Crime victims should not hesitate to report crimes because they fear removal from the United States or other negative consequences related to their immigration status. Established in 2000 under the Trafficking Victims Protection Act (TVPA), the U visa program gives people a chance to stay in this country when they cooperate with law enforcement to prosecute criminals. With three offices in the New York area, Pollack, Pollack, Isaac & DeCicco, LLP assists individuals who seek lawful residency in the United States after they’ve suffered serious harm at the hands of a criminal. Since 1955, we’ve given clients the chance to escape abuse and build a successful life.
Nearly 20 years since the passage of the TVPA, authorities, activists and immigration lawyers are still working to safeguard victims who have been exploited by criminals, including those who have forced them into sex work, debt bondage or employment in illegal conditions. We stand up for people who have been mistreated and will explain each facet of the U visa program, including:
If favorably adjudicated, the U visa grants permission to remain and work in the country for up to four years and allows beneficiaries to eventually apply for a green card, which conveys permanent resident status. Our immigration law attorneys are strong advocates who work to give undocumented immigrants who are crime victims the best chance to live without fear in this country. Even if you’re not sure that you or someone you know might qualify for a U visa, we can review the facts and outline what options are available.
Pollack, Pollack, Isaac & DeCicco, LLP advises clients on a full range of immigration-related matters, including applications for U visas and other types of authorizations that help individuals live and remain within the United States. Please call 800-223-2814 or contact us online today to schedule an appointment. We have offices in Manhattan and Peekskill.
