Other Relief and Services Our Baltimore Immigration Attorneys Provide

Our immigration law firm offers a wide range of services. Our clients are our top priority, and we do whatever we can to meet their needs, including providing other relief and services:

Special Immigrant Juvenile Status

Special Immigrant Juvenile Status is a legal classification granted by the United States to foreign children in the U.S. who have been abused, neglected, or abandoned by one or both parents. This status provides a pathway for these children to obtain lawful permanent residency (a Green Card) in the U.S.


U-Visas serve as a critical pathway for non-citizens who are victims of certain crimes in the United States to obtain temporary legal status and work eligibility. The key to the U-Visa's purpose is its role in strengthening law enforcement agencies' ability to investigate and prosecute cases of domestic violence, human trafficking, sexual assault, and other qualifying crimes. To be eligible, individuals must demonstrate that they have suffered substantial physical or mental abuse because of the crime and have been, or are likely to be, helpful to law enforcement or government officials in the investigation or prosecution of the criminal activity. If granted, the U-Visa allows the applicants to remain in the U.S. for up to four years, with a possibility for permanent residency under certain conditions.

Temporary Protected Status

Temporary Protected Status is a provisional immigration status provided to nationals of certain countries experiencing environmental disaster, ongoing armed conflict, or other extraordinary and temporary conditions. TPS grants eligible individuals the right to live and work in the United States for a designated period, which can be extended depending on the condition of their home country. While TPS does not lead directly to permanent residency or citizenship, it offers a reprieve from deportation and the ability to apply for an Employment Authorization Document (EAD). The decision to designate a country for TPS is made by the Secretary of Homeland Security based on careful consideration of the country's current conditions.

Work Permit and Travel Document

The Employment Authorization Document, often known as a work permit, is a critical document issued by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) that grants non-citizens the legal right to work in the United States for a specific period. To obtain an EAD, individuals must complete Form I-765, Application for Employment Authorization, and provide necessary documentation to prove their eligibility. This process varies depending on the applicant's immigration status or category. Once approved, the EAD card outlines the individual’s identity and their authorized period of employment. It's important for employers to verify the validity of this document before hiring a non-citizen to ensure compliance with immigration laws and employment regulations.

Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) Immigration Relief

The Violence Against Women Act provides crucial immigration relief to non-citizen victims of domestic violence, allowing them to obtain legal status in the United States without relying on their abuser. This is primarily achieved through a self-petitioning process, which involves eligible individuals filing for themselves without the abuser's knowledge or consent. It is designed to protect victims who are spouses, children, or parents of U.S. citizens or lawful permanent residents. Once approved, the petitioner can obtain work authorization, and eventually, they may also be eligible for lawful permanent residency. This provision is a critical component of VAWA, ensuring that victims of abuse do not have to remain in harmful situations due to fear of deportation or loss of legal immigration status.
