Malden Immigration Lawyer for U-Visas
Nonimmigrant Visa for Crime Victims
If you have been the victim of a crime committed in the United States,
you can receive the protection you deserve while helping law enforcement
investigate and prosecute those responsible. The U Visa program is designed
to strengthen the efforts of law enforcement while better serving victims
of mental and physical abuse.
Am I eligible for a U Visa?
Victims of physical and mental abuse may qualify for U visas if they meet
certain criteria. U visa applicants must have information about the criminal
activity and be willing to provide it to law enforcement. Additionally,
they must have been helpful or agree to be helpful to the authorities
throughout the investigation and prosecution of the crime.
Qualifying crimes must have been committed in the US and include:
- Domestic violence
- Sexual assault or rape
- Trafficking or prostitution
- False imprisonment or kidnapping
- Extortion or blackmail
Additional crimes, similar crimes, and the attempt to commit such crimes
may also qualify a victim to apply for a U visa. At the Law Offices of

a U visa and can help you with the application process.
