  • Bond Hearings:  If you have a family member in immigration custody, they may be eligible for release on what’s known as a bond.  
  • Special Immigrant Juvenile Status (SIJS): This designation helps noncitizens who are victims of abuse, abandonment or neglect to gain citizenship with safe legal guardians in the U.S.
  • Waivers & Provisional Waivers: If you’ve been convicted of a crime or have overstayed your visa, you may be eligible for forgiveness (waiver) so that you can apply for an immigration benefit such as a change of status or green card.
  • Visas:  There is a visa for every letter of the alphabet.  Some offer a pathway to citizenship while others may allow you to live/work in the U.S.
