DMRS’ Crime Victims Unit handles a wide-variety of cases, including:
- Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) Petitions (I-360)
- U Visa/Nonimmigrant Status applications (I-918)
- T Visa/Nonimmigrant Status applications (I-914)
- Petitions to Remove the Conditions on Residence (based on domestic violence) (I-751)
- Other benefits available to survivors of domestic violence, human trafficking, or other violent crimes.
Survivors of domestic violence, human trafficking, and other violent crimes are eligible for a number of benefits under Immigration law. Cases of eligible survivors are handled by our Crime Victims Program staff. During your consultation, an Accredited Representative will ask questions about you, your family life, your immigration history, and your criminal history. At the conclusion of your consultation, you will be advised regarding your eligibility to apply for immigration benefits. If you are eligible, our Crime Victims Program staff will prepare and file your application. With your continued cooperation, we will provide representation until a final decision is reached in your case. It is important that all prior immigration history or criminal history be disclosed during the consultation; there are ways to remedy these situations if they are disclosed. However, if you do not disclose this information, it is likely it will be discovered later in the process and may affect your application.
