Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) petitions: Relief provided to a spouse or a child of a U.S. citizen or Legal Permanent Resident (LPR) who is a victim of domestic violence.

U-Visas: Provides relief to immigrant victims of certain enumerated crimes who have suffered substantial physical or mental abuse and cooperated with law enforcement in the investigation and/or prosecution of their offender.

Asylum: Relief available to persons fleeing their home country as a result of being persecuted for their race, religion, nationality, political opinion or membership in a social group.
