Víctimas de violencia doméstica y delitos criminales – Sí hay opciones para personas indocumentadas

28 de mayo de 2014

 

Existen varias opciones para aquellas víctimas de violencia doméstica u otros delitos graves que no tienen documentos legales en los E.E.U.U. para solicitar una visa o cambio de estatus.

 

Una opción es el estatus otorgado por la Visa U. El estatus no inmigrante U (también conocido como Visa U) es otorgado a personas que han sido víctimas de abuso físico o mental y están dispuestas a apoyar a las autoridades denunciado dicha actividad criminal ocurrida dentro de los E.E.U.U. La victima podrá incluir a miembros de su familia ya sea esposos, hijos, hermanas solteras y hermanos menores de 18 años, madre y padre.

 

El trámite para solicitar la Visa U debe de ser por medio de la Forma Migratoria I-918 entre otros requisitos. El o la solicitante deberá haber sufrido un sustancial abuso físico o mental provocado por una actividad criminal, en una o varias de las siguientes categorías: violación, tortura, incesto, violencia doméstica, asalto sexual, abuso sexual, explotación sexual, hostigamiento, trato de esclavo, secuestro, extorsión, asesinato, asalto criminal, manipulación de testigos, entre otros.

 

Las peticiones deberán incluir información de cómo las victimas podrán ayudar a los oficiales policiales, a un juez, u una agencia gubernamental proveyendo detalles del crimen. Una víctima puede participar en la investigación y/o la prosecución del individuo que cometió el crimen.

 

La victima además deberá de estar dispuesta a trabajar con los oficiales policiales, el juez, o la agencia gubernamental proveyendo información relacionada a al delito.

 

Parte del Formulario I-918 deberá ser certificado por un agente o autoridad federal local o estatal, o por un juez estatal o federal a cargo de la investigación donde el solicitante es la víctima. Tome en cuenta que sin esta certificación la solicitud de la Visa U no podrá tramitarse.

 

Sin embargo, la certificación por sí sola no garantiza la elegibilidad de todos los hechos a considerarse. La certificación individual deberá ser el eje para expedir la visa U y si en algún momento la víctima no coopera con los esfuerzos de la ley, la certificación será retirada. Para las víctimas de familiares inmediatos de ciudadano o residentes de los Estados Unidos existe el programa de VAWA (Violencia en contra de la mujer).

 

¿Cuál es la diferencia entre VAWA y la Visa U? La diferencia entre estos dos beneficios es que la Visa U requiere participación en la investigación o convicción de un crimen cometido en contra de la víctima pero no requiere que el agresor sea ciudadano americano o residente del país. El agresor puede ser indocumentado. Lo más importante es la ayuda proveída por la victima a las autoridades. Sin embargo, VAWA requiere que el agresor sea ciudadano americano o residente. Pero la víctima no necesariamente debe haber participado en la investigación o convicción del agresor.

 

La persona que ha a sido agredido o si a sufrido crueldad o abuso extremo por sus padres ciudadanos americanos o residentes también califica. También, usted puede aplicar si fue víctima de crueldad o abuso extremo por su hijo/a ciudadano americano mayor de 18 años. La diferencia es que el hijo/a agresor debe ser ciudadano americano y no residente permanente.

 

Para calificar para VAWA no es absolutamente necesario reportar el abuso a la policía, pero si es beneficial. La aplicación de VAWA requiere mucha evidencia del abuso. Usted tiene que comprobar que el abuso fue cruel y extremo. Debe incluir reportes de la policía, de investigadores, y/o records de corte. Si no los tiene, tendrá que suministrar cartas juradas de personas que tienen conocimiento propio del abuso y violencia.

 

Estas solo son algunas de las muchas preguntas que usted puede tener. Para más información sobre este tipo de caso contacte a un abogado de inmigración que le podrá aconsejar de la manera correcta.

FAQs - FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Il existe des dizaines de types de visas différents disponibles en vertu des dispositions de la loi sur l’immigration et la nationalité (INA), mais ils peuvent tous être classés dans l’une des deux catégories suivantes : les visas d’immigrant et les visas de non-immigrant. Le premier type de visa est destiné aux personnes qui espèrent établir leur résidence permanente avec une Green Card et peut-être même suivre la voie de la naturalisation et de la citoyenneté. Le second est destiné à ceux qui n’envisagent qu’une visite temporaire aux États-Unis, par exemple dans le but de mener des affaires ou de suivre des cours.

L’INA fixe des limites au nombre de personnes qui seront autorisées à immigrer aux États-Unis chaque année en utilisant certains types de visas, tandis que d’autres visas sont illimités. Les visas d’immigration familiale pour les parents immédiats des citoyens américains sont disponibles de manière illimitée, tandis que des quotas annuels sont fixés pour les parents des résidents permanents légaux et la famille élargie des citoyens, avec un quota maximum de 480 000. Le nombre de visas d’immigration à des fins d’emploi est limité à 140 000 par an.

Parmi les voies d’accès à la citoyenneté, l’on trouve le service dans l’armée américaine et l’adoption, mais un grand pourcentage des personnes accédant à la citoyenneté le font par le biais du processus de naturalisation. Les qualifications de base pour la naturalisation sont les suivantes :

  • Vivre aux États-Unis en tant que résident permanent depuis 5 ans (ou 3 ans pour le conjoint d’un citoyen américain)
  • Être âgé d’au moins 18 ans
  • Avoir vécu dans l’État où vous allez demander la citoyenneté pendant au moins trois mois avant la date de la demande
  • Être physiquement présent dans ce pays pendant au moins la moitié des cinq dernières années
  • Maintenir une résidence continue dans ce pays à partir de la date de dépôt de votre demande de naturalisation
  • Pouvoir lire, écrire et parler l’anglais

– Avoir une compréhension de base du gouvernement américain et de l’éducation civique.
Il est par ailleurs nécessaire de fournir la preuve que vous êtes une personne de bonne moralité et que vous êtes attaché aux principes de la Constitution américaine. Nous pouvons vous aider à prouver ces facteurs, ainsi qu’à préparer votre demande et vous aider à vous préparer aux tests.

En juin 2012, l’administration Obama a ordonné au ministère de la Sécurité intérieure (DHS) de commencer à appliquer une politique appelée “action différée pour les arrivées d’enfants” (DACA). Dans le cadre de cette action différée, le DHS exerce un pouvoir discrétionnaire dans l’exécution des lois relatives à l’expulsion et au renvoi des immigrants en situation irrégulière aux États-Unis. L’action différée n’est pas une modification de la loi existante, mais plutôt un changement dans la manière dont la loi est appliquée. Vous pouvez bénéficier d’une aide au titre du DACA si vous aviez moins de 31 ans le 15 juin 2012, si vous êtes arrivé aux États-Unis avant votre 16e anniversaire, si vous avez résidé de manière continue dans ce pays depuis le 15 juin 2007 et si vous êtes actuellement scolarisé ou si vous avez déjà obtenu un diplôme d’études secondaires ou un certificat d’enseignement général (GED), entre autres critères. Grâce à l’action différée, vous pourrez peut-être éviter d’être expulsé, bien qu’elle n’accorde aucun changement de statut d’immigration.

Lors de l’examen des demandes de visa d’immigrant, les services de citoyenneté et d’immigration des États-Unis (USCIS) prennent en compte les liens du futur immigrant avec les États-Unis et les raisons pour lesquelles il veut ou doit venir vivre dans ce pays. Par exemple, une demande d’immigration familiale ne sera pas approuvée si le ressortissant étranger n’a pas de parents immédiats tels que son conjoint, sa mère ou son père, un enfant ou un frère ou une sœur vivant déjà ici en tant que citoyen ou titulaire d’une Green Card. Une demande d’immigration à des fins d’emploi a plus de chances d’être approuvée si le demandeur a une offre d’emploi dans ce pays et s’il vient pour occuper un poste qui ne peut raisonnablement pas être pourvu sur le marché du travail local. Un ressortissant étranger qui fuit les persécutions dans son pays d’origine peut se voir accorder un visa d’immigrant en tant que réfugié ou demandeur d’asile.

Il existe de nombreuses stratégies pour contester une mesure d’expulsion. Si l’expulsion proposée est basée sur une condamnation pénale, il peut être possible de faire appel de la condamnation afin de la faire annuler. Une autre option consiste à demander l’annulation de l’expulsion, un type d’aide à l’immigration disponible pour les personnes de bonne moralité et dont l’expulsion soumettrait un membre de la famille, citoyen ou résident permanent, à des difficultés extrêmes. La clé du succès pour arrêter l’expulsion est de prendre des mesures immédiates en engageant un avocat de notre cabinet, spécialisé dans l’immigration en Virginie, dès que possible. Contactez-nous dès maintenant au cabinet Fayad Law, P.C. pour une consultation confidentielle et pour commencer à traiter votre dossier !

My husband and I are very pleased with the attention and care we received from the Fayad Law team — specifically from Aida and Oscar. They assisted us for both permanent residence and naturalization. They did more than just complete paperwork. We felt listened to, guided, and accompanied through our unique immigration journey. As well, their presence and advocacy for us at the naturalization interview turned a bureaucratic mess into a hiccup. Thank you, all!

I had an exceptional experience with Fayad Law, P.C. and attorney Aida Farahani. Aida and her team of paralegals, especially Oscar and Mariana, were incredibly kind, helpful and quick to respond to emails. They provided excellent support throughout the entire process of my mother’s naturalization application, including the interview. Aida’s professionalism and reassurance, combined with the dedication and efficiency of her paralegals, made the journey smooth and stress-free. One thing that truly stood out was their clear communication regarding what we could expect at each step of the process. I highly recommend Fayad Law, Aida Farahani, and her amazing team for all immigration related matters. Thank you for your exceptional service.

We have worked with Fayad Law since 2014. Initially they helped us secure an H-1B visa for an employee, and recently that employee’s “green card” was approved!This was quite a journey, and a very big undertaking for a small business. Throughout it all they were there to guide us and make sure that we overcame all the many obstacles that were placed in our way.Thank you so much to Nash and your expert team. Your firm serves an important role in furthering the American dream, and we really appreciate you.

I had a free half hour consultation with Ms. Ingy Giurguis (who speaks both English and Arabic). In just 20 minutes, I had already changed my perspective about my file. It was an eye opening experience. I am seriously thinking of transferring my file to their office. Ms. Giurguis is knowledgeable, well experienced, and good hearted. She was honest with me. The whole thing was like a paradigm shift. This is not an easy thing to achieve, especially given my hard-to-persuade character! I am giving just 4 stars because I haven’t yet dealt with the office in depth. As soon as I do transfer my file, see how they really handle it, the thing I am sure they would do properly, I am going to Five Star Rating!
