New Jersey T Visa Attorney
Legal Assistance for Victims of Trafficking
A T visa is a temporary visa granted to those who have been victims of
severe forms of human trafficking. This
temporary visa is issued on the stipulation that the victim cooperates with law enforcement
in their efforts to investigate and pursue those criminals who are involved
in the trafficking operation. If, however, the victim is under the age
of 18, he or she is not required to cooperate with law officials in order
to be granted a T visa.
Obtaining a T visa can be a complicated process. My immigration law firm,
The Law Offices of Lloyd E. Bennett, Esq., P.C. is experienced in helping
such victims obtain T visas. We have already helped thousands of clients
solve their immigration and visa issues. Do not hesitate to get in touch

Why apply for the T visa?
Successfully applying for a T visa may get you the protection and security
you need. It is not unusual for individuals to be afraid to speak out
or seek help from law enforcement, but applying for T nonimmigrant status
may be one of the most important and positive moves a person can make.
If you are considering applying, then your livelihood may be at stake. Our
New Jersey immigration lawyer works closely with clients to ensure that forms are carefully prepared
and quickly handled, and no time is wasted.
What is allowed under a T Visa?
Anyone granted a T visa is allowed to remain in the United States for a
period of three years, starting on the approval date of the application.
If, however, the law enforcement agency declares that more time is needed
in order to complete their investigation and/or prosecution of those responsible
for the human trafficking, the T visa can be extended.
Additionally, immediate family members of the victim, such as a spouse,
child or parents (if the victim is under 18), can also be granted the
same T visa status. The recipient of a T visa is also allowed to legally
work during the duration of the visa. This is accomplished through the
issuance of an Employment Authorization Document (EAD).
My firm is skilled at helping victims of human trafficking obtain T visas
as well as many
other temporary visas, immigration, deportation/removal, and citizenship issues.
