We are proud to announce the successful green card application of a male survivor of domestic violence through VAWA Self Petition. The Violence Against Women Act (a.k.a. VAWA) allows for survivors of domestic abuse perpetrated by their U.S. Citizen or Lawful Permanent Resident spouse to self-petition for a green card. This important legislation provides protection and security to survivors who otherwise would be eligible for lawful permanent residency, but for the abuse inflicted by their spouses. By doing so, VAWA recognizes the fact that a survivor’s lack of immigration status is often used by perpetrators as a further tool of abuse to exert power and control and to keep the victim in the relationship.
