Are You a Victim of Domestic Violence?
Do you want to know how to get PERMANENT RESIDENCY if your spouse abuses you? Does your spouse threaten to beat you or your children, threaten to hurt them or take them away from you? Does your spouse threaten to deport you or turn you in to the INS (Immigration & Naturalization Service)? If your answer is "YES" to any of these questions, you and your children may be able to receive permission to work and live in the United States. Under "VAWA" (Violence Against Women Act), you may be able to obtain these benefits without your spouse's help.
