Seeking Special Immigrant Juvenile Status in Los Angeles?

If you are a child who has been abused, abandoned, or neglected by one or both parents, you may be eligible for Special Immigrant Juvenile Status (SIJS), a legal means to obtain permanent residency in the United States. Law Offices of Eliza Glants in Los Angeles specialize in SIJS cases, providing compassionate and skilled legal representation to help vulnerable children secure a stable and safe future.

Understanding Special Immigrant Juvenile Status

Special Immigrant Juvenile Status is a provision under U.S. immigration law designed to assist children who cannot reunite with one or both parents due to abuse, neglect, or abandonment.
