VAWA (VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN ACT) PETITIONS
Are you the survivor of abuse by your lawful permanent resident or U.S. citizen spouse, ex-spouse, child, or parent? If so, there might be immigration relief available to you, as well as to some of your family members.
The Violence Against Women Act (“VAWA”) is a law that provides help to survivors of battery and/or extreme cruelty. Despite the name of the law, it provides benefits to both male and female victims. The abuse does not need to be reported to law enforcement. If your VAWA petition is approved, you may be eligible for a green card.
