VAWA Self-Petition Victory for Male Survivor of Domestic Violence

Posted by MICHAEL W. LIN | Aug 19, 2022 | 0 Comments

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.
