Humanitarian Relief

North Carolina Humanitarian Relief Lawyer

Not everyone comes to the United States for a specific job or to join family members who are already here. Some people have a much more stressful immigration experience, as it is based on humanitarian relief instead of employment or family reunification. Humanitarian relief might apply to individuals who had to leave their home countries due to persecution, civil war, natural disasters, or other life-threatening circumstances.  

If you believe you might be eligible for humanitarian-based immigration benefits, it is important to discuss the matter with an experienced North Carolina humanitarian relief attorney immediately.


Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) provides relief for young individuals who were brought to the United States as children and meet specific criteria. This relief defers any removal action against qualified individuals for a period of time so they can remain in the U.S.

You might qualify for DACA relief if you meet specific criteria, though the policy for new DACA applications is currently in flux due to recent court decisions. Always discuss the possibility of a new application or assistance with DACA renewal with an experienced DACA immigration attorney who knows the current state of immigration policies.

VAWA and U Visas

The Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) provides protections for immigrants who suffered domestic abuse. You may qualify if you are the spouse of a permanent resident or citizen, and you can show you underwent violence or extreme cruelty. A VAWA petition can prevent you from being removed from the U.S. if you leave your marriage.

U-Visas are non-immigrant visas that you can receive if you were a crime victim while in the United States. You must show that the crime caused serious physical or mental harm and that you cooperated with law enforcement in the investigation or prosecution of the perpetrator. These visas are limited, and there might be a long wait time.
