VAWA Abuse Victims

I-360 – Victim Of Mental Abuse (Spouse, Widow, Child, Or Elder)

I-360 (VAWA) allows certain spouses, children, and parents of U.S. citizens and certain spouses and children of permanent residents (green card holders) to file a petition for themselves without the abuser’s knowledge. This allows victims to find both safety and independence from their abuser, who is not notified about the filing. The VAWA provisions apply equally to men and women and also to those that entered the U.S. without inspection.


A probate court or family court may find a child (under 21 years old) eligible for this classification if the child was abused, abandoned, or neglected by their parents. After the attorney successfully obtains SIJS classification, the child is eligible to concurrently apply for the I-360, Special Immigrant (as a juvenile declared a dependent in juvenile court) & the I-485, Application for Lawful Permanent Residency in the United States. Cancellation of Removal/10 years in USA.
