I had applied for u-visa for DV. my spouse came to know about it.his criminal case is pending,charges are about to get dismissed. and he saw the certification from the prosecutor. Does he/his attorney question the prosecutor regarding the certification or change the prosecutor's mind,who signed it.
It's really hard to say why a prosecuting law enforcement agency decides to prosecute a case or not. The standard for U visa cases is the you must have information that could be useful if the police or DA's office tries to prosecute a crime and that you're willing to help the prosecution. You've done that, so you should be fine. I have more than one client with facts very similar to yours and they are now living safely and legally in the US with U visas.
I agree. However, you may want to consider whether it is best to seek a domestic abuse type claim, where it is unclear how long the U visa will take to process. Often, with enough evidence, a form I-360 petition may have proven more efficient for someone in your situation. Good luck.
