I have applied 4 a U Visa & I have included my husband as derivative. Our son, who is an American Citizen, was recently diagnosed with a developmental disability & is also non-verbal. Because he is an American Citizen, he has access 2 health care & the therapy he needs, but unfortunately b/c of my husband's and mine undocumented status, we do not qualify 4 any type of governmental assistance, nor are able 2 purchase health insurance for ourselves to be part of essential family therapy and ASL classes. We r desperate 2 find a way 2 communicate with him & and have even purchased a few programs, but they are NOT specifically targeted to help our son. Base on those factors, may I request our case be expedited? My son's welfare truly depends on getting ALL (including family) therapy he needs...
I am sorry to hear your story.
Unfortunately, every U visa applicant is a victim ... some with more compelling hardship stories than yours.
Don't refuse to put your name on the non-profit agency's waiting list just because it is long .. eventually they will call you in for an interview.
