Coronavirus Announcement: During the Coronavirus epidemic, our main objective is to provide a safe place for initial office consultations. Therefore, our firm has decided to limit face-to-face consultations except for those individuals who do not have access to Skype or FaceTime, and whose cases maybe too complicated to review without an in-person consultation. Thank you for your understanding during these turbulent times.
There’s a specific visa for victims of crime. It’s called a U Visa.
To be eligible for the U Visa, it has to be a rather serious crime; a felonious assault, an armed robbery. Anything in that nature, you should be eligible for a U Visa.
Another requirement is that you had to help in the prosecution of that crime. If you didn’t, then you’re not going to be able to obtain a U Visa.
Even if that crime occurred ten or twelve years ago and you aided the police or the district attorney’s office in processing that crime, you’ll still be eligible.
The other requirement is you will not be able to proceed with the U Visa unless the district attorney’s office or the police department signs a 918 supplemental form saying yes, you were actually very instrumental in the prosecution of the crime.
