Visas, Green Cards & Waivers - Keeping Families Together

U Visa Attorneys in Oakland

Providing Effective Legal Services across the Bay Area

Nobody wants to be deported from the United States, especially people with family in the country. If you are legally eligible for a U visa, obtaining one can be a way to avoid deportation. It is also a way for undocumented people to apply for legal immigration documents for the first time.

A U visa is specifically for non-U.S. citizens who have been hurt in a crime.

There are four requirements to qualify for a U visa, including:

  • You were a victim of a qualifying serious crime.
  • You were helpful in the police investigation and the prosecution of the crime.
  • You suffered severe emotional or physical abuse in conjunction with the crime.
  • You must be “admissible,” which means you cannot have a serious criminal history or a history of immigration violations (unless you are eligible for a “waiver” of your grounds of inadmissibility).
