If you are the victim of a crime, you may be able to apply for a visa, regardless of your current immigration status, and even if you have been ordered deported, or are inadmissible for other reasons. Read more to learn the details.
“U Visas” are available to victims of crimes. There are only a certain number granted per year, so you need to ensure your application is filed timely and contains lots of supporting documents and information. Hiring an experienced attorney is the best way to maximize your chances of success.
You can’t be a victim of just any crime to qualify. It must be one of the few specifically listed in the statute. You also must have assisted the government in prosecuting the offense.
For information on whether you qualify and what you can do to help your case, call the experienced immigration attorneys at Saenz & Maniatis, PLLC at (615) 366-1211.
