SIJS Attorneys in Manassas
Handling Your Immigration Needs Quickly & Efficiently
Special Immigrant Juvenile Status (SIJS) is a niche within immigration law which allows an undocumented juvenile who is the victim of abuse, neglect, or abandonment to obtain a Green Card – the ultimate pathway to citizenship. At Foster McCollam, we do not handle immigration cases in immigration court; we assist immigration attorneys in obtaining predicate orders from the juvenile courts in Virginia. If you're trying to get an order through SIJS, we can assist you.
We present to the court evidence that the juvenile had been abused, neglected, or abandoned and ask the court to make written findings in the form of an order. That order is then provided to the immigration attorney who will follow through with filing the necessary documents in immigration court. You can rely on our SIJS lawyers in Manassas to guide you through the complex process and help you make well-informed decisions about your future.

How We Can Assist You
In most cases, these juveniles come to our office with one parent, a family member, or a friend who is seeking to obtain custody of the minor child. We then file a custody petition and ask the court to make the findings in a custody order. However, the findings can be made in any juvenile case that is properly before the court, including delinquency matters, children in need of supervision, children in need of services, truancy cases, abuse and neglect proceedings, etc. However, the court cannot go back in time to make these findings; therefore, it is of the utmost importance that an undocumented minor child consults with an attorney who is well versed in the area of SIJS practice to screen for Special Immigrant Juvenile Status eligibility.
