Know Your Choices For Humanitarian-Based Immigration Status

You might think asylum is your only option for staying in the United States. But there might be another way. At David F. Vedder, P.A., our experienced attorneys have helped more than 12,000 clients nationwide with their immigration matters. If returning to your country of origin is too dangerous, we can help you seek a way to remain in the U.S. on humanitarian grounds.

Beyond Asylum

Asylum is often the first thing people think of when they fear being sent back to their country of origin. However, the law provides other options that might be better for you than petitioning for asylum. These choices include:

  • Green cards for immigrants who are victims of abuse or other crimes.
  • Parole. The U.S. Citizenship and Naturalization Services (USCIS) has the power to grant parole to individuals who do not otherwise qualify to stay in the U.S. temporarily. Types of parole granted include refugee parole, family reunification parole and parole for family members of U.S. military veterans.
  • Temporary protected status for nationals of certain countries where conditions are too unsafe to return to because of civil war, environmental disaster or other extraordinary reasons.
  • DACA, or Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, for certain individuals who arrived as undocumented immigrants as children.

Immigration law is constantly changing. A chance to stay in the U.S. that you did not qualify for last year might be an option today. The lawyers of David F. Vedder, P.A., know the law deeply and stay on top of every change. We will discuss your situation and offer the best possible solutions. We will handle all the paperwork and guide you through the complex steps of applying for the right to stay in this country.
