What is a U-Visa?

The U Visa is a form of relief for victims of certain crimes who have suffered mental or physical abuse and cooperated with law enforcement or government officials to investigate or prosecute the perpetrator. U-Visa eligibility is based on whether the victim corroborated with the law enforcement or government officials and decided to prosecute the offender.

U-Visa Process Steps

The first step towards filing the U-Visa application is obtaining the police report or any report from a law enforcement agency indicating that the victim assisted with investigating or prosecuting the criminal. Secondly, the U-Visa certification is sent along with the report to the law enforcement agency to sign off on proving the victim did aide the agencies. Finally, after the U-Visa certification is approved, the U-Visa application along with the approved U-Visa certification is filed with USCIS. The processing times vary depending on how many U-Visa are granted each year.

U-Visa Requirements

The U-Visa requirements depend on whether you are the victim of qualifying criminal activity. The most common qualifying criminal activities are the following: sexual assault, domestic violence, felonious assault, rape, abusive sexual contact, and other violent crimes. The U-Visa regulations are in place to assist law enforcement agencies to protect the victims of the crimes. Additionally, the regulations help to better adjudicate the applications that are processed each year by USCIS.

Why Hire an Attorney to Obtain a U-Visa?

The U-Visa application is fairly complicated to maneuver due to the multi step process and the complexity of the applications.
