Hi. I entered the USA with inspection and extend it also. Meanwhile I got married to my boyfriend in bona fide marriage in July 2014 while was still under the b2 . My i-94 ended September 2014. My husband signed the i130 and afidevit of support, yet made all kind problems to withhold me from sending it. We're married 5 month now and he's alcoholism is a big issue and since the marriage he takes it out on me abusive, cursing , abandoning me with anger, being racist against my religious and last week he threatened with Imigration deportation and evicted all my furniture, telling me to leave. We're at a delicate housing situation at his friend's home and if I would call the police so this friend would cick me out. So I didn't call the police. And reconcile with my husband to buy time coz he threatened also with anolment ! I recorded all the arguments and all his threats and even though we so called reconcile, I can't let it go I'm feeling sick and afraid from the next time. I still have 3 month before facing 180 days overstay. I want to submit vawa. Can I use my recordings as evidence? I don't know if any friend will give me a letter coz their also his friends plus the abuse happens within the house and hardly near people. Out side he praises me and try to look loving and supporting. He's doing nothing to help me even though we're very much inlove and he says how much he's lost without me coz I'm solid and caring. Do I have to submit i360 within the 180 days before I face 3 yrs ban? Or the count stops once submitting? What after an aprove? I'm still overstay? Or if it's a denail so my 180 days will start again? Pls help me understand the timing importance , I also need more time to gather evidence. Tnx Pearl

I can't answer your technical questions, but I'd be careful about your recorded evidence. Your profile says that you live in Florida where it is illegal to record another party without their consent. This proof is Inadmissable in a court of law. My husband went through a messy custody case where his ex wife tried to use a recorded conversation as evidence. It was deemed Inadmissable.

You should speak to a lawyer who can better guide you. When my husband and I did our I-130, I saw there were a section that mentioned that battered spouses can file on their own behalf. I'm assuming you will need proof for that, such as police records, witnesses, injuries documented at the hospital etc.

Transporterwife tnx, I'm not taking him to court. As I understand, immigration rules are same in all the USA . So in an interview with immigration officer, will my recordings have any statement? That was my only way to document his behavior .

I honestly do not know if they'll hold any weight seeing as electronic devices are not permitted for use during interviews anyways. And then there's the issue of authenticity of the aubject's voice (could be somebody acting etc) There are better ways to document it ie: seeing therapists/counsellor's. They're required both ethically and legally to report any sort of emotional abuse to authorities if it is indeed endangering one's life. Many times also keeping a specific, time sensitive journal of events may help as well documenting approximate time and date of the events.
