Special Immigrant Juvenile (SIJ) Status

Children who are undocumented or out of status receive an enormous benefit from being granted Special Immigrant Juvenile (SIJS). In order for the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services ("USCIS") to allow an adjustment of status, a court with jurisdiction over the child must make findings of fact called "Special Findings." The Special Findings order issued by the court is the necessary first step for the child to apply for SIJ status though USCIS. The request for a Special Findings order is often made in the context of an adoption or guardianship proceeding, and Greenberg Bryant & Bleier, LLP, can do all of that work for you.

The SIJ status program was created by USCIS to help foreign children in the U.S. who have been abused, abandoned or neglected by their parents or guardians. Special Immigrant Juvenile status allows the child to remain in the United States legally. In many cases, the child will also be adopted by a guardian or relative who is a United States citizen.
