Q: I’m currently a temporary permanent resident and I’m married. However, my marriage involves a lot of emotional abuse.
You may do the following legal actions to retain levity and balance in your life:
1. Once you are physically threatened or abused call the police, make a police report documenting that abuse and domestic battery in applicable,
2. Go to the local criminal court and immediately file an Order of protection based on that police report from your abusive spouse. That will assure your physical protection. If he decides to abuse you, he will get arrested and criminally charged with an additional crime,
3. Initiate divorce proceedings to divorce that abusive spouse. You should not live in continuous fear of abuse and violence,
4. Finally, your abuser will not be able to deport you from the United States: it is not up to him and the U.S. Immigration laws protect abused spouses like yourself in a number of legally applicable ways.
