Crime victims may qualify for a U visa

If you have been the victim of physical or mental abuse as an immigrant, you are not alone. Each year, a large number of undocumented immigrants are subjected to this type of abuse in the United States. Additionally, there are unscrupulous individuals and organizations out there that may take advantage of your immigration status to victimize you. However, due to your status, you may be reluctant to seek help from the police because you fear deportation.

Fortunately, in such cases, you may be eligible for a U visa. This type of visa will allow you to stay in the United States as a "nonimmigrant." If you stay in the U.S. for three continuous years following the receipt of it, you may be able to apply to become a lawful permanent resident.

Who is eligible for the visa?

You may be eligible for a nonimmigrant visa if:

· You are a victim of a qualified crime occurring within the United States

· You have suffered substantial physical or mental abuse as a result of the crime

· You have assisted or are likely to assist law enforcement in the investigation or prosecution of the crime

The types of crimes that qualify for U visas are very diverse.
