U Visa Webinar Series: Qualifying Criminal Activity

Thursday, November 18th 2021 from 2-3pm EST

(11am-12pm PST/12-1pm MST/1-2pm CST)


Join ASISTA for a deep-dive discussion on U visa qualifying crimes. Congress created the U nonimmigrant visa to protect victims of qualifying crimes who have suffered substantial mental or physical abuse due to the crime and are willing to help law enforcement in the investigation or prosecution of the criminal activity. But how do you show that a client has actually suffered  a qualifying crime?  What if the crime listed on the police report does not match the enumerated crimes at INA 101(a)(15)(U)(iii)? In this webinar we will discuss the analytical framework for showing that a qualifying crime has occurred.

Speaker: Amy Cheung, ASISTA Senior Legal Counsel.

Note: Pending 1 hr. Texas CLE credit.
