San Jose T Visas Attorney

Representation for Victims of Human Trafficking

A T visa is a visa that is issued to people who are victims of “severe trafficking”, which includes the use of force, fraud, or coercion for sex trafficking and/or involuntary servitude, peonage, debt bondage, or slavery. The United States Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) can issue up to 5,000 T visas every year. If you believe that you qualify for a T visa, it is important you consult with an experienced San Jose immigration lawyer to discuss your options. At Verma Law Firm, we offer assistance and legal advice for the application process.

To apply for a green card as a T-1 nonimmigrant (principal), you must meet the following conditions:

  • You have been physically present in the United States for a continuous period of at least 3 years since the first date of admission as a T-1 nonimmigrant.
  • You have been physically present in the United States for a continuous period during the investigation or prosecution of acts of trafficking, and the Attorney General has determined the investigation or prosecution is complete, whichever period of time is less.
  • You have been a person of good moral character since first being admitted as a T-1 nonimmigrant and until the decision on your Form I-485.
  • You have complied with any reasonable request for assistance in the investigation or prosecution of acts of trafficking since first being admitted as a T-1 nonimmigrant and until a decision on your Form I-485.
  • You would suffer extreme hardship involving unusual and severe harm upon removal from the United States.
  • You are admissible to the United States as a permanent resident.
