Core to the American Immigration System is the availability of protection when an immigrant has suffered harm, abuse, witnessed a crime, been the victim of trafficking or domestic violence, has assisted law enforcement in investigations, or been the victim of a crime. These protections fall under the broad category of Protective Visas. To secure protection is no simple task; rather, successful applications necessitate substantial effort, documentation, evidence, and legal arguments establishing eligibility for the protection requested. For decades, Norris McLaughlin & Marcus has handled countless applications and other legal requests for individuals seeking protection of the United States Government, because of domestic violence, cooperation, victims of crimes and human trafficking.
Norris McLaughlin & Marcus Attorneys work closely with the victim, family members, federal, state, and local law enforcement, immigration authorities, medical providers, and others, to ensure that any request for protection is detailed and comprehensive. In addition to asylum protection, other protective visas and applications include:
- Violence Against Women Act (VAWA)
- Continued Presence (CP)
- Significant Public Benefit Parole
- Deferred Action
