  • Exceptional circumstances;
  • Due to delays in consular processing; or
  • Automatically extended upon the filing and pendency of an application for a Green Card.

Applying for a Green Card

  • You have been physically present in the United States for a continuous period of at least three years while in U status, and
  • You have not unreasonably refused to provide assistance to law enforcement since you received your U visa.
