Understand Special Juvenile Immigration Status

Learn More About What This Status Means

To be eligible for SJIS, you must:

  • Be 20 years old or younger at the time of filing (depending on the state)
  • Have no parents living in the US or living with 1 parent in the US
  • Not be married.
  • Have a valid court order that illustrates that it would not be in your best interest to return to your country of origin.

Generally speaking, most individuals granted SJIS have been the victims of child abandonment, neglect, or abuse. If the minor has a deportation case, The Law Offices of Judith C. Garcia would fight to terminate the case. This status allows you to obtain legal residence in the United States and fast-tracks you for green card qualification.
