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.

    "This firm was the ONLY firm that gave me hope"
    I want to thank Akula & Associates for helping me adjust my status. After seeing many law firms in the Dallas area, this firm was the ONLY firm that gave me hope. I was able to adjust my status in record time. I want to especially thank lawyer Kathy Brady for working hard on my case. She was very patient and hard working. She was the only one that gave me hope when many other lawyers didn’t. Thank you again!

    "Highly recommended!"
    We are a small business with 20 employees and reached out to Akula & Associates for immigration help, Kavitha Akula, Toki Olowo and their staff have been extremely helpful. They always give very clear instructions for our cases, and yes, we have multiple cases with them and several of which are approved. The staff is very responsive on either email or over the phone; I am grateful that they are around to provide excellent and professional service. Highly recommended!

    "Timely response, dedication towards the work"

    We are an IT consulting firm. Kavitha helped us to get critical H1 case approvals and saved employees from running out of status which leads them to travel to their home country permanently. Timely response, dedication towards the work, having proper immigration knowledge, solving cases with logical thoughts, and the best team are the positives. Thanks!

    "I truly love their staff!"
    My journey started with Akula & Associates exactly 10 months ago. Came to know about them through a friend, casually called, impressed with their profile and signed up contract for services. Last 10 months we filed several cases and each case they treat like a completely new customer and examine each document thoroughly, advise and make us on top of the things. I truly say sincere THANKS for their great service. I truly love their staff. My paralegal Yezenia is awesome, attorney Toki is wonderful. Yet to work more with GC team, Shirin and Christie, great work experience so far. Last but not least Attorney Kavitha is Great!!! I hope I get the same level of service for me and employees for coming years!!! Good luck to Akula & Associates !!
