What Are the Benefits of a U-Visa?

Individuals who are granted a U-visa obtain lawful status for four years, allowing them to work legally in the U.S. After being in U-visa status for three years, they become eligible to apply for lawful permanent status, commonly known as a "green card." 

It is important to note that, under certain circumstances, U-visa holders may also be able to assist specific family members in obtaining their own legal status. However, it is advisable to consult with a U-visa attorney to gain a comprehensive understanding of the individuals who can be petitioned and the associated process.
