The Portela Law Firm, P.C. offers compassionate service to help you get the best possible outcome for your situation.
What Needs to Happen for a Successful Petition
If you are in the country illegally, it is important that you file a petition as soon as possible. Doing so will defer any laws about your legal status and help you avoid deportation. You will need to prove that you were a victim of a qualifying crime and that your safety requires obtaining this visa.
Among the crimes that qualify someone for a U visa are:
- Slave trade
- Domestic violence
- Witness tampering
- False imprisonment
The next step will be to apply using an I-918 form, after which you will need to visit an embassy and undergo a consular interview. Having an experienced immigration attorney here can make a big difference.
