  • U Visa Applied Feb 10th

    Hello Guys,

    Have applied to U Visa just this week. I am currently on F1 visa.

    Once DA is approved and an EAD is issued, What would my status be ?

    If my F1 expires by then, what are the options I have ? Also whats the wait time cuurently..

    Thanks in advance .

    Hello Bob, just be very patient and prepare for a long long waiting... right now people wait 2.5 - 3 years for DA, those who applied between 2014- 2015, and it may be totally different in your case since you just applied and each month the backlog become longer and longer.

      Hi Bob,

      I was in the same position back in 2014, when I applied for U visa I was on F1. My attorney told me that once you apply for the U visa u fall out of F1 and I am no longer on F1 status. She told me if I want I can continue my study as F1 but technically I fell of the F1 since applied for the U visa. So, I stopped studying since it was very hard for me to pay the tuition at that time and I just kept waiting on U visa. after 1.5 year I got DA which was in FEB 2015. Since than I am on DA. While being on DA I do not have any status. But I can work, can get DL and file tax. Basically DA is just a protection against deportation and practically you are qualified for the U visa. But still after getting DA they can change their mind and can deny you U visa. Once you get Denied than you do not have any option left. That is my story.

      I am on DA right now and working. You can consult your attorney for better answer. Hope this helps.

      Thanks

        Hello Scorpion,

        Thanks for your response. But F1 will be valid till you get a U visa( as long as you do whats required under f1 rules). DA and EAD wont change your status. Only once U visa is issued, F1 will be void.

        This is what I know from my attorney and the internet .

          I am not sure about the F1 thing yet. I just did what attorney suggested me. Thanks for your reply.

          Best of luck.
