filed for what ?

seems he's been here a long time 

and would it be for citizenship   - 5 years in US  is long enough to apply on his own

for ROC?

do the divorce papers say he was abused?

are there police reports for abuse?

and who did the abuse ?  him or spouse?

Abusers can seek VAWA?

For ex-spouses, if marriage ends in divorce because of abuse or cruelty, you can still file a VAWA petition within two years of the end of the marriage.

Yes, thats what my understanding is.  I was wondering if there any ways to overcome that 2 years limit?

One thing strange thing he mentioned that, he got AOS interview notice in 2021 when divorce was done in 2016 (history- married USC & filed AOS 2014, Denied AOS 2015, won BIA Appealed 2016, div 2016, USCIS just did nothing for 5 yrs, then sent interview notice in 2021). He was not aware of vawa earlier. He filed VAWA after receiving  interview notice or something like that.

 

My question is, ...is that possible or he qualifies to file vawa (assuming other conditions met, what about  duration/timing )

 No, he did not file it within the required timeframe.

You can file for anything, getting approved is the tricky bit. If he had a BIA case I am sure he has a Lawyer.

A thousand red flags!

Did he submit the divorce decree at some point?

True...But can he file VAWA?

You do realize that there are actual criteria for a VAWA filing, right?  Divorce alone is not one of them.  Sounds like this person is grasping at straws to be able to find some loophole to stay in the US.....

I assume no otherwise why he would get the interview

All AOSers get an interview. Within a certain time frame ( I think it's two years) he could have applied and maybe a slight chance for approval.
