Special Immigrant Juveniles

Special Immigrant Juveniles are children who have come to the United States and have been abandoned, abused and/or neglected by one or both of their parents. Special Immigrant Juvenile Status (SIJS) allows certain undocumented children under the age of 21 to obtain lawful permanent residence. An immigrant minor can even qualify for Special Immigrant Juvenile status if they live with one of his/her biological parents. In addition, Special Immigrant Juvenile Status enables persons further benefits such as college and work opportunities to any child who qualifies.

However, SIJS can only be granted by US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) after the minor either has been found to be dependent upon the Family Court or has been placed under the custody of an agency or department of a state, or an individual or entity;

Mr. Horn has experience in obtaining the necessary orders from Family Court as well as thereafter successfully applying for Special Immigrant Juvenile Status and lawful permanent residence for undocumented minors who have been abandoned, neglected, and/or abused.
