Get Dedicated Legal Representation from Diamondback Legal
Unfortunately, domestic violence, human trafficking, and sexual assault crimes still run rampant across the globe. However, in 2000, the United States passed the Victims of Trafficking and Violence Protection Act in conjunction with the establishment of the U-Visa to give aid to immigrants who are victims of serious crimes. Securing a visa can be a complicated, time-consuming process. A mistake on a visa application can not only slow the entire process down but can also result in you getting denied the visa you deserve. At Diamondback Legal, we know how stressful the visa application process is. We can help relieve some of the burdens and help you through the process from start to finish. When you hire one of our U-Visas attorneys in Phoenix, you can be sure your needs are always being put first.
