U Visa Lawyer in New Jersey to protect victims of crime
Odunlami Law is a professional U Visa Attorney for victims in the US
In order to protect victims of crime, the United States Congress created the so-called U Visa in 2000. Its objective is to motivate victims to enforce the law and take their case to investigation without fear of being deported.
Victims of crimes such as domestic violence, stalking, sexual assault, and felony assault, among others, are eligible for the U Visa.
Immigrants who are given this benefit can receive a work permit (“Employment Authorization Document”) and they will also be able to apply for a permanent residence after three years of obtaining the U Visa. After being a permanent resident for five years, they can also apply for citizenship, assuming they meet all other requirements for the status.
How to know if you are eligible for the U visa
- You are the victim of a qualified criminal act.
- You have suffered physical or mental abuse as a result of being the victim of a criminal act.
- You have information about criminal activity.
- You were helpful, are being helpful, or are likely to be helpful to law enforcement agencies in the criminal investigation or prosecution of the crime.
- This crime took place in the United States or violated US law.
