Helping Immigrants With Humanitarian Relief Processes

If you have been a victim of a crime or are dealing with a hostile situation, you may be scared and not sure what to do. At the Law Office of Isaias Torres, we are committed to helping you and your family find safety and comfort through humanitarian relief visas or parole. We use our knowledge of immigration law, experience with processes and legal skills to fight on your behalf.

Guiding Individuals In Need

For over 40 years, we have assisted clients in humanitarian crises with obtaining visas, seeking deferred action and those under temporary protection status.

Our comprehensive services include forms of humanitarian relief for:

  • Victims of human trafficking
  • Battered spouses, children and parents
  • Temporary protection status
  • Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals
  • Deferred Enforcement Departure
  • Urgent family and medical crises
  • Parole in place for military spouses
  • Travel authorization

Our attorneys understand that when you are in these situations, you need an advocate you can trust. We work with you and fight for the dignity, respect and aid you deserve.

Aid For Crime Victims

Victims of crimes deserve justice and support. This includes immigrants and noncitizens who have been wronged through criminal acts and violence.

Our immigration lawyers work with:

  • U Nonimmigrant status/U visa: If you are willing to cooperate with law enforcement and speak out about what happened to you, you can qualify for the U visa.
  • T Nonimmigrant status/T visa: If you have been the victim of trafficking — whether it be human, sex or labor — and you agree to comply with law enforcement requests, you may qualify for the T visa.
  • Violence Against Women Act (VAWA): If you have been abused by a U.S. citizen or permanent resident, you may apply for permanent residency under this act. Spouses, parents and children can file if they have suffered abuse.

Deferred Action Programs

In certain cases, deferred action may be granted to illegal immigrants. You will not receive legal status, but deportation efforts will be delayed. Popular deferred action programs include:

  • Family Fairness Program
  • Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals
  • Deferred Action for Parental Accountability

Temporary Protective Status

Countries that are affected by extreme humanitarian crises can be given temporary protected status. When a country is granted this status, nationals of these countries who reside in the U.S. can apply for this protective status. When granted this status, deportation is prevented and you may apply for a work permit.
