Immigration law covers many different areas and can be challenging to navigate. At The Cintron Firm, we want to provide you the opportunity to discuss your particular situation with a member of our staff and provide you the best guidance going forward. We recognize that at times you will have various options. We also recognize that at times you may have no options. This is why we will never charge a consultation fee to review your immigration matter.
The main areas of our immigration practice include the following:
- Family-Based Petitions: If you have a spouse, fiancé, children, parents, or siblings that reside outside of the U.S., they may qualify for immigration status in the U.S.
- Naturalization and Citizenship: If you are a permanent resident (green card holder), you are eligible for citizenship after a certain period of time.
- Special Immigration Juvenile Status (SIJ Visa): If you are the parent or caretaker of a child that has been abandoned, abused or neglected by one or both parents, the child may be eligible for legal status even if the child arrived in the U.S. “without papers.”
- Abused Spouse Benefits (VAWA Spousal Petition): If you reside with your spouse, and you have suffered emotional or physical abuse by the spouse, you and your children may qualify for benefits through a Spouse VAWA Self-Petition.
- Abused Parent Benefits (VAWA Parent Petition): If you are the parent of a United States citizen or lawful permanent resident (green card holder), if your child is over 21 years old, and you have suffered emotional or physical abuse by the child, you may qualify for benefits through a Parent VAWA Self-Petition.
- Victims of Criminal Activity (U-Visa): If you have suffered “substantial physical or mental abuse” as a result of criminal activity and the criminal activity has been documented, you and certain family members may be eligible to apply for a U-Visa.
- Victims of Trafficking and Their Families (T-Visa): If you have been a victim of domestic violence, sexual abuse, involuntary servitude, smuggling by Coyotes or any other trafficking, you and certain family members may be eligible to obtain a T-Visa.
If you believe that you or anyone you know may qualify for any of these immigration benefits, please feel free to contact us for a consultation.
