Roberto and Rosa, immigrants from an island of the Dominican Republic, immigrated to the United States in 2015. A year later, the couple was the victim of a crime. One night, one of their children was assaulted and sustained severe injuries as a result. The couple’s son was a United States Citizen, but the couple was in this country without legal status. The couple went through a long process of cooperating with the local police and the district attorney office to get the perpetrator to justice. The couple came to our office for the assistance of a U-Visa Application. Our office assisted the couple in obtaining the police certification and gathering all evidence and supporting documents and completing the application for the U-Visa Process.
The problem with this case is getting the certification from the police or the district attorney. As part of the U-Visa application, the applicant is required to submit a certification from the police or district attorney attesting to the fact that the applicant cooperated in the resolution of the crime. It is important to hire an attorney that has a good relationship with law enforcement officials to ensure a higher success in getting the certification from the police. We can assist you with this process. Have you been a victim of a crime and you think you may qualify for a U-Visa? Give us a call.
