My daughter suffered from sexual assault many people have told us we can try to get a u visa from this incident ? We never really thought of it that way all we wanted was for our daughter to be okay but with all these new laws and new president all we want now is to be good and together as a family ?
Yes, in many cases parents of a U.S. citizen child crime victim may apply for U visas as indirect victims. If your daughter is not a U.S. citizen, she can apply for the U visa and you may be able to be a derivative on her application assuming she is under the age of 21. You need to show that you are cooperating in the investigation and prosecution of the criminal activity. Please consult with an immigration attorney to fully evaluate your eligibility for the U visa.
