I married a US citizen, but after year of marriage we separated due to an abusive relationship. He threatened me to be deported.
If your VAWA application is granted, you will have a relief from removal (deportation). A prima facie case does not necessarily mean approval of the VAWA petition. USCIS can still ask for additional evidence in support of the VAWA claim. I suggest that you work with an immigration lawyer to guide you through the VAWA, removal, and adjustment processes.
