Special Immigrant Visas

Special Immigrant Visa

Violence Against Women Act (VAWA)
  • If you are the victim of battery or extreme cruelty committed by a U.S. citizen spouse or former spouse; a U.S. citizen parent; a U.S. citizen son or daughter; a lawful permanent resident (LPR) spouse or former spouse; or an LPR parent, you may be eligible to become a lawful permanent resident (Green Card) under the federal Violence Against Women Act (VAWA).
    You may self-petition under VAWA by submitting a Petition for Amerasian, Widow(er), or Special Immigrant (Form I-360) without the knowledge or approval of your abusive family member. A VAWA self-petitioner is someone who files a self-petition under VAWA. If your self-petition is authorized and you complete the other requirements, you may be able to seek to become a lawful permanent resident.
Special Immigrant Visas for Iraqi & Afghan Translator/Interpreters
  • The Afghan Special Immigrant Visa (SIV) program was created to protect Afghan allies who risked their lives helping U.S. troops in Afghanistan. These individuals provided indispensable linguistic, cultural, and geographic knowledge to the United States at great personal risk to themselves and their loved ones.
