Newburgh Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) Lawyer
Anyone experiencing domestic violence should seek help immediately. For someone who is not from the United States, it is even more critical to document the abuse through a police report and obtain legal representation by a knowledgeable immigration lawyer. I am attorney Osa Igunbor, and I help victims of abuse in get the protection they need to feel safe and the green cards they need to stay in the U.S. following a domestic violence incident.
The Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) provides a path to lawful permanent residency for women and men who have been victims of domestic abuse. Often, these cases involve a foreign person coming to the U.S. to marry. However, as time goes on, the spouse becomes violent and abusive, and the foreign individual needs help.
Contact my law firm to learn more about how I can assist you in obtaining a legal residency rough the Violence Against Women Act. It is important to have evidence of the abuse in order to successfully file an application. With proper documentation such as police reports of domestic abuse, the process will be significantly expedited. Depending on the evidence available, it could take as little as a few months for the VAWA application to be approved, or as long as two years if little evidence is available.
