Immigration courts around the United States cannot require that a domestic violence survivor be married to her abuser. A new case was published by the Board of Immigration Appeals that says that marriage is not a requirement to get a green card based on asylum as an abuse victim.
Blandon Law proudly helps domestic violence survivors get their legal permanent residency, whether they apply based on the Violence Against Women Act or asylum. Unfortunately, in some countries -- like Guatemala or Honduras -- domestic violence is rampant and the police do not help at all. All team members at the Broward County immigration law firm speak Spanish. For help on your particular case, call 954-385-0157 and schedule a consultation.
