My question is about u visa. I was robbed at gunpoint in Sacramento back in 2010 at my workplace, had reported the crime and have been cooperating with law ever since. I have a clean back background, meaning never been arrested for any crime and so on. I did not know that I could apply for U visa until towards the end of 2011 through talk radio.
However upon request the police department sent me a copy of my police report. But when my case worker handed me a packet of forms to send for certifation, I received a call from a different sergeant that they will not be issuing me a certificate even though I qualify. The sergeant with whom I have been cooperating with about the crime, told me he didn't understand why they won't issue me the certificate. So now I don't know what to do next..pl
You have many options. You can keep trying to convince this sergeant to sign form I-918 B, if he continue to refuse, try the district attorney, if not try the judge who is trying the case. Do not give up there is a way and some one will sign the form for you.

Get a lawyer to help you. You need certification -- without that, your U visa application will not be approved. Also, while you are able to submit the U visa application without the certification if not immediately available, you have only 6 months to submit certification or your U visa petition will be considered abandoned.
