VAWA for Abuse Victims

Immigration laws can be extremely complicated.  Here we provide some basic information about immigration benefits available to victims of domestic violence. WomensLaw.org strongly recommends that you consult with an immigration lawyer with experience in VAWA before applying for any type of immigration status to see if you qualify for these or other forms of immigration relief.  For national organizations with experience in general immigration law, please see our Immigration page.  You can also find legal referrals on our Finding a Lawyer page.
