Dallas VAWA Lawyer

Helping VAWA Victims Obtain Legal Immigration Status 

The Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) offers protection to spouses, children, and parents of U.S. citizens; and spouses of children of lawful permanent residents who have experienced domestic abuse.  A VAWA applicant may apply for work authorization, a green card, and other public benefits. VAWA applicants may be eligible to receive deferred action while U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) makes a decision on the case. Deferred action is a discretionary benefit that authorizes individuals to remain in the United States for the duration of the deferred action period.   

If an individual qualifies to apply for VAWA immigration benefits, he or she may do so without the abusive relative’s involvement. Importantly, USCIS does not notify the abusive relative that the VAWA applicant is seeking immigration benefits.  

Requirements for VAWA Immigration Benefits 

In general, an applicant must show the existence of a qualifying relationship, evidence of having suffered battery or extreme cruelty, proof that they lived with the abusive relative, and evidence of good moral character. Additionally, an applicant who was married to his or her abuser must demonstrate that the applicant entered the marriage in good faith.   

If you or your family member have suffered domestic abuse from a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident, contact our office to determine if you qualify for VAWA immigration benefits. 

Please contact us at (844) 299-5003 or send us a message to learn how to protect yourself as an immigrant who has been a victim of a crime.

A Reputation of Excellence Our Success

    "...Highly recommended and great law firm."
    I just want to take a moment and personally thanks Kavitha & Akula Law Firm for helping me out and getting through my complicated I140 case. It was a impossible case which Kavitha made it possible. As usual Kavitha's expertise has been phenomenal. I am very grateful to her. Because of her experience and professionalism in filing the I-485 it didn't even trigger an RFE or an interview request, it was a direct approval. And having Ambreen and other expert counsel members are really great to work with. They are prompt and very helpful. Ambreen, is so wonderful and have dealt so patiently and promptly with me during my I485 and the efforts she have put towards my application was at par. I was fortunate to work with Ambreen during this filing period. Highly recommended and great law firm.
