Exceptional Circumstances Immigration Lawyers Miami
Many immigrants come to the United States via a workers visa or a family based visa, but some people are wishing to immigrate into the country are not doing so to come work, but are seeking entry for their safety and well-being. In cases where an individual is being persecuted by their government or has been the victim of violence in their country the United States has set up immigration protocol that will allow them to escape danger. Three of these procedures are: the Violence Against Women Act, the Asylum program, and the Amnesty program.The Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) allows victims of domestic violence to apply for immigration status without the knowledge or involvement of the abuser.
The Asylum statute allows a refugee who is unable or unwilling to return to that country because of persecution or a well-founded fear of persecution on account of race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group, or political opinion to apply for status within the US.
Amnesty, which is no longer an active program, continues to impact many people within the country. When active, the amnesty program allowed those who entered the country illegally and those who entered legally but overstayed their visa expiration dates to qualify for adjustment of status.
