Call for Examples: Discretionary Denials of U Visa Adjustment Applications

ASISTA is collecting examples of discretionary denials of U vis adjustment applications to evaluate them for potential litigation. In particular, ASISTA seeks cases where:

  1. the negative conduct cited by USCIS in the denial predated the filing of the U visa application and was disclosed; AND
  2. any administrative appeals have been completed or waived.

If you have such an example, please contact either Gail at or Sejal at
