How We
Can Help

The immigration process can be a long experience where the immigrant is depending on their U.S. citizen or Lawful Permanent Resident spouse, who is the petitioner and sponsor, in order to complete the process. Sadly, many immigrants suffer abuse and mistreatment from their spouses and feel that they have no choice but to endure it because of their lack of immigration status and their fear of being reported to immigration.

Many of these sponsoring spouses might threaten to drop any sponsorship the second they don’t get their way. In this way, they intimidate and control their immigrant spouse and make them stay in a situation where they feel hopeless and afraid.  The fantastic news is that there’s a way out of this nightmarish situation. 

With the help of a VAWA immigration attorney (like the kind found at Abogada Ashley Immigration, Inc), you can get a green card without informing your abuser. Read this page to find out how the VAWA law can help you.

How the VAWA Law Assists Abused Immigrants

Two women talking about bona fide determination

The Violence Against Women Act is a piece of federal legislation that allows the government to be better equipped when it comes to responding to abuse in the immigration community. 

A VAWA application is a way to give abused spouses, parents and children a way to get permanent residence (a green card) through a self-petition. This means you, the immigrant victim, file your own case without having to rely on your abusive U.S. citizen or LPR spouse, parent or adult U.S. citizen child.  You do this independently from your abuser without informing them at all during the process. There are also laws in place that prevent immigration from contacting your abuser or relying on information they might provide to try and hurt your case.

Do You Need an Immigration Attorney to File a VAWA Application?

Officially, you don’t need an immigration attorney to file your VAWA application. However, there are many reasons why you should consider hiring one. 

For starters, you need to provide a lot of information and evidence in your application that these professionals can help you gather. You also need to write a very compelling personal statement covering different requirements. An experienced VAWA attorney can make sure your statement is strong enough to meet the legal requirements and shows immigration that your case deserves to be approved.

On top of that, it’s important to remember that the government’s interpretation of this law is constantly shifting. As such, an experienced attorney knows the necessary strategies that can help you get a green card through VAWA.
