Get Help if You’re an Immigrant Facing Domestic Abuse
Learn More About the Options That Are Available
There are a couple of tools that can help victims of domestic abuse in relation to immigration:
- Violence Against Women Act (VAWA): This act states that, should a non-resident have a spouse that is a) a citizen or legal resident of the United States, and b) is being abused by said spouse, they may fight to obtain residency without involving their partner.
- U Nonimmigrant Status (U Visa): This type of visa is available for individuals who came to the United States and were abused in any way. Essentially, it can grant potential immigrants relief and protect them from being deported.
- Removal of Conditions: Generally, if your spouse sponsored you for conditional residence, you would need their help to remain in the United States after the two-year period is over. However, if your spouse is abusive, then a family immigration lawyer can help get these conditions removed.
