06 Sep 2023 Battered-Spouse Green Card
Lance arrived in the U.S. in 2017 and married his U.S. citizen wife. The wife petitioned Lance for his green card, but the marriage turned rocky. Soon, the American wife started abusing Lance physically and verbally and even threatened to have him deported.
Upon a friend’s recommendation, Lance consulted with Atty. Gurfinkel.
Atty. Gurfinkel converted Lance’s case from a spousal petition to a VAWA (Violence Against Women Act) self-petition, which was approved in September 2022. Lance was able to get a “battered-spouse” green card.
