What is the Adam Walsh Act?

The Adam Walsh Act can prohibit citizens with a sex offense conviction from filing a family-based visa petition. These are usually based on inaccurate beliefs of “once an offender, always an offender ” and not based on scientific data. Still, it becomes the citizen’s burden of proof to show that they are not a threat to the beneficiary of the visa petitioner.

Using multiple measures and testing tools, a valid Sex Offender Risk Evaluation can be used to help support the petitioner’s claim. An assessment cannot prove the innocence or guilt of a person convicted of a sexual offense. However, the science says no one has a zero risk of committing a sexual offense. This assessment, written with documentation of the published scientific data, can help to determine an accurate risk level. This has been used in many Immigration Court cases.
