I empowered ambition when I assisted a pro bono client to obtain lawful permanent resident status in the United States under the Violence Against Women Act.
The client, a woman in her late thirties, had immigrated to the U.S. in her teens without proper authorization and became trapped in a physically and emotionally abusive relationship with a U.S. citizen with whom she shared two children. For nearly three years, I helped this client navigate United States Citizenship and Immigration Services paperwork and interviews, while simultaneously working to build her confidence in the promise of a brighter future for herself and her children. Ultimately, the adjustment of residency status enabled her to leave her abuser--who could no longer threaten to take her children and have her deported if she went to the police, obtain a rewarding job, and create a safe and loving home of her own.
