VAWA Immigration Petitions For Victims Of Abuse

When an immigrant is in an abusive relationship and the abuser is a U.S. citizens or permanent resident there are laws available to protect these victims.

Abuse victims can make independent petitions for permanent residency via the VAWA (Violence Against Women Act) self-petition process. VAWA immigration petitions are called “self-petitions” because the VAWA applicant is applying independently of the abusive spouse. VAWA immigration petitions are valid for the abused spouse and children.

Abuse victims need to file timely VAWA petitions. Do not file for divorce without consulting first about the immigration consequences. It is also important to consult to determine whether children can be included.
