The Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) offers protection and resources to victims of domestic violence, including immigrants. The VAWA I-360 petition is a crucial provision that allows certain victims of abuse to self-petition for lawful permanent resident status without the assistance of their abusive spouse or family member. Eligible categories include abused spouses, children, and parents. To be eligible, victims must demonstrate that they have suffered from battery or extreme cruelty by the U.S. citizen or LPR spouse, parent, or child. VAWA self-petitions are confidential, and the abuser is not notified. This allows victims to seek protection from abuse and obtain LPR status without the fear of reprisals from their abuser. If you or someone you know is a victim of domestic violence and is also an immigrant, contact an experienced immigration attorney who can guide you through the VAWA self-petition process.

Does the New Rule Shorten Green Card Wait Times for Asylees?
Unlock the Path to an Asylum Green Card with USCIS Updates. Have you been approved for asylum in the US and are now looking to obtain a green card? USCIS has recently released a new rule regarding the physical presence requirement for asylees seeking a green card. The previous rule stated that asylees must have a full year of physical presence in the US when filing for a green card, but the recent update clarifies that the one-year physical presence requirement should mature at the time of the green card’s approval. This change has sparked debate among immigration lawyers, with some interpreting it to mean that asylees no longer have to wait an entire year before filing for adjustment of status to a green card. However, the general consensus is to wait for USCIS to provide further clarification.
