Violence Against Women Act (VAWA)

VAWA is a law passed in 1994 to protect victims of domestic and sexual abuse. Among other important things, VAWA offers abuse victims a path toward permanent residency (green card) independent from their abuser. You may qualify for permanent residency under VAWA if you are the victim of abuse perpetrated by a US citizen spouse or ex; US citizen parent; US citizen son or daughter; permanent resident spouse or ex; permanent resident parent.
