The U visa was established under the Trafficking Victims Protection Act of 2000 (TVPA), and was subsequently reauthorized in 2003, 2005, and 2008 (Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act, or TVPRA). It was created as humanitarian relief for a vulnerable population, most of whom do not have lawful status in the United States. It provides legal status to victims of certain serious crimes who have suffered substantial physical or mental harm and can document cooperation with law enforcement. If favorably adjudicated, the U visa grants permission to remain and work in the U.S. for up to four years, and allows beneficiaries to eventually apply for permanent resident status.
In a variety of cases, the experienced immigration lawyers at the immigration law firm of Saltrese Faville DeSeguin llc have successfully assisted crime victims to obtain U status in the United States.
