    Lawyer agrees


    Answered . Yes, it is likely that you can apply for him as a derivative of your U visa. He cannot have been the perpetraitor of the crime, and an attorney should assess the case to make sure there are no inadmissibility issues. If there are, he may be able to get a waiver. Best of luck to you.
