What is a VAWA self petition?


VAWA stands for Violence Against Women Act. Several immigration laws passed in 1994, 2000 and 2005 are collectively referred to as “VAWA.” These laws are intended to help the spouses (male or female) and children of U.S. citizens or lawful permanent residents who have been the victim(s) of domestic violence without the involvement of the abusive U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident spouse or parent to adjust their status.
