Appendix IV – States with Involuntary Servitude Statutes (December 29, 2021) [pdf]

Involuntary servitude laws vary from state to state. This chart catalogs state statutes on involuntary servitude and identifies potential U visa qualifying criminal activity that can fall within the elements of the state’s involuntary servitude statute. This chart will also assist DHS adjudicators by providing a state-by-state tool that will facilitate understanding of the types of qualified criminal activities, and assist attorneys and advocates working with involuntary servitude victims in identifying a more complete list of U visa qualifying criminal activities that involuntary servitude victims may also have suffered.
