    Answered . You are wise to seek advice on this question. Whether it is better for you to proceed with your VAWA Petition or get married, withdraw the I-360, and file and I-130/I-485 is not a simple question. It is very circumstance specific. You should sit down face to face with an experienced immigration attorney (bring a copy of your I-360 filing) and go over all the details of your new relationship and the I-360 filing. Some attorneys in Cleveland (like me) will do this initial consultation without fee. You have a lot depending on the direction you take and how well you execute that direction.

    Answered . Re - Marriage ends the I-360 although there is no prohibition to re filing should a problem occur with the new marriage. Meet with your attorney so that you fully understand the processes for both the I130 or the I-360.
