Working Together to Reduce U.S. Crime – The U Visa & How it Works

This brief blog article is a quick reference to help explain the U visa. Often our clients overlook crimes which qualify for U visa consideration. Both mental and physical harm suffered by a victim of crime is serious, and grounds for U visa eligibility. The goal of the U visa is for victims of crime to assist or cooperate in the investigation or prosecution of crimes in the United States.

If you or someone you know has experienced any of the below crimes while residing in the United States it is important to contact qualified legal authorities through U.S. immigration legal counsel:

Abduction
Abusive Sexual Contact
Blackmail
