Applying For U-Visas
Because immigrants fear that they will be deported if they report a crime, immigrant communities are often more susceptible to crimes. U-visas reward immigrants living in the United States for reporting crimes and cooperating with law enforcement agencies in investigating and prosecuting them. The U-visa leads to a green card.
The Victoria Law Firm has graciously helped victims of crime obtain their green card as a result of tragic events that they have suffered. The key part of the U-Visa application is obtaining certification from either the police or a prosecutor that the U-Visa applicant has assisted law enforcement. Our immigration law office can assist in obtaining the proper certifications required to get a green card through U-Visa.
