On January 24, 2013, Blandon Law won asylum for a woman from El Salvador, who was in deportation proceedings before an Immigration Court judge. She was a victim of domestic violence and feared she would be killed by the father of her children if she returned to her country.
Survivors of domestic violence do not automatically win protection in the U.S., so we were very glad to be able to help our client.
We organized evidence for her and prepared her for the hearings before the Immigration Judge, to be sure she completely answered all questions asked of her. In addition, we worked with her therapist who wrote a report about the effects of the abuse she suffered. Now, she will be allowed to get work permit, drivers license in Florida, and bring her children as refugees.
If you, or someone you know, was a victim of domestic violence in their home country, please have them call Blandon Law at 954-385-0157. There are deadlines for asylum cases, so please have them call as soon as they can.
