What Are the Benefits of Applying for Special Immigrant Juvenile Status?

The most important benefit of applying for SIJS is obtaining lawful permanent resident status or a green card. Most people want a green card so they can legally live and work in the U.S. with the ability to travel freely. After five years of having your green card you will be able to apply for citizenship. Our SIJS green card attorney will tell you which option is best for you depending on your situation.

The process for applying for SIJS and a green card depends upon whether the young person is applying affirmatively (not in removal court) or defensively (while in deportation court, as a defense to deportation) prevent them from obtaining a green card. 

If you are filing an affirmative SIJS case it means you aren’t in immigration court and will be filing strictly with USCIS (United States Citizenship & Immigration Services). You will file two applications which in most circumstances can be filed together. The first is called form I-360 and the second is called form I-485. In both cases you must attach a court order from a state court indicating you have been abandoned, abused or neglected by at least one parent. 

Unlike the affirmative process, the defensive process is a bit tricker as the child is in court. Therefore, generally, form I-360 is filed with USCIS who has the power to approve or deny the petition for SIJS classification. If approved, the young person can either get their case terminated in court and file the I-485 with USCIS or file the green card application with the immigration judge. Our attorneys are highly successful in both affirmative and defensive SIJS cases.
