Understand Special Juvenile Immigration Status

Learn More About What This Status Means

One of our key areas of focus is helping child abuse victims aged 20 or younger obtain residence through the Special Juvenile Immigration Status (SJIS). This specialized status not only assists in securing residence but also expedites the process of qualifying for a green card. Our child abuse attorneys are well-versed in the legal intricacies surrounding SJIS applications and will guide you through the necessary steps with expertise and care.

To be eligible for SJIS, you must:

  • Be 20 years old or younger at the time of filing (depending on the state)
  • Have no parents living in the US or living with 1 parent in the US
  • Not be married.
  • Have a valid court order that illustrates that it would not be in your best interest to return to your country of origin.

Generally speaking, most individuals granted SJIS have been the victims of child abuse, neglect, or abandonment. This status allows you to obtain legal residence in the United States and fast-tracks you for green card qualification. Our criminal child abuse lawyers are ready to guide you through this complex process.
