Special Visas for Victims of Crime and Women Who Qualify Under the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA)

The United States Congress has passed special immigration laws making it possible for women or men to qualify to remain legally in the United States if she or he can prove to be a victim of spousal abuse or a criminal act. The Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) is an important way for women or men to escape domestic violence, whether living here in the United States illegally or living abroad seeking legal residency status in America. Under certain circumstances, men may also qualify if they can prove they have suffered abuse at the hands of their spouse. The qualification criteria are complicated and strictly monitored. Our attorneys will answer your questions and give you an honest evaluation of whether you qualify for legal status under VAWA regulations.
