  • U-VISA application.

    Hello
    Everyone,

    I am new to this group and I have some questions about my u visa application. In August last year, I was physically assaulted and was punched in my left eye for three times and twice on my chin. The person who assaulted me also broke my left thumb during the assault. Immediately after assault, I stopped seeing from my left eye since there was a lot swelling and bleeding from a cut above my left eye. There was also a lot bleeding from the nose and left teethes. After the assault the guy ran away in his car, but somehow I did manage to run away to safer place. I called 911 and reported this incident, and about 10 min later Cops, EMS, and people from Fire department arrived, and started helping me with my injury. The police officer at the scene took my pictures for the police report and investigation. I was taken to hospital by EMS and doctor released me with report of severe swelling, and Orbital fracture in the left eye. The doctor also recommended to follow up with maxio facial specialist doctor for further treatment.
    I have followed up with recommended doctor and I was evaluated by him for more treatment from the physical assault. The doctor first got done MRI for my Left shoulder and neck, CT for the pain by my left eye orbital fracture, and recommended Physical Therapy for my left hand and left shoulder and neck. As of March 2017, I still suffer with my injuries from the physical assault after getting treatment for last six months. I am still going through severe pain in my neck, shoulder, left thumb and in the left eye. I have hired an immigration attorney in Dec-2016, and he helped me with filling my U-visa. I have applied for U-visa in Feb 2017, and waiting for my receipt.
    I am in United States on an F1-visa and studying for Engineering Degree in Fall 2016 semester. I had enrolled for four classes 12 credit hours to be a full time student and continued my F1 status. My severe pain from the injuries from the physical assault and medical treatment with doctor that semester let me behind in completing course work on time for one course in Fall 2016 semester. I had contacted the professor for several weeks, and emailed him proof of my medical treatment at the clinic. The professor never responded and dropped me from that course in November 2016 and I was maintaining only 9 credits hours since then. My F1 status has been terminated since I wasn’t maintaining 12 credit hours. I had always maintained my F1 status since I have come to USA for college education with an F1 Visa.
    My question is to everyone in the group, is there any way for me to request USCIS to approve my u-visa or DA faster? I know many of you in this group are waiting for more 3 years for DA, and I am very disappointed that everyone has to wait for this long to at least get DA approved. My treatment with physical assault injuries will go for another year, and I am worried that I might not be to drive to go for treatment, since my driver’s license is only valid to another few months. Since my F1- status is terminated, I might not be able to renew my driver’s license until my DA or U-Visa is approved. At this time, I am having high unpaid medical and school bills, and will not be able afford to get a cab to finish my treatment. I want to complete my education, but because of my severe pain from injuries I want to continue my education as a part time student. I am considering to apply for F1- status again, but I have to be a full time student and if I can’t maintain full time status I am afraid of getting my F1- status terminated again.
    I have also contacted the Police detective working on my case for any updates, but he informed me that the cameras around where I was physically assaulted were very blurry and not useful to investigate the case. I have sent my u-visa application along with all my medical records of injury and photos of injury from the assault. My another question is does USCIS review U-visa applications in the order they receive or do they review based on the seriousness of the crime? Getting u-visa approved is my last hope, since the guy who assaulted me has never been found and I might have to live with my injuries rest of my life. Since, I have come to US I have only one speeding violation and has never committed or was involved in any other crime. Please give me some suggestions.

    Thank You

    There is no way to request uscis to approve your application or DA faster. I am afraid you will have to wait even more than 3 years since you just applied, and the backlog growing up every month. Yes, Uscis review app in order they receive, seriousness of the crime doesn't matter in this aspect. I guess most of us have hard situation... Anyway I wish you all the best with your U visa process.

        You can go to welfare office at your city and meet social worker. Bring all your medical bills, passport, police report with you and ask that maybe they can help you for all your bills. and the bad new is there no way to make u visa processing time faster. If u apply 2017 maybe you will get your u visa in 2022. If you leave US, you can wait for the u visa abroad and fill i192 waiver to reenter US when your u visa approve. good luck
