The Calaveras County District Attorney’s Office encourages undocumented immigrants who are victims of crime to report the incident to law enforcement. We are only concerned about the details of the crime, not your immigration status.
A U-Visa status (also known as U nonimmigrant status) is designed to provide lawful status to noncitizen crime victims who have assisted, are assisting, or are willing to assist the authorities in investigating or prosecuting crimes that were committed against them. The main purpose of the U-Visa is to encourage undocumented crime victims to help law enforcement investigate and prosecute crimes without fear of being deported.
For more information about U-Visas and the forms you need to apply, please visit the Department of Homeland Security or contact the Victim Services program.
If you believe you are a qualifying victim, please read the I-918 Supplement B instructions, then mail or deliver a completed I-918 Supplement B, U Nonimmigrant Status Certification form to the Calaveras County District Attorney’s Office for review.
For additional information regarding U-Visas, please contact us.
