What is VAWA?
The cases of abused spouses are very common today in the US. Most of them are frightened to report against the violence they face by their spouse or family members or child. If the abused person is a non-citizen of the US, in that case, they are even more frightened. For the non-citizen US victims, it might happen that they get deported if they report against the violence on them to the police or the authorities. It was finally enacted by Congress, an act for the abused spouse and children. It came to be known as the Violence Against Women Act or VAWA which allows self-petition by the victim. It also allows lawful residency of the victim in the US. The VAWA act allows the immigrants to report or file against the abusers for their benefits. The victims can file with full confidentiality and they do not need any kind of assistance from the abuser for their petition. Abuse not only means physical, but it can also be financial and emotional. In case you are feeling unsafe, it is best to leave your home or place of residence and apply for VAWA self-petition.
