      Thank you for your reply. I Wonder what about no weapon robbery? Is there no hope for positive decision?

        You should get different opinions from different lawyers,the reason why is simple,any greedy son of a *****,like my lawyer,will tell you what you want to hear in order to take your money,why do I tell you this? I file back in September 14' long story short I never qualified under U visa requirements but even knowing it my lawyer still said I could...paid him $8,000 plus USCIS fees so total was $10,000;so after RFE came a denial,he filed a motion to reopen,which just buys time to breath in peace,but after the final decision,I know I'll have some ice officers knocking on my door because according the new policies I'm deportable,the good thing is i already filed AOS and when that day comes I'll be a green card holder and with a smile on my face I'll tell them to get the **** outta my house...so be really careful with the devil in disguise,good luck

              Oh trust me,it's better to stay out of their range,they don't even know you exist right this moment,but once they take your biometrics and take all your info,I'm sure they'll find out how many social media accounts you got,it ain't panic that's how things work here,all it's resumed in one sentence..."if you weren't physically assault don't even think about it" that's one of the reasons I got a denial,USCIS requires physical evidence not statements on a letter,keep in touch and I'll let you know how that denial turns out,I hope it works out so people like you have a chance,but at this point I don't give a damn anymore,I filed adjustment of status and the only reason I'm still here in this forum is to help others like you to not to get in trouble

                It means adjustment of status though,that works for people like me that were admitted in the states with a work visa,once file uscis get your biometrics within 3 weeks,after that work permit within 3 months and 9 months later your green card

                    Jabalin I already applied for u visa 2,5 years ago... it was my husband who applied actually and I am derivative. But now when I finally read some of USCIS decision of the administrative appeals, I realized they all lied (attorneys) about our chances to get u visa and I feel like I already waisted so much time of my life for fake hope of better Life. Thank u so much for sharing your thoughts and experience. I very appreciate it.

                        hopefully you guys get it,i should be able to know by December the final decision,if not I'll have to wait till June 18',which sucks because It suppose to take no longer than 2 years to get a work permit through u visa,I had so many plans and all of it has gone bad,day by day I'm loosing the chance to make my dream come true and that ain't a green card or the citizenship;trust me I've lost many things just for one greedy heartless bastard arttorney,I really don't give a damn about money it's the time I've lost and the good shots I had and now they're gone,if he'd have done the things right I wouldn't be here seeing the people I want to be with from the distance,even though i know the outcome might not be favorable to me I got a tiny amount of hope,and when that's gone we're nothing,so stay positive its over until it's over!!!

                          I hope someone can give some advise. My husband applied back in 2014 and got rfe asking for medical records of what happened to him. Unfortunately he did not save medical records at the time of the arm robbery. We were unable to recover records from hospital because they are only required to keep medical records for 7 years and my husband's incident happened over 12 years ago. I wonder if we have a chance at all? Anyone has had similar cases? Thank you.

                            Its unfortunate that the hospital is not able to provide you with medical records. Without these records USCIS will have a hard time aproving him. You will to write a letter explaining why you were unable gather the medical records of incident. I hope you have a lawyer helping you out with this.

                              Hello Eri,

                              that incorrect, the hospitals have to maintain records for more than 7 years. I was physically assaulted on my head by Gun butt. i was taken to hospital for my wounds. this was in the year 2000 and i was able to retrieve hospital records in 2014, ( 14 years later).
