VAWA involve children

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello, everybody. I'm new to this site and I have a few questions. I was married to a USC and was living 2 together prior to the marriage. Also have a child who was born with birth defect which made her permanently disable. When I arrived to United States with the child due to emergency medical care was needed ( I was on B 2 visa) , problems start pilling up. First off, he got to meet my family here who he thinks has money. So He threathened me to borrow a substantial amount of money for his business. He said if I don't do it, he will send me back to my home country and take my child away. So I did talk to my family for the money but was borrowed under his name with his own signature. And he threatened to kill me if I don't do what he told me to do. This is a very small portion of the abused. So one day I called up relative here in US to come and get me out of my ex husband's house. I had to sneak out through the back while he had a meeting with his client and with the child on my arms. Long story short, My Immigration Attorney advised me to filed for VAWA ( the child is already a USC, got her citizen ship through embassy out side US) . I submitted a restraining order, marriage certificate stated that we were living together 2 years prior to marriage which I was only 17 at the time, stated that I was 7 months pregnant at the time of marriage. Also, a doctor statement of the child ongoing medical needs here in the US. My letter of what's story was, a letter of the relative who come and help get out of that house. Birth Certificate. Copy of Visa and passport. Statement from police station for my back ground check ( my background check come out clean) .

Questions: My current status online is initial review, how long to I expect to wait before decision time?

Do I have enough paper work?

Thank you for everybody who answer to my questions

Do you have a ny police reports of the abuse, or doctor's notes of signs of physical abuse? That is the best evidence
