An Abused Spouse Granted Green Card

An Abused Spouse Granted Green Card

Venezuela


 

Client: abused spouse from Venezuela

Location: Cleveland, Ohio

Case Type: I-485 APPLICATITON TO REGISTER PERMANENT RESIDENT OR ADJUST STATUS (BASED ON SPECIAL CATEGORY)


Background: An abused spouse retained us to secure her immigration status while her short lived marriage was falling apart. We received two requests for evidence because our client’s marriage was recent.

Date of Application: April 10, 2013

Date of I-360 Approval: July 23, 2014

Date of I-485 Approval: August 29, 2014


WE HELPED OUR CLIENT prove that she met all criteria set by Violence Against Women Act by showing that—

  1. She married the alleged abuser in good faith, and
  2. She is a person of good, moral character.

CHALLENGES: Many abused spouses don’t know that they have the right to apply green card when they are abused by an American citizen or permanent resident. They can file the I-360 application by themselves after the abusing accidents. There are some other requirements to be met and it is better to retain a reliable lawyer to take care of the process as the abused spouse is always in the weak status to deal with the whole process. Lawyers can also better protect the legal rights of the aggrieved spouse.


TWO MONTHS AFTER HER I-360 IMMIGRANT PETITION WAS APPROVED, her permanent resident status was granted.
