Notice Date: 05/07/2019
In order to win U Visa Petitions we have to prove:
- that our client suffered a qualifying crime;
- that they suffered substantial injuries as a result of the crime;
- that they cooperated with the police in the prosecution of the assailant.
Before proceeding to submit the application on behalf of this Mexican national with USCIS we had to obtain a signature from the certifying official from the agency that the police report was filed in.
In order for the certification to be approved, we had to prove that the crime was a qualifying crime and that the victim cooperated with the police. For this case we submitted:
- The Police Report;
- Restraining Order;
- Medical Records;
- Psychological Report.
along with a client testimonial.
We argued that the abuse was not only physical but also emotional and that our client had not overcome the trauma inflicted on her.
Once the certification was approved we gathered testimonial letters from friends and family focusing on our client’s good moral character.
We also submitted articles about our client’s home country to show the suffering she and her children would endure if her case were denied.
Each U Visa application is highly specific and our arguments are based on the actual facts in each case. We relied heavily on our ability to argue the case and document all the negative aspects that our client endured as a result of the crime. As well as proving her good moral character and arguing the hardships she would endure if the case were denied.
We try to approach each case with multifaceted arguments.
The processing time for this U Visa case was approximately 4 years but thankfully we received a positive outcome.
Our office has extensive experience helping clients from all sorts of backgrounds and different circumstances. We are so happy for our Client’s future!
