Violence Against Women Act

There are provisions to allow immigrant victims of domestic violence, physical and/or  psychological to obtain immigration relief independent of their abusive spouse or parent through a process called “self-petitioning.” Those who are married to a U.S. citizen are treated to a speedier process than those who married a green card holder. But both get protection from deportation and can remain while their case is pending and when successful obtain green cards.

The applicant must be of good moral character and must provide significant evidence of the abuse by police  and incident reports, eyewitness statements, photographs,  and by affidavits.

Even men who are the immigrants can apply for a green card under this category if they are victims of the same time of abuse by their U.S. citizen wives or permanent resident wives.
