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:

  • Abduction
  • Trafficking
  • Slave trade
  • Domestic violence
  • Incest
  • Peonage
  • Witness tampering
  • False imprisonment
  • Prostitution
  • Extortion
  • Torture

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.
