  • How do you survive? What can I legally do or get?

    Hi, I have been living off you guy's posts and hopes.. i'm in NYC.. struggling hard

    Can anyone help me imagine a time frame please? Anything legal I can give a potential employer for potential timeframe?(what else can i give him)
    Applied March 2015
    Request for additional evidence May 2015
    Biometrics August 2015
    Nothing since

    On the processing times chart which we can't rely on, are we looking at U Visa processing time(iin 2014) or i-765 EAD times as the EAD comes first right?
    I can't get a job and struggling very hard...any tips, advice, anything my lawyer who never answers my calls or does anything, can he do anything?? what can i do?
    Please and thanks

    Hi Dreaming92,

    Everyone who has applied for U visa has or will gone through the same pain like yours. You can`t do anything until you get DA. After DA only you can get EAD. I know it is very hard for one to survive without a JOB but unfortunately that is true. The problem with U visa applicants is getting worse and worse, no one can do anything at the moment. If you have issue with your lawyer than I suggest to change or may be he/she knows that nothing can be done at this point so not replying. Have faith and hope for the best.

    Thanks

        I applied May22nd 2015. I probably won't hear anything until July 2018 or so. I recently turned down 2 GREAT job offer, Both of which is a dream job for anyone in my field. I invested $92K in my education and rightnow my wife and I run our cleaning business which doesn't require legal status. If you are having a hard time in NYC to find work, find a better place to live and DO NOT rely on this U visa application. Or else you The must frustrating years of your life are yet to come.

              Someone I know friend got her DA last month,she applied in Dec2014,I doubt it will take another year for a response,no one can really say for sure when anyone will get Da.

                  Hey guys I applied January 2014 and received my visa yesterday 3-13-17. Don’t give up.

                  Someone posted this on another forum,hopefully this can give peace to someone who applied around that time.
