    Description:
    We were able to obtain permanent residency on behalf of a young Mexican woman who had come to the United States on a fiancée visa. Little did she know that her husband would later abuse her mentally and physically. We filed a petition on her behalf as the abused spouse of a US citizen. We later received a detailed five page request for additional evidence to show exactly how she was battered and abused. We responded by providing additional documentation and evidence as well as preparing a 13 page letter responding to their inquiries. The VAWA petition was approved and we were able to file for her residency. Nine years after she was brought to the United States and abused, she is now a permanent resident thanks to our office's determination and creative thinking.
