VAWA: Hope for domestic abuse victims

Many immigrant victims of domestic abuse were trapped in dangerous situations because they feared deportation if they left their abuser. They were often dependent on their abuser for their immigration status, making it difficult to escape the abuse and seek safety❌.

The Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) is a law that provides victims of domestic abuse who are immigrants a chance to break free from their abuser and build a new life for themselves and their families. It empowers them to seek safety and justice without fear of being deported✊.

To be eligible for VAWA self-petition, you must be:

⚖️An immigrant who has been abused by a U.S. citizen or Permanent Resident spouse, parent, or child

⚖️The victim of battery or extreme cruelty

⚖️Able to provide evidence of the abuse
