Appendix V – States with Involuntary Servitude Mentioned in Other Statutes (December 29, 2021) [pdf]

Involuntary servitude laws vary from state to state. This chart catalogs state statutes that mention involuntary servitude and identifies potential U visa qualifying criminal activity that can fall within the elements of the state’s statute mentioning involuntary servitude. 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 or similar activities present in cases involving state criminal statutes mentioning involuntary servitude, 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.
