The Victims of Trafficking and Violence Protection Act was passed into law in 2000. Among other things, this legislation created the U visa. Limited to 10,000 total applicants per year, the U visa offers noncitizen victims of crime immigration protection if they are willing to cooperate with law enforcement.
At Kriezelman Burton & Associates, LLC, our compassionate immigration lawyers are committed to assisting victims with their U visa applications. If you or a loved one qualifies for this type of immigration relief, please do not hesitate to contact our top-rated Chicago U visa lawyers for immediate assistance with your case.
U visas are only available to people who have been the victims of a serious crime. To qualify for a U visa, the following five things are required:
There are many different types of crimes that qualify for relief under the U visa program. Some of the most common examples include:
If you are issued a U visa, you will have the legal authority to live and work within the United States for as long as you retain the visa. This in itself is a very valuable benefit. Additionally, a U visa can be used as a path to American citizenship. After three years of living in the U.S. with this type of visa, you can apply for a green card. Finally, U visa holders are able to bring certain family members over to the United States. Specifically, a U visa holder may be able to bring his or her children and spouse into the United States. Family members of U visa holders who come to the U.S. are able to file an application to receive authorization to work in the country.
