The Violence Against Women Act, also known as VAWA, provides many protections for immigrant women and men. The Violence Against Women Act allows victims of domestic violence, child abuse and even elder abuse who are not citizens of the United States to ‘self-petition’ for lawful permanent residence without the cooperation of the abuser.

Deportation Proceedings (1)

An immigrant may be eligible to become a lawful permanent resident if you are the victim of battery or extreme cruelty committed by:

  • A U.S. citizen spouse or former spouse;
  • A U.S. citizen parent;
  • A U.S. citizen son or daughter;
  • A lawful permanent resident (“LPR”) spouse or former spouse; or
  • An LPR parent.

If you have not yet filed a self-petition but think you are eligible, Quintero Fortich Legal can help. We understand your situation and how traumatic it has been. At our firm, we want to make sure you are safe and out of fear that your immigration status would be in jeopardy. There are several requirements to be eligible for a VAWA application and our attorneys are here to help you navigate those. Please call us for your initial consultation.
