U VISAS FOR VICTIMS OF CRIMES
Victims of certain crimes in the United States who have cooperated with law enforcement or government officials in the investigation or prosecution of criminal activity may qualify for a U Visa.
You may qualify for a U Visa if:
You are a victim of a qualified criminal activity that occurred in the United States or violated United States laws
You have suffered substantial physical or mental abuse as a result of such criminal activity
You have information about the criminal activity and were, are, or are likely to be helpful in the investigation and/or prosecution of the crime.
You are admissible to the United States. For those who are not admissible, you may be able to apply for a waiver.
U Visa holders may apply for permanent residence three years after being granted U-Visa status if they meet certain criteria.
If you believe that you may qualify for a U Visa, please contact the attorneys at Lehigh Immigration for a consultation.
