Carrollton Immigration Attorneys Helping Victims of Crime

Serving the People of Denton County & Beyond

Victims of crime may be eligible for U nonimmigrant status, or a U visa. This status is for individuals who have suffered mental and physical abuse and are helpful to officials investigating or prosecuting criminal activity. At Nathan Christensen P.C., we help victims of crime obtain U nonimmigrant status in Denton County and the surrounding areas.

If you were the victim of a crime, call (972) 497-1017 to schedule an initial consultation to determine if this visa is an option in your situation.

The Purpose of the U Visa

undefinedThe U nonimmigrant visa was created by Congress with the passage of the Victims of Trafficking and Violence Protection Act. Prior to the passage of this legislation, crime victims who were in the United States illegally were often afraid to report crimes. With the U visa, victims can assist law enforcement without fear, which benefits both the individual and law enforcement officials.

The legislation helps law enforcement agencies investigate and prosecute cases including, but not limited to:

In addition to helping law enforcement, this legislation offers protection for victims of crime who have suffered substantial mental and physical abuse and are willing to help law enforcement authorities who are better equipped to investigate and prosecute criminal activity and to serve victims of serious crimes. Our immigration attorneys can help you determine if you qualify for this visa.

Eligibility for U Nonimmigrant Status

You may be eligible for a U visa if you have been the victim of a crime and suffered substantial mental or physical abuse as a result of the criminal activity. If you have information about the criminal activity and are helpful or likely to be helpful to law enforcement officials investigating or prosecuting the crime, and the crime occurred in the United States or violated U.S. laws, you may qualify for U nonimmigrant status. Individuals who are younger than 16 or unable to provide information due to a disability, may have a parent, guardian, or friend assist on their behalf.

Call (972) 497-1017 to schedule an initial consultation.

“I’ve been working on various immigration requirements for the better part of 10 years now & I can say with absolute certainty that Nathan is the best lawyer I’ve encountered within that time (and I’ve met a few). Right from the beginning he made sure I understood my rights and the road ahead, providing a step-by-step guide to make my applications go as smoothly as possible. He was always available to meet and discuss my case, while also staying in contact via email/phone if I couldn’t make it in. Thanks to Nate I now have my Permanent Residency established and I look forward to returning to him in the near future to begin applying for Citizenship.”
