  • Would filing U Visa interfere with I-130?

    I wasn't sure if this was best posted in Family or U visa, so I posted in both.
    Hi
    My parents filed I-130 for me in Feb 2011.
    Receipt and priority date March 2011
    Approved (I-797) in 2014
    Going by the USCIS website, i'm looking at 1 more year until my priority date is here.
    I was outside of the country on filing.
    I came over on vacation with my kids, to help my mom while she recovered from surgery. She had to have more emergency surgeries.
    I stayed to help...which incurred over staying of visa.
    A couple of years later I married a USC. I did not apply for I-485. He strung me along, thought he could take advantage because i'D be too afraid to speak. A crime was committed, myself being the victim.
    The DA suggested I file for a U visa.
    Would this hurt my I-130 case which my priority date should be here in about 12 months.....or will the U Visa filing help me?
    Thanks in advance

    Does anyone know or does anyone have a similar case? I'm not sure whether to file my U visa petition or not, and we know time is of the essence.
    Also, do I file my I-765, plus two more for my children, along with original application?
    Thank you in advance

      I dont think so , many I-130 petitions approved has been granted regardless of the over stay , they are required to go abroad to finalize the precess in a consulate or if they qualify , file for adjustment of status .
      But don't relaying in my comment , consult an attorney .

        Thanks for replying.
        I have sent the u-visa application in.
        We'll see what happens.

        I have an attorney, it's hard to get a hold of him, just thought I would ask here.
