With a dedication to serving clients globally and a mission to ensure the law supports those in need, the firm stands as a pillar for individuals going through the complexities of immigration following traumatic experiences.

Understanding the U Visa

The U Visa is a nonimmigrant visa specifically designed for victims of crimes who have suffered substantial mental or physical abuse and are willing to assist law enforcement or government officials in the investigation or prosecution of criminal activity. This provision under U.S. immigration law is not just a legal mechanism; it's a lifeline allowing individuals to step out of the shadows and embrace a future in the United States without fear.

Eligibility for the U Visa encompasses a range of criteria, aimed at ensuring that those who genuinely need protection receive it. If you've been a victim of qualifying criminal activities, such as domestic violence, sexual assault, or trafficking, attorney Wogwu is here to guide you through the eligibility maze. The goal is not only to determine your qualification but also to assist you in compiling the comprehensive documentation required to support your application.

The Application Process

Applying for a U Visa is a process that demands meticulous attention to detail, understanding, and patience. From completing the necessary Form I-918 to gathering the required evidence that proves your eligibility, attorney Wogwu stands by your side, ensuring that every step is taken with care and precision. This journey involves collaborating closely with law enforcement agencies to obtain a certification of your helpfulness in the investigation or prosecution of the crime.

The path to obtaining a U Visa can seem daunting, filled with bureaucratic hurdles and stringent requirements. However, with attorney Wogwu's guidance, what might initially appear as insurmountable challenges transform into manageable steps towards achieving your goal of legal status in the United States.

Life After the U Visa

Securing a U Visa is more than just a relief; it's the first step towards a more stable and secure future. Holders of a U Visa are granted temporary legal status in the U.S., along with work authorization. Yet, the journey doesn't end there. After three years of continuous physical presence in the United States on a U Visa, you may be eligible to apply for permanent residency (Green Card).
