Crime Victims – U-Visa and VAWA

Since 2000, people who have been victims of domestic abuse as well as certain other crimes can seek protection from immigration when law enforcement verifies that a crime has taken place.  Family members can be included in this type of application.

Our office assists with obtaining certification from law enforcement for a U visa (I-981B) and requesting the U visa from immigration.  The U visa path is a long one – it can be 4 or more years before permanent residence is achieved.   Many U visa applicants have a complicated criminal or immigration history which would block most visa applications, but not the U visa process.

Status under VAWA or the Violence Against Women Act may be requested when an immigrant can show domestic or other abuse by a U.S. citizen spouse.  We can help determine if this path is for you.

What Our Clients Say

  • “After a U.S. Senator could not help us get out of our country, someone told our friend in Port Townsend to contact Seifert Law Offices to help. The office immediately started my case. In less than a month the paper work was done and we were out of Guinea by January 2001. Had we not obtained the visas and stayed in Guinea we would not be alive to tell this story. Thank God we are now in the States, united with our daughter, sound and safe and thank God for Seifert Law Offices.”
