  • U Visa Need Your Opinion!!!

    I came to America in october 2013, crossed the border and got detained at an US immigration detention center while in jail i asked for political asylum. In jail i got an attorney and helped me get out of immigration jail with a bond, i paid the bond and eventually got out this is in 2013 guys but in 2014 i was robbed with a gun and applied for U-VISA in march 2015 now i have to go to court in September of 2017 this year because i was caught crossing the border in 2013 they gave court i have to appear my attorney told me to not be scare to go to court because all she's going to do is to ask more time to the judge so that way my U-VISA case is approved or denied My question is should i be scare to go to court for an assylum hearing? What can happen in court? What do you guys think?

    Your lawyer is right,almost all actions are forgiven under u visa, you might get DA before September,my application is in Feb2015,let us know when you get application updates.

      Yes. Almost all things are forgiven but not severe crime like rape, murder, extortion and major is DUI. Never get DUI. Its very easy to get into the DUI trap.

          You have nothing to worry about,I believe you will get a response by then and even if not,you have not really committed a "crime "as listed above,just stay out of trouble.

              Hi Servais, my husband also is in removal proceedings. I know it's so stressing every time you have to appear in the court but right now I can say you don't have to worry. In our case the judge just administratively closed proceedings. I guess, because of waiting for u visa. It's good chance that this will happen in your case too. Just be prepared with your attorney to show the judge that you are good moral haracter person etc. Best of luck

                  His last court was in January this year, he was guite a few times in court... since 2010. He applied for u visa in April 2015. His case is little similar but not the same, as he was in the court for different reasons. But I believe you should be treated similar because of u visa pending app.

                    So did he ask for more time since he has a u visa pending? What exactly did the judge said?

                      His attorney tryed to close his case but it didn't happened. It was around the time when we started completing our u visa petition. Judge gave him another 4 months (because I was 8 months pregnant and our lawyer asked for more time for us) but judge said that if nothing happen till next time we have to leave. So we send our u visa application and waited but one month before court they send letter that they changed the date from March 2015 to 2018. We were shocked but that's what happened. But in November 2016 they again send leyter that they want to see him in January 2017. So he came with attorney, who mentioned that we are petitioners of u visa, and judge said that the case will be administratively closed.

                            I saw the case of this man,who became a naturalized citizen and he had 17 DUI'S on his criminal record,so depending on who you hired as your attorney and who your attorney knows! I was told once by an attorney that I wouldn't ever be able to become a citizen because I have a DUI in my record from 1995,but the aforementioned case is a proof of how hiring a good attorney it makes a lot of difference.
