VAWA Law (Violence Against Women Act)

VAWAVAWA is a law that was passed in 2000; VAWA stands for the “Violence Against Women Act.”  To qualify for immigration VAWA benefits, we must show that the immigrant could have benefitted from a family-based immigrant petition filed by a United States Citizen or Lawful Permanent Resident spouse, parent or child, and that the immigrant suffered extremely cruel treatment from that relative during the course of their relationship.  VAWA applicants are eligible to apply for their own immigrant visa petitions via Form I-360.  Evidence of the abusive relationship is foremost in VAWA cases.  We can help you prepare the strongest case possible so that you can acquire legal immigration status in the United States and so that you can claim your right to live free of the abuse your relative has inflicted upon you.
