Selecting Strategies for Survivors of Trafficking: A Deep-Dive Comparison of the U and T Visa

  • T Visas
  • U Visas

This two-day conference is intended for intermediate attorneys and DOJ Accredited Representatives who have experience or interest in working with immigrant survivors of sexual assault, domestic violence, labor offenses, or other crimes that may constitute human trafficking.

ASISTA attorney experts will be joined by other national leaders in the field to discuss immigration options for survivors of sexual assault, domestic violence, labor violations, or other offenses that may constitute human trafficking, with a particular focus on comparing and contrasting the U visa and T visa and their related or ancillary benefits. Each session will focus on a particular element, set of elements, or benefit of the visas, and examine what each requires and how that can inform the selection of an application strategy for your clients. Among other things, we will take a close look at the definition of trafficking, law enforcement cooperation requirements, where the harm to the applicant is and is not relevant, and  the accompanying waivers of inadmissibility, to equip attendees to identify a fitting strategy for their clients. We will also examine where the ancillary benefits for each visa process diverge, what survivors want you to know, and where policy has played and is likely to play a role in future developments.
