Victims of Violent Crimes Might Be Eligible for Permanent Residencies

Shares

The purpose of a U-Visa is to help undocumented immigrants, spouses or their children who have been victims of violent crimes inside the United States and cooperate with the investigation, obtain their residency. Once the U-Visa is granted, you can then apply for a green card and become a permanent resident.

This visa was created to protect the victims of different crimes including abduction, extortion, false imprisonment and domestic violence. In some cases the victim’s previous deportation or minor crimes can be pardoned with the visa.

There are different steps for obtaining your residency through a U-Visa, these are the main ones:

  1. You must request the police report if you don’t have it already.
  2. The U-Visa certification and police report must be sent to the same police station where you obtained the report. The certification must be signed and returned to you.
  3. Submit the signed U-Visa certification to USCIS to apply for your permanent residency.

U-Visa cases are very unique and vary from one person to another. Our attorneys are trained to carefully listen, gather the necessary information and plan a solution catered to your unique case. Schedule a free consultation with our office and our team will help you determine if your case qualifies for a U-Visa or a different type of visa.

After Seven Lawyers Told Her She Couldn’t, Maria Galan Cruz Got Her Residency

Shares

Nothing makes us happier than the satisfaction of our clients after obtaining their residency. After struggling to find the right attorney, Maria Galan Cruz booked a free consultation with our office and got her green card.

Maria has a veteran son who served in the military. This makes her eligible for residency through the Parole in Place program, which allows for immediate family of any active personnel or veterans in the Navy, Army, Marines or Air Force of the United States to obtain their residency.

None of the seven attorneys she previously visited knew about the Parole in Place program, leaving Maria discouraged when she scheduled a free consultation with us. At that time, she just wanted to obtain a work permit. However, our team knew immediately that she qualified for more and we quickly began working on her case.

Less than six months later, Maria got her green card and is now able to legally reside in the United States. Don’t be discouraged by what other attorneys say and book a free consultation to have our team determine your true eligibility.

 

Green Cards for Family of U.S. Military

Shares

Parole in Place is a program designed to allow non-citizen immediate family members of the United States military to apply for a green card without having to leave the country. This program applies to immediate family of any active personnel or veterans in the Navy, Army, Marines or Air Force of the United States.

A major benefit of the Parole in Place program is that you don’t have to leave the country to apply, even if you entered unlawfully. This helps the family avoid high financial costs and separation from applying for a green card outside of the United States. The program also allows for anybody who has been detained at the border or deported to qualify for a green card.

The program requires a Family Petition, Parole in Place Application and Status Adjustment to be submitted to the government. The application process can be long, but you can obtain a work permit and legally work in the United States during this time.

Our lawyers can help you obtain a green card through this program, just like we did with Maria Galan Cruz, who came to us after seven lawyers told her no. Schedule your free consultation and find out if you qualify for the Parole in Place program.
