Denton County Immigration Humanitarian Relief Attorney

Denton County, TX immigration lawyers for U visas, TPS, DACA, asylum

Lawyers Ready to Aid in Pursuing Humanitarian Relief in the U.S.

When it comes to immigration issues in Texas and throughout the United States, there are several important programs and legal avenues that can help immigrants navigate complex situations. The experienced attorneys at John W. Lawit, LLC have a deep understanding of the various options that are available, and we can provide invaluable assistance to people who are seeking humanitarian relief. We can provide guidance on how to utilize programs such as:

DACA: Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals

DACA is a program enacted by President Barack Obama in 2012 that grants protection from deportation to eligible undocumented immigrants who came to the U.S. as children. Those who are approved under DACA receive temporary relief from deportation proceedings, and they may also receive work authorization documents. The program has recently faced court challenges that have limited its scope, and while U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) cannot approve new DACA applications, it can issue renewals for those who have previously received deferred action. Our attorneys stay abreast of all developments related to DACA so that we can assist clients with applications or explore alternative paths if necessary.

TPS: Temporary Protected Status

Temporary Protected Status is a program established by Congress to provide immigration benefits to certain people from countries that are facing ongoing armed conflict or natural disasters. People who qualify for TPS are protected from deportation during their authorized period of stay, and they may also be granted employment authorization. Our experienced attorneys understand the specific requirements needed to apply for TPS status, and we can guide clients through each step of the process while providing strong advocacy on their behalf.

U Visas: Protection for Crime Victims

The U visa is designed to protect immigrant victims who have suffered substantial physical or mental abuse as a result of qualifying criminal activity committed within U.S. borders. To qualify, immigrants must cooperate with law enforcement in the investigation or prosecution of crimes. U visa recipients are granted temporary legal status and employment authorization, and they may be eligible to apply for lawful permanent residence after a period of time. Our attorneys have extensive experience assisting victims in obtaining U visas by working closely with law enforcement and federal authorities throughout Texas.

T Visas: Relief for Trafficking Victims

The T visa is designed for people who have been the victims of severe forms of human trafficking. Because trafficking victims often face immense physical harm and psychological trauma, they may be afforded comprehensive protections under U.S. immigration law. The T visa provides benefits similar to the U visa, offering temporary legal status, employment authorization, and potential eligibility for permanent residency in the future. The compassionate attorneys at John W. Lawit, LLC have in-depth knowledge of T visa requirements and procedures, and we work to help survivors obtain this critical relief.


For those fleeing persecution in their home countries due to statuses such as religion, race, nationality, membership in certain social groups, or political opinions, asylum may be an available option under U.S. immigration law. Immigrants who apply for asylum must demonstrate a credible fear of persecution if they will be required to return to their home countries. Applying for asylum can be a complex process that requires careful preparation to gather supporting evidence such as affidavits or expert testimony relevant to each unique case. At John W. Lawit, LLC, we have successfully represented numerous clients during this complicated process, and we can assure that immigrants who seek asylum can present compelling arguments backed by concrete evidence.
