Serves the Entire
Parentage refers to who the court will recognize and impose parental obligations on as the child’s legal parent. In some cases, the law presumes that certain individuals are a child’s parents. In other cases, the parent (and in some cases, the child) must seek an order from the court that identifies the child’s legal parents.
Individuals who have been victims of certain qualifying crimes, suffered physical or mental harm as a result of that crime and assists law enforcement in the apprehension and prosecution of the perpetrator of that crime may be eligible for this form of immigration relief. Individuals who are eligible for this form of immigration relief may also be able to obtain derivative relief for their family members, including their spouse, child, parent or sibling.
