Undocumented victims of human trafficking may be able to gain a T visa.

If you already have a T visa, our T Visa Immigration attorneys can help you get your green card.
There are many requirements for gaining a T visa, and our immigration lawyers in Phoenix, AZ, can help you meet them. At New Frontier Immigration Law, we have a long history of helping human trafficking victims get a visa. During a free initial consultation with us, we’ll go over your situation and your eligibility to apply for a T visa.
What Are the Requirements for Getting a T Visa?
With a T visa, an undocumented person who is a victim of human trafficking can stay in the U.S. temporarily for up to four years. During this period, you will be protected from deportation and remain in the United States. Your family members may also be able to qualify for a T visa.
There are certain United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) requirements for obtaining a T visa. Our T visa immigration attorneys in Phoenix, AZ, can help you apply for one if you:
- Are currently or were once a victim of severe human trafficking (either labor trafficking or sex trafficking)
- Are currently physically present in the U.S., American Samoa, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, or at a port of entry due to trafficking
- Can show that you would suffer serious hardship or harm if you were removed from the U.S.
- Are admissible to the U.S.
- Have agreed to assist law enforcement with investigating or prosecuting human trafficking
A lawyer from our firm can explain the requirements to you in greater detail and confirm whether or not you are eligible to apply.

How Will a T Visa Help You Gain Permanent Residency?
With a T visa, you’ll eventually be able to apply for a green card and hold the status of a permanent resident in the United States. However, to get a green card, you’ll need to remain in the U.S. continuously during the investigation or prosecution of the trafficking or continuously for three years. You’ll also have to go through the process of applying for a green card.
If you’ve already had a T visa for three years, we can explain your options for obtaining permanent residency.

- Applying for your T visa
- Helping your family qualify and apply for T visas
- Helping you qualify and apply for permanent residency

Applying for Your T Visa
Your attorney can explain the T visa qualifications and determine if you qualify to apply. If you meet all the requirements, we can help you gather evidence to prove you qualify for a T visa. Your lawyer will guide you through the application process and help ensure you acquire the T visa.
Helping Your Family Qualify and Apply for T Visas
If you have certain family members who want T visas, your lawyer may be able to help them qualify and apply. We understand your family is important to you, so we’ll do everything we can to help them stay with you in the U.S. If certain family members are in present danger, you can apply for a visa for them.
If your family members are not in present danger, you can still apply for a T visa for them. For example, if you are under 21, you can apply on behalf of:
- Your spouse
- Your unmarried children if they are under 21
- Your parents
- Your unmarried siblings who are under 18
If you are 21 or older, you can apply on behalf of your spouse and any unmarried children who are under 21.
Helping You Qualify and Apply for Permanent Residency
If you’ve had a T visa for three years, your lawyer will speak with you about your eligibility for a green card. If you qualify to obtain one, your lawyer will be able to guide you through applying for and acquiring the card.
Preventing or Appealing a Denial
Sometimes, a T visa application gets denied because the applicant can’t prove they were a victim of severe human trafficking or the applicant doesn’t have enough evidence of another requirement.
Your lawyer can ensure that you meet all the requirements and that you have sufficient proof and evidence. This can help prevent your application from getting denied. Alternatively, if your application has already been denied, your lawyer can help you submit more evidence and appeal the decision.
Protecting You from Deportation
Once you have your T visa, you’ll have protections against deportation, but you won’t necessarily be immune to deportation. If you’re ever threatened with deportation, your lawyer may be able to protect you. We can explain your options when you reach out to us.
