Why Do You Need a U Visa?

A U Visa is crucial if you’ve been a victim of certain crimes and have suffered abuse, as it provides essential benefits, including protection and safety for survivors. With a U Visa, you can obtain temporary legal status in the United States, which allows you to live and work lawfully, contribute to your community, and support yourself and your loved ones. 

U Visa holders are eligible for employment authorization and can access social services, public benefits, and educational opportunities. The U Visa also offers a pathway to permanent residency after a period of three years, so you can enjoy long-term stability in the U.S. and additional benefits. Contact the Ranchod Law Group today to schedule a consultation and get the assistance you need to obtain the benefits and safety you deserve.

U Visa Eligibility Requirements

To be eligible for a U visa, you must meet the following requirements:

  • You are the victim of qualifying criminal activity, including abduction, felonious assault, abusive sexual contact, blackmail, domestic violence, extortion, false imprisonment, female genital mutilation, felonious assault, fraud in foreign labor contracting, hostage, incest, involuntary servitude, kidnapping, manslaughter, murder, obstruction of justice, peonage, perjury, prostitution, rape, sexual assault, sexual exploitation, slave trade, stalking, torture, trafficking, witness tampering, unlawful criminal restraint, or other related crimes.
  • You’ve experienced significant physical or psychological harm as a result of being a victim of criminal activity.
  • You have information regarding the criminal activity and are willing to cooperate, are currently cooperating, or are expected to cooperate with law enforcement in the investigation or prosecution of the crime. 
  • The crime took place in the United States or violated U.S. laws.
  • You meet the admissibility requirements for entry into the United States. If you’ve been found inadmissible, you may apply for a waiver using Form I-192, Application for Advance Permission to Enter as a Nonimmigrant.

An Overview of the U Visa Process

The U visa process includes: 

  • Reporting the crime to law enforcement, cooperating with their investigation, and obtaining a U Visa certification (Form I-918, Supplement B).
  • Collecting all necessary documentation to support your U Visa application, which may include police reports, medical records, affidavits, court documents, and any other evidence that establishes the crime and the abuse you suffered as a result.
  • Completing and submitting the U visa application and supporting documents.
  • USCIS will review your U Visa application and supporting documents; in some cases, they may request additional evidence or schedule an interview to assess your eligibility and the details of the crime
  • If your U Visa application is approved, you’ll be granted U Nonimmigrant Status, which will provide temporary legal status and work authorization in the United States for up to four years. You may be able to apply for a U Visa extension or adjust your status to become a lawful permanent resident after meeting certain requirements.
