An abused spouse retained Herman Legal Group’s experienced immigration lawyers in Cleveland 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.
The challenge lies in evidence gathering which often does not rely on legal expertise. Our attorneys are dedicated to help clients make the most persuasive arguments, based on the strength of evidence you provided. Therefore, please do not hesitate to contact us should you find yourself or others you know in need of relief from the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA).
We helped our client prove that she met all criteria set by Violence Against Women Act by showing that:
- She was the victim of abuse by her U.S. citizen husband.
- She married the alleged abuser in good faith.
- She was a person of good moral character.
Two months after her I-360 immigrant petition was approved, her I-485 application for permanent resident status was granted.
