Humanitarian Relief

Humanitarian Relief

Persons may be eligible to apply for temporary or permanent immigration status in the United States under one or more programs offering humanitarian protection to persons who are fleeing adverse conditions in their country of origin and cannot return. These programs typically allow applicants to apply for work permission and to renew their employment authorization as long as they continue to qualify for humanitarian relief.

Individuals who are the victims of certain qualifying crimes and have suffered substantial emotional or physical injury may also qualify for U nonimmigrant visa classification if they have cooperated with law enforcement in the investigation and prosecution of their perpetrators. The U nonimmigrant visa encourages individuals to report crimes without fear of immigration repercussions and provides them with a pathway to eventually apply for a green card.

Widman, we assist clients by determining their eligibility for humanitarian relief and then guide them through the process of applying for permission to lawfully remain and be employed in the United States.
