parent, you may file an immigrant visa petition
under the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA), as amended by the Violence
Against Women Act (VAWA). The VAWA provisions in the INA 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.
Our team of highly professional immigration lawyers understand the sensitivity
associated with being the victim of such crimes and we will always offer
our best guidance and compassion to those who need legal assistance.
As with all of our cases, everything we discusss is kept confidential and
your privacy will always be protected.
