  • U visa work permit

    New to the board and I have a couple questions. So I keep reading mixed updates regarding u visa employment application approval, some got it as soon as 6 months after filling their U Visa application and some are still waiting after 2 years. Can anyone explain to me how the processing works? I personally know two people who had their work permits 6 months after filling their application.
    Does it depend on where you're from? Some cases are faster than others? Does it depend on how many forms you sent since the rules changed recently?
    How long did it take for you to get DA?

    Also, how long did it take until your case got added to the system? I can't seem to be able to track mine.

    Thanks

    This is the first time I heard of someone getting a ead in 6 months. We've been waiting 28 months. If you are placed in a waiting list (Deferred action) you can apply for an ead and it normally takes 90 days to obtain it. I know they've changed the rules (long after we applied) and you now can applied for ead (based on Deffered action + based on U visa). So, if you did it using the new rules, once you get your deferred action you also get the ead.

      1) Nowdays is taking 2 years to fully process a U-visa case. Does NOT depend on where you file from or come from.
      2) after filing you case check online status using your form i765 employment authorization form. The i918 form will not be available for online status chech due to privacy.
      3) DA deffered action is granted after you case is reviewed by USCIS which takes 2 years. If approved, you must file an additional employment authorization form and wait 90 days for you EAD card which is valid for 2 years.
      4) when a U visa becomes available, USCIS will mail you another EAD card automatically which will be good for 4 years.

          I think your husband had a different case. Was he injured badly by the crime? Otherwise it doesn't happen with others. What was the crime? Which state you are from? I am just asking because I can see all the time you are saying that you guys got the deffered action. This is good but it doesn't make sense to say the same thing to everyone and make them more frustrated.

                  I dont believe your purpose for sharing information is positive.I too observed that you are on other forums sharing that single statement,but i question the factuality of it: firstly you stated your husband got DA, in cases like these if your husband got it,you would also and it would be referred to as "we " got Da,and if you dont need DA,that implies your documented which makes you more questionable.I believe you are an internet troll and you do this for enjoyment.For those who are still waiting ,we are in this together,hopefully we hear good news soon.

                    Let's say she is saying the truth. It makes me angry that people that applied long after us are getting DA, it's fu#@ing unfair.There it is, I'm being completely honest.

                      Im not an internet troll. When they ask a question about if anyone has recieved anything this year or to that affect i simply reply with what info i have. Several people on the forum had me send them the paper WE recieved to show the proof that it only took US 12 months to be granted deffered action per his U Visa application. In other post they were asking about timelines - i also gave that info. Im sorry so many people are and have been waiting to hear any news. But thats what these FORUMS are for , to share what info you have that can be validated and to give hope to others. Im not sorry if you are offended by my post. Its a quick response to let the original person asking the question know what i personally have knowledge of. Have a nice day. 😊

                            yes u guys! maybe this has everything to do with the nature of the crime! maybe they are actually studying the cases and the more weight there is on the case the more they put it as a priority! think about it... if someone who got mugged by a x bf/gf should be the priority for USCIS officers to work on or someone who actually went through a lot of trauma, should be the priority. Also think about the fact that first applied first approved is th basis of U visa cap.... but first applied first prioritized for DA isn't!!

                              my lawyer told me if I left the country while waiting for a U-visa when I applied for it During being in the US it will nullify everything...!!!

                              but again think about the nature of crime thread I just started
