Former Immigration Judge Helping You Achieve the American Dream

What is the Purpose of a U Visa?

Hollywood, FL Immigration Attorneys Helping Crime Victims

Aliens who have been the victim of a crime and are in the process of assisting or have assisted with the investigation or prosecution may be eligible for a U visa, also known as a visa for crime victims. If you have suffered substantial abuse and are in need of a U visa, you will need to hire a Hollywood visa lawyer from Garcia, Miranda & Gonzalez-Rua, P.A. to represent you and assist you with the process. There are certain qualifications which you must have and be able to prove in order to apply for this type of visa.

In order to prove your eligibility for a U visa, you must meet the following requirements:

  • The victim must have filed a report with the police or another law enforcement agency
  • The victim must have suffered physical or mental abuse (as a direct result of the crime)
  • The victim or the victim's children will experience more suffering if deported or removed from the U.S.
  • The crime must have taken place in the United States

What Is a U Visa & How Does it Work?

The U visa was established as a form of humanitarian relief for individuals who were the victim of certain crimes, have cooperated with law enforcement, or have suffered mental or physical harm. This visa is part of the Trafficking Victims Protection Act of 2000 and people who are granted a U visa have permission to live and work in the United States for a period of up to four years.

There is an allocation of 10,000 U visas which can be issued each year, so it is important that you hire a Hollywood visa lawyer to represent you and get started on the application process immediately.
