T nonimmigrant status is a temporary immigration benefit that enables certain victims of a severe form of trafficking in persons) to remain in the United States for an initial period of up to 4 years if they have complied with any reasonable request for assistance from law enforcement in the detection, investigation, or prosecution of human trafficking or qualify for an exemption or exception. T nonimmigrant status is also available to certain qualifying family members of trafficking victims. T nonimmigrants are eligible for employment authorization and certain federal and state benefits and services. T nonimmigrants who qualify may also be able to adjust their status and become lawful permanent residents (obtain a Green Card).
Sex trafficking: When someone recruits, harbors, transports, provides, solicits, patronizes, or obtains a person for the purpose of a commercial sex act, where the commercial sex act is induced by force, fraud, or coercion, or the person being induced to perform such act is under 18 years of age; or
Labor trafficking: When someone recruits, harbors, transports, provides, or obtains a person for labor or services through the use of force, fraud, or coercion for the purpose of involuntary servitude, peonage, debt bondage, or slavery.
These are the victims that can apply for the T Visa. Therefore, if you qualify, you should apply for this.
This particular sample is an actual T Visa Petition for somebody who was a victim of sex trafficking or trafficking illegally in work. Of course, it would be sure that the ultimate beneficiary had the requisite requirements needed to fulfill the T visa and that in fact they were such a victim. Note that our library also has all the other types of preference petitions for your perusal. Note that our library includes not only this family petition and other family preference petitions, but nonimmigrant visa petitions such as the L-1A Intracompany Transferee Petition and other types of applications and petitions such as the Humanitarian Reinstatement application, multiple types of work-permits such as the H-1B Specialty Occupation Visa Petition, the O-1 Extraordinary Alien Petition, B-2 examples, I-140 Applications and many more. If you enjoy this family 2nd preference petition and it makes your life easier, then come back and try the other immigration applications and petitions.
Remember this T Visa Petition does need the cooperation of a government official to ultimately succeed and could eventually get the Green Card. If granted, you will be given an T Visa which will allow you to work and then some time afterwards, you can apply for the Green Card.
