Though no conviction has been obtained, it does not mean that the crime did not happen. She can contact the Detective and have him sign the certification that states that she is still cooperating with the investigation. Alternatively, Child Protective Services was probably involved and that agency can sign the certification as well. She can consult with an experienced immigration attorney or seek the help of non-profits such as http://www.publiccounsel.org/practice_areas?id=.... Good luck.
I agree with attorney Javier. A crime happened and so she only has the problem of proving this fact. If records were destroyed, then she needs to go to each agency who was involved at the time and report the incident. Take whatever evidence and information she may have with her and inquire. Once she has exhausted her contacts, then speak with a qualified immigration attorney to help determine whether the evidence is enough to proceed, or what more can be done to help strengthen your case. Kind regards,
You need to have her contact a legal service agency who can assist her with the U visa process. She can also contact a BIA approved agency who can assist her with the application process. The U visa is a form of non immigration visa which requires specific requirements including cooperation with law enforcement. This is a visa that requires the assisatnce of an experienced attorney or BIA approved advocate. good luck.
