U-Visa Application Services
Our Mississippi Immigration Legal Team will assist in your application for U-Visa for the United States and make sure filings are complete and accurate.
What is a U-Visa?
As a victim of a serious crime you may be allowed to stay in the United States for up to four years while you assist law enforcement agents with the investigation of the crime, even if you are undocumented and living illegally in the United States. Once approved by USCIS, the U-Visa will allow you and your immediate family to work and live in the United States, and apply for permanent residency and green card in three years. You are urged to contact a Mississippi immigration defense lawyer for assistance in filing your application.
The application is submitted to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) to obtain non-immigrant status lasting up to four years. It is specifically for non-U.S. citizens who have been victims of a serious crime while in the United States. An applicant must have suffered substantial harm or abuse from acts such as assault, domestic violence, rape, sexual exploitation, prostitution, conspiracy, witness tampering, kidnapping, incest, human trafficking, involuntary servitude, manslaughter, murder and other serious crimes. The applicant must be willing to work with authorities to bring the criminal to justice. The visa permits applicants to also petition for their spouses, children, brothers and sisters under age 18, parents, stepparents and adoptive parents under the U-2 and U-3 non-immigrant visa category. Once the visa is approved a work permit will be issued. USCIS approves up to 10,000 U-visa applications annually.
