I think I am eligible for a T-visa. Will I definitely get one if I apply?

Not necessarily.  There is a limit on the number of T-visas available nationally (5,000), which means that even if you satisfy all of the requirements, you could still be denied a T-visa.  If you are otherwise qualified to receive a T-visa, but are denied one because of the limit, then you will be placed on a waiting list.*  For more information on how to apply for a T-visa, see How do I apply for a T-visa?
