USCIS sent a Request for Additional Evidence (“RFE”) to the notario, who requested more money from the client before she would fix the mistakes.
The notario filed the RFE response but left out a required form (Form I-192). The case was denied and the client came to us to fix everything.
We filed a motion to reopen explaining that our client did not speak English and the notario mishandled the case. USCIS agreed to reopen the case.
Two years later, a U visa became available when the fiscal year began, and we just received the approval for the U visa.
The U visa was approved for four years, but our client will be eligible to adjust status to permanent resident three years from now.
If you have been the victim of a major crime and cooperated with law enforcement to try to arrest and/or convict the criminals, you might be eligible for a U visa. Contact Nelson & Nuñez to schedule a consultation so we can evaluate your case and see if the U visa is a viable option.
