VAWA Lawyer in Clinton North Carolina

The Violence Against Women Act creates opportunities for immigrants who have been victims of abuse. If accepted as VAWA recipients, individuals will be able to seek permanent status in the country. There are certain requirements individuals must meet. Among the basic requirements for eligibility, a victim must be the spouse or child of an abusive U.S. citizen or permanent resident.

Requirements for Petitioners:

Petitioners have to provide evidence that they have been abused by their U.S. citizen relative.
Spouses need to provide evidence that the abuse started while being married in the United States while the couple was living together.
You might submit an application as a self-petitioner if applicants provide evidence of good moral character.

I-751 Waiver Petitions

There are other types of relief like VAWA that provide a pathway to legal status for abuse victims. For example, there are waivers such as the I-751 waiver petition that give permanent residence to spouses of physically or emotionally abusive partners. After two years of being married to your U.S. citizen spouse, both of you might need to fill out the I-751 petition. We recommend that you contact an experienced immigration lawyer before applying for a waiver, for you will need to provide plenty of evidence along with your petition. A Form I-751 waiver is available for lawful residents who have been battered or abused by their U.S. citizen spouse or parent. If your spouse or parent never petitioned you for a green card but you are still with your abusive spouse, you may not file Form I-751.

Difference between VAWA and I-751 Waiver Petitions

A Form I-751 waiver is available for lawful residents who have been battered or abused by their U.S. citizen spouse or parent. If your spouse or parent never petitioned you for a green card but you are still with your abusive spouse, you may not file Form I-751. However, this is not the case if you petition under VAWA. The Violence Against Women Act permits victims of domestic violence, as well as their children to self-petition for a green card by filing Form I-360. If you are a permanent resident with an abusive spouse or parent contact us at our office in Clinton North Carolina 910-379-4688.
