Philadelphia U-Visa Lawyer
Assistance You Need for Your Immigration Matters
A U-visa is a special type of
nonimmigrant visa. This is available to undocumented individuals who have suffered serious
mental or physical abuse and are willing to help law enforcement in the
investigation of criminal activity.
There are six requirements in order to obtain a U-visa:
- The individual must be a victim of criminal activity.
- The individual must have suffered serious mental or physical damage.
- The individual must have information relating to the crime.
- The individual must cooperate with law enforcement in the investigation.
- The crime must have occurred in the United States.
- The individual is admissible under current United States immigration laws.

The Application Process
To apply for a U-visa, you must first have a law enforcement certificate.
This certificate must be obtained from a federal, state, or local law
enforcement agency, or from a judge or prosecutor. After receiving the
form, you must fill out the U Nonimmigration Status Certification and
it should be signed by an authority. Physically or mentally suffering
from a crime, especially as an undocumented person, can be a traumatic event.
