U Visas And The Violence Against Women Act

The original 1994 version of the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) has been expanded through its re-passage in 2013. The new version of the law includes federal protections for gay, lesbian and transgender individuals and Native Americans as well as for immigrants. Among other provisions, the VAWA allows immigrant women and men to continue to pursue green cards after being physically abused by American spouses who brought them to this country. Attorneys at Moreno, LLP Attorneys at Law have helped dozens of clients take advantage of protections and opportunities that the VAWA provides.

U Visas And VAWA Protections

In addition to protecting immigrants who have experienced domestic violence, the VAWA also makes it possible for victims of other types of crimes to obtain U visas. Crimes that may enable U visa eligibility include felonies and other violent crimes. Our attorneys have helped many clients convince USCIS officials of the violent nature of crimes committed against them by U.S. citizens and obtain U visas. Our lawyers can discuss the unique circumstances of your VAWA-related case and explore your options for achieving the most favorable resolution with the help of our immigration lawyers.

It is possible that you may qualify for protection under the VAWA as a victim of domestic violence and also qualify for a U visa. Knowing which option is right for your situation requires experienced evaluation. Our office can assist with determining and demonstrating eligibility for either option.
