I-360

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I have a situation and i am wondering if anyone can help with advice or suggestions. I married my wife, a naturalized citizen but after many months of domestic violence on her part, we are now separated. i have initaited divorce proceedings against her. Before the separation, we had a big arguement, during which she struck me with a wooden object which caused me to bleed. I called the police and took some pictures of the injury. It was a couple of days before our first interview. in retaliation, she withdrew her petition a day before the interview with a stipulation that she would reconsider if i was willing to "behave". INS has sent me a notification withdrawing my authorization to work and i have been placed on removal proceedings. I have secured the services of a lawyer and a court date has been set for june 12 2006. I will appreciate advice or suggestion from anyone who has been through a similar situation or who knows anything that can bolster my case. thank you.

Hi

I want to tell you that I am so sorry for what happened. I hope you're ok now, I really do. I lived the same situation when I was in the States 2 years ago (on my husbands side), I had pics taken too but the army wanted to give me the GC (using the I360 form) but I refused it and went back to Italy. All I know is that you can still apply for the Gc and fill out the form I360 even if you're divorced. I don't exactly know all the rules, but I think you need to apply as soon as you receive the notice of removal, otherwise you'll lose everything. Go to the web site www.uscis.gov and click on the right sied of the page "getting green cards" and you'll find a list of different categories. Your case is calle Violence against women act VAWA they also explain that even an abused man can apply for the waiver.

Good luck :thumbs:

Do you mean it was a couple of days before your AOS interview? Your profile still says that you're a K1, I'm assuming K1 adjusting...

If you married in good faith and with the situation you find yourself in, I would think you should be eligible to adjust under the VAWA. Although it's the "Violence Against Women Act", spouses of either gender can use it.

As far as the removal proceedings, I don't know. You require legal assistance if you wish to remain in the US, and I am glad you have secured a lawyer.

I'm sorry that this has happened to you, I wish you luck in sorting it out.

Both actions, the violence/emotional abuse and the threat of control over the immigration process constitute abuse. Seek counselling from a local Family Aid centre and document your visit, order copies of the police visit and any other evidence/witness testimonies you may have of people that might have seen/heard the outbursts. Consult an immigration attorney familiar with I-360 petitions.

It's good you have a police report and evidence. There is a USCIS process to claim abuse. You police report should further your cause. What it is, I don't know, but an atty should be able to help you.
