Petitions for Child and Spousal Abuse
Immigrants who are victims of abuse are living in fear, and all too often their abusers are the only people who have the ability to give them the freedom they deserve in the United States. The attorneys at The Law Offices of Greg Prosmushkin, P.C. can help these victims in the process of filing a petition to gain a green card without the help of those who abuse them.
To qualify for an abuse petition, a client must be:
- the spouse of a U.S. citizen or permanent resident who has abused the client;
- the parent of child who has been abused by their U.S. citizen or resident spouse;
- a parent who has been abused by their U.S. citizen or resident child;
- an unmarried, under the age of 21 child who is abused by their U.S. citizen or resident parent.
In normal cases of family-based immigration, a Philadelphia immigration lawyer would work with all parties to petition for a family member to be given a visa to remain in the United States. However, a Philadelphia immigration attorney needs to recognize the dangerous situation a client who is abused is in. An abuse petition allows for the client to file for a green card without giving their abuser any knowledge that the client is petitioning. Our lawyers' main goal is to provide a smooth, individual and private approach to filing for an abuse petition and gaining the freedom they deserve from their abuser and in this country.
The Philadelphia immigration attorneys at The Law Offices of Greg Prosmushkin, P.C. understand that in cases of abuse victims often shy from taking action against their abuser out of fear of retaliation. Our goal is to reassure clients that applying for an abuse petition is the safest and most effective legal way to break free and begin their independent lives. We work with our clients step-by-step through the whole process to ensure that everything is done in the quickest and most efficient possible manner.
