  2. Hello Can a non us citizen spouse with a B2 tourist visa petition for a green card under the VAWA violence against woman act if the us citizen spouse who resides outside the USA refuses to sponsor the non us citizen spouse for a green card? thanks.
  3. Hi there, I havent been on for a while but an issue came up with a friend of the family. My wife's friend that she met in an advanced English class this year found out this ongoing information and we are trying to help of possible. This site is tremendously helpful so any information is appreciated. OK here it goes.. They were married in Colombia legally in the beginning of 2017. The man is a Colombian who is/has already been a US Citizen an living in the USA, actually in Pa. The woman is a Colombian citizen who has previously and currently holds a tourist visa. In Colombia she was a licensed dentist fyi. After they were married, he visited several times over the year while they were married. In September of this year, she traveled to the US and of course moved in with her husband. They filed an i485 under the classification of 201B INA Spouse of USC and a Work permit in September of this year. She had her fingerprints already. Now the bad stuff kicks in. Evidently he doesnt like being married to her for some reason and started verbally abusing her. Then he decided to only give her 18 dollars a week (dont know the rason of the odd amount) while she is attending school which requires bus rides to and from, lunch, incidentals etc. He doesn't take her shopping for cold weather clothes, he does bring food home. Now he said a couple of weeks ago he is bored and told her she has to leave the house. He won't respond to any questions she presents him. Now a few days ago he wants her out because he cant afford the rent. (He is a licensed employed engineer)Took her phone away. He says he wont give $$ to allow her to fly back Colombia. He is getting more aggressive. She stays in her bedroom alone. The spouse did find out from his mother that he is bipolar and refuses to take prescribed meds. These are pretty much the broad strokes so I have a bunch of questions obviously that are from me and from her as well. Honestly I never met the man but I know the woman. She still tries to care for him, cooking, cleaning, etc. I know she hopes he will change but I'm pretty sure that isn't going to happen. Her tourist stay has now expired a few days ago but the application is in in far advance of the expiration date Is she protected any way as a spouse to get kicked out of the married home with the recent situation, she cant work yet, has no family or close family here? Is her legally bound to support her? If she can go back to Colombia on her own, evidently the Green Card application goes away but will she automatically loose the tourist visa? Did even coming here on a tourist visa screw this whole thing up? Can the husband cancel the application if she doesnt agree? If he can, can she apply on her own due to circumstances? (Form i360?) Will pursuing VAWA help her in any way. Solutions, ideas, real advice is appreciated.
  4. -Filed i-360 in December 2014. Petition is marriage based -Received an RFE in June 2015 which i Responded to . -I checked the website they stated that they received my documents and will be processed soon. -It is now 2017, and i haven't received any decision from them. THINGS TO NOTE: -i am using an attorney -We only filed the i-360 petition nothing else. The reasoning behind was that once we get a decision on the i-360 we can proceed to file everything else like the 1-485 and i-130 - I haven't worked in those 2 years since i don't have a work permit and my drivers' licence has long expired. I just wanted to know if this is normal or if someone has experienced such a lengthy wait time?
  5. Hi everyone. I am 22 years old. I came to the US on Nov 14 2015. So here is the case My mom is a K1. She has me and my brother K2. My bd is Sept 13,95 and my Bro is way under 21 so I won’t mention ab him. The thing is my mom and my stepfather got married within 30 days of the married license. I don’t remember if it was within 30 or 60 but everything was done. My family have everything ready and we had letter to uscis for interview. However my mom was mentally abused by her husband. She didn’t know that those things her husband said was mentally abusing her. She couldn’t take it anymore because he kept threatening us he will file divorce and make them deport us. We were so scared although we didn’t do anything’s wrong to him. So anyway that day we was having an interview at uscis. He said with the officer he doesn’t want to petition us anymore and he will get divorce blah blah. The officer said the green cards for my family were approved and wonder if he still wants to petition us but he said he would want it canceled 😢. My mom talked to the officer alone and tell him how she was treated and how he talked ab her make her feel stupid. (Of course at that time she had her evidence on her viber but now she lost it because viber keeps updating and erases the old messages) so she lived in confidental house. Has someone help her with our case which is VAWA. The person from the shelter helps us send the new files now to uscis before i turn 21. But then uscis return our files and said we need to sign again. Then we signed again and submitted it after i turn 21. This week they receive mails from uscis saying that they need more evidence ab the abusing, ab the marriage was the a fraud and something else. Although she lost her messages as evidence, we have people who can prove that hers was a good faith marriage. Ok now is my part I m dating and living with my current boyfriend who is a usc. We have been living with each other for more than 1 y and a haft. We want to get married but put me in the situation above with my case status. I don’t know if I get married I can adjust the status or not. Can you help me it s urgent. My employment card expires March 2018 so please please help me with my super complicated case?
  6. Hello everyone. With a heavy heart, I appeal to you for any help I can get right now. Since my previous post on here, so much has happened. The long and short of it is, I, against my better judgement moved back in with my husband. Amongst other things, I wanted to know that I've given the marriage my best shot. He was the man of my dreams and I wanted to leave no stone unturned. we had been in contact the entire 2 weeks I was gone but he didn't know where I was staying. I felt somewhat safe to be around him again. We went out to eat a couple of times and Hung out at the house before I officially moved back in. The yelling and the screaming started right back 2days after my return. I won't dwell on that for now but as of recently, there has been so much peace in the home! I felt like I have my husband back. He had made me sign divorce papers when he was angry and forced me to sign them asap. Which I ended up doing because I wanted peace. He says he never submitted the papers. That doesn't mean he hasn't. Lately, we have been getting along. I even let my guard down. This morning, I received a notice from usps about mail on the way. Some of it was from uscis. I tell you, I was crying on my way to work with excitement that I was finally going to receive my green card and would be able to visit my family back home after all these years. I came home to find the mail and it's a DENIAL! Apparently my husband had sent a letter withdrawing the i864 or financial support commitment he made when we filed. I am devastated. I didn't see this coming! He and I talk all the time. He never mentioned this to me. According to the denial letter, attached to this post, I have to leave the country asap and my work permit has been revoked. Sad thing is, I was working on getting my ead renewed because the green card had taken so long to be approved. Throughout the marriage, I have considered VAWA, the ladies from domestic hotline suggested it. I Didn't pursue the idea because, how do you prove emotional and verbal abuse? I've been in the US for more than 4 years. First year was B2 visa. I was out of status when I met my husband. I would like to stay in the country legally. What steps, if any, could I take to pursue that route? I have very limited funds and don't have thousands for legal fees. Is there anything I can do on my own to fix the situation? Husband apologizes for taking this drastic step and tells me he would reverse it if he could. He is willing to pay a lawyer for us to file aos all over again. (Just because he says all this, doesn't mean he means it) Please guys, can you help me. I appreciate all of you for taking the time to read and offer any help. TLDR: US citizen husband revoked i864/ financial support document, which caused my i485, AOS application to be denied. Please advise on how to move forward. Thanks Thanks again everyone
  7.

  8. Hi, My husband applied for me and I got my working and traveling permit but before the first interview I started my divorce because I got tired about his threatening related to my immigration process. I couldn't resist his physical and emotional abuse anymore. I know I should have waited after my first interview but I feel very relieved he doesn't have any power on me now. I went to the interview alone and I told the officer everything I have been through. He even tried to kill my dog. It was a nightmare. Now Im sorprised because they sent me a letter asking me for my divorce decree when I was expecting a denial. Does anyone knows what it means? On the other hand, I'm preparing my case to apply for VAWA without a Lawyer. I have my medical evaluation that was submitted with my previous petition. Should I submit another? I have a copy but I understand that must be the original in an sealed envelope. I was 7 months ago, it's still valid I guess.
  9. Vawa Aprovals August 2016???

    anyone approved from august 20016??im still waiting going on 1 year now??????
  10. Good day to everybody! Thank you so much for taking some time to read this post and help me out. I will appreciate it so much. I will make a good contextualization, so you may understand better I am in a crazy situation and I would like to ask for advise. On December 2015 I traveled to United States with a K1 Visa. I got married with my fiancé one day after my 90 day period be done, however, 15 days later I came back to my country. The reason why I decided to come back to my country was not good at all. When I was in the United States I was victim of many kind of abuse that I even do not want to remember: emotional abuse (my fiancé called me names all the time, sometimes was 'playing' like he would punch me, I had to write down what I was doing each hour and I could not move out of the house because people could 'kidnap me'); financial abuse (I did not have money and he did not provide an allowance to me); sexual abuse (I even could not do control birth and as result of that I got pregnant). I could not communicate with people: I had an old phone that barely worked to chat with my family, I did not want to tell them what was going on to do not make them feel bad, anyways they could not do nothing for me. My fiancé removed the land line and set passwords in all his devices with the objective of not allowing me make use of them. For me was forbidden talking to people outside, because if I do was because I was thinking on being unfaithful. My fiancé used to humiliate me buying me a ticket to come back to my country. He did it several times. But one day I could take that ticket. My fiancé left me in the house alone, he did not know that in secret I was going to a Christian Church, the Pastor of that Church helped me out to get in the airport. I escaped to my home. Once in home, I discovered I was pregnant, it was so devastating to me. I talked to my fiancé again, I was needing his economical support since I was alone, with no job and really sick. He took it as an opportunity to keep his emotional abuse. Even he visited me and pushed me against a wall, he knew I was pregnant back then. I started to fell in depression and because that I lost the baby. However, I was not feeling good at all, my spirit was broken and I stayed some time with my 'husband' in long distance relationship. He wanted to control me in the distance, and he set on my phone applications to control what I was having in there, also an application to see in real time what I was doing, was pretending to install cameras in my house to see what I was doing, and of course, closed my social accounts and took the passwords of each account I had. I got tired of it how was logic, and decide to break up with him and move on with my life. However here is my big issue, ¿how to divorce him? He is pretty much making fun of me because he says I do not have a Visa to come in to United States and I do not have money neither, which is true. But I want to get divorce, and I will for the right reasons: he was giving me a cruel treatment. I documented some of this mistreatment when I was on United States. However my fiancé deleted all of them when he catch it. I have documented some of the stuff he said to me when I get back... I have a very long list of conversations, videos and voice recordings to support what I say -I did not record him, the program he installed to spy on me did it, I only discovered it-. I want to divorce him for his mistreatment for one single reason: if his first wife would talk to me about this, I never would have fell on this scam. Obviously I would not had to live all what I did and dealing with the loss of my baby. I do not want any other women experience all the soul pain I felt. I do not want to be coward anymore, I was enough already by putting up in silence with his mistreatment and acting like losing my baby did not break my heart. Please guys, if any of you has a good recommendation of what I should do and which are my chances to be successful with this, I will listen with the mind open. I am not looking for Visa benefits -I do not want to ever go back to States, at least t has to be to a court- or money arrangements neither, I just want justice, I want people recognize that I never have been crazy, that I had reasons to leave and stay away from the 'gentleman' that people from outside see on my 'husband'. My punctual questions are, can I request divorce for cruel treatment even if I only can prove the mistreatment when I arrived back to my country? And second, how could I initiate the process when I am overseas with no permission to come in to United States and no idea about how to get a lawyer that does not charge so much? By the way, the mistreatment started once I arrived to United States and continued after getting back. Thank you so much for Reading. I will appreciate your help.

  14. Hey guys, is anyone aware of the excuses that can be used to file for VAWA? I friend of my friend was married for a guy, USC, for over a year, then in the middle of the marriage he started cheating on her and abusing her, then she told him that she is leaving, he filed for a divorce and then a few months later he died, crashed on purpose. She has been really bad lately but my friend is trying to help her apply for VAWA, is there a way to get a 2 year rule excused?
  15. I have question for you guys. I'm filing for vawa petition and I was wondering, what happens to the abuser after filing for the petition? Does it affect their record like background check or smiliar? Thank you!
  16. Hello all, I am a I 751 abuse waiver applicant. Can I apply for victim compensation? I was diagnosed by PTSD and need to go through therapy sessions. I do not have insurance as my spouse canceled it. So, my therapist suggested me to apply for Victim compensation program. My question is can I eligible to apply for that? Taking help from Government will be a remark for my immigration file? Will that be a reason to deny my PR application? Please help, if anyone have any idea about this. Thanks
  17. Can a spouse of a TPS holder apply for VAWA? Also if she can can she still do it if they are divorced but the harassment and abuse continue after divorce? Thanks
  18. I have an approved I-360 petition. I'm gathering all the documents to file for my I-485 and I-765. I am a bit confused because on the I-797 Notice of Action it states that I can apply under code c(14) if I got deferred action. The only thing is that I believe I only had 15 months from the date my petition was approved. Or I have the category c(31) as well. Which one would better correspond to my situation and what is the difference between the 2?
  19. Hello everyone, I am not sure if its the right forum to post. Long story short. I came to houston with a K1 visa last year in November. I got married to my fiancee and we submitted all the paperwork for my EAD and GC. When i finally got here i realized that my fiancee was a different person he started abusing me, he would humiliate me every day and even beat me up. He blocked all the phones so that my other couldn't call me from my country. Finally one day i called the police i got a report and they took him to jail for 2 days, his brother took me to the homeless shelter and left me there for 2 days or more. After that they allowed me to gen back in the house but the abuse continued. Then he started cheating on me which i found out a month later when started taking care of the bills and his credit cards cause he went to jail because of a third DWI which is his second felony. Even from jail he was still controlling me, calling every single day and anytime even during work. I finally left the house cause i did not deserve to pay for all the debt that he left wich was 8000 just for credit cards plus his truck and cellphone. The people from the shelter told me to apply for vawa with any of the free legal assistance places to get my GC on my own Because for sure his family is doing everything to process or divorce. Would i still be eligible for VAWA ? I would love to get more information on this. any experiences from anybody would be helpful please. Currently i have my EAD and the the I 485 is still pending but since were not together is the best idea to apply for VAWA?
  20. Hello i just filed a vawa (i360) through my attorney. I would like to know what my chances are of having it approved. I included evidence of the abuse that dates back to 2006 when i was pregnant with our first child and he hit me for the first time aggravated battery on a pregnant woman is the charge on the police report. they wanted to put him in prison and at the time i refused to testify.Sometimes looking back i hate myself because he should have been convicted and because i was weak i never wanted to testify against him hence why so many police reports but no convicted. i was so terrified on so many levels. i stayed with this man for ten years and endured this abuse. Had two children who endured the abuse right by my side. We have multiple police reports, hospital reports, photos of my injuries. I am very scared that even with all my evidence i will be denied because I've been reading many stories of ppl online who ended up being denied and t hey don't have any idea why. please help i keep wondering if there was any different type of evidence me and my attorney might have missed but we included everything as far as the abuse is concerned. there were multiple stances of physical abuse he even was arrested for domestic violence in one occasion he abused me on so many levels. he also forced me to work as an exotic dancer to support his drug habit. i included that in my testimony along with affidavits from friends and family. even his own grandma wrote a statement in my behalf. But I've read on here affidavits from family members don't weight that much. please someone hep me.
  21. Hi everyone, I filed i360 and submitted it on March 31 2017 through a charity lawyer. I haven't heard from her since then, still waiting for news on my receipt number. Anyone else going through anxiety of waiting?
  22. Hello all, I am at the lowest point of my life. Last week, my wife/her parents kicked me out. In the past there are 4 to 5 instances of her abusing me. I have taken photos of my injuries as well. My conditional green card expires Dec 2017. Ours is a real marriage, I have many documents like leases, deed, Health/auto/home insurances, photos, air tickets, etc. She applied for divorce this week. It takes 6 months to get divorce finalized in my state. It will extend longer for sure, as she will argue on everything. I met with an Immigration attorney, he is suggesting to apply I-751 in extreme cruelty waiver category. He do not want me to check 'Divorce' category. My question is, can I check both the boxes even divorce is not final yet? 1) Extreme cruelty and Divorce 2) If I check both the boxes, do I need to prove both? 3) If I check only cruelty now, can I update my application to divorce also, once divorce is finalized? 4) I read somewhere that, once I-751 deadline is crossed (Conditional LPR expiration date), I cannot re apply for a new i 751 application or update my existing application with 'Divorce' category. I want to check both the boxes. In case my proof's are not enough for extreme cruelty, my application can also be considered in 'Divorce' But my attorney says, as I will not have divorce decree until next 6 to 12 months, I might get RFE and may be rejected. Please confirm.
  23. Before I upset anyone who actually claims VAWA isnt a scam and they used it for real reasons (not reasons they instigated by being complete jerks), I would like to say that this is the only reason I have not yet divorced my fake wife of only 5 months. She has not yet received her green card or anything yet and the i485 is still pending. So basically, I married her and have evidence that she only came to the US to get legalization as she clearly texted me this and there is so much evidence for this. Furthermore, I was pressured to marry because of abortion and because they harrased me including her crazy Ukrainian divorced best friend that she lives with and they didn't even let me confer with my parents or talk about marriage and didn't allow any family members or friends of mine to attend the wedding. We have nothing together, no banks or joint accounts or anything, and dont even live together. Furthermore, I never assault her, nor am I rude to her and I don't mistreat her. I do argue with her sometime because I want her to be normal and not annoy me and drill me everyday on how I should live, behave, or call me names or insult me or my mom. She made it clear right after marriage she dont love me and wants me for papers only. She once told me if I divorced her (and she said it in a joking yet evil way) that she'd claim I "abused" her if I did divorce. This really threw red flags and I also realized she wants to control me and ensure I dont divorce her. I am now considering annulment but some part of me just wants to find a common ground and get a divorce so she doesnt waste my time and piss me off and falsely claim a VAWA case. I know some of you here are very familiar with it and I don't want to deal with that. I need help on exiting this bullcrap "marriage" without her claiming VAWA. She doesn't have approved i485 yet, and we have nothing together, never even lived together for 5 months as she lives with her roommate a few blocks down, and I also am not abusive and as a matter of fact provide everything for her, take her on vacations, etc.... Furthermore she is 29 and I'm 23. And because of her I have started and even during the marriage, was on a crazy opiate/painkiller + cocaine binge just to avoid the ridiculous nonsense of her emotional insanity about the whole "abortion" story and her annoying roommate all drilling me to marry and not letting me confer with my family. In essence they pressured me, forced me, and brainwashed me to marry then flipped the script and instead of being like a flower, and appreciating all what I did, she (the wife) demands more and lives life as if I owe her everything and as if she is the one taking care of me or married me. I'm sick of this and sick of this VAWA which is clearly a scam 99% of the time not just by women but also by men. Should I get out of this with annulment or can I do a simple divorce where she agrees to divorce and also states that there was no fault, no abuse, except just that we do not belong together. And can she claim VAWA after it and get approved, or is it at least difficult enough to get approved especially if she completely agrees with divorce and especially that I have never even laid a hand on her, lived with her, abused her, or hit her in any way except that I tell her time to time I want to divorce because Im young and just want to be free again and cant deal with the emotional stress of marriage (which is not even close to abuse). Can someone please help and explain if its best to compromise together with a proper divorce where she doesnt try to f*k me and backstab me with VAWA or should I just completely get rid of her with an annulment and feel myself blessed and completely freed and rid of this annoying woman.
  24. Hi, I would really appreciate your time and help regarding my case and bless you for helping me out in such a terrible situation I am stuck into. I came to the United States in 2015 on a K-1 fiancé visa and got married to my husband on December 12 2015. Soon after a few months I have been issued a conditional greencard that expires next year (April 8th 2018). It took me a long while to recognize that he has been emotionally and physically abusing me. He constantly made comments on getting me deported. I have had no access to any of his finances. In the beginning of our marriage he gave me an authorized credit card to do groceries but I have no accounts, bills or receipts in my direct name though he has added me on his joint insurance. After er a few months of our marriage he started accusing me that I married him to get citizenship. When he stopped with that he started physically hurting me by pushing, biting, slapping and pulling my hair. His emotional abuse started way before but I failed to recognize. He would constantly swear at me, lock himself in a room, won't sleep in the same room with me, eat with me and things like that. I let go of all those. It got worse and when I couldn't take his beating I pushed him only (he is a giant guy) he called the cops saying that I'm abusing him and his life is in danger. When the cops came and saw my marks and all the situation they arrested him and filed second degree assault charges on him along with a protective order for three months. I moved to his his mothers house during that time and I was scared that he will leave me and I've no family of my own here in Maryland and so I am solely dependent on him. To remove the charges the state filed, I wrote a written statement saying that I don't believe he is an abusive person and all that. When we we got back together, things have been worse than I would have really imagined. He doesn't communicate or come near me at all. He has cameras and recorders all over the house and I am under constant surveillance. He tells me everyday to go to the lawyer with him and file for a no fault divorce and go back to my country. Now, since I am on conditional green card I desperately need to know if someone has been in the similar situation how did they handle their legal status or what am I supposed to do? Divorce is a big taboo in my country and me being so young, even the thought of going back and facing the society gives me absolute fear and anxiety. 1.How can I protect my legal status in the United States lawfully and under what brackets? 2.When can I apply for to remove the conditions from my greencard on my own? 3. How long does it take and honestly what are the chances I can get it? 4. Do I need to be divorced before I apply for the waiver, during or after? Any other advice, suggestions or guidance would really help me. I am new in the United States and I've been here a fullbright scholar here before I got married. I've always maintained a healthy record of my character and I don't want it to get ruined because of somebody else. Many regards & thankyou.
