Q: Can I be deported if i was abused by my spouse and i was also diagnosed with anxiety and depression after divorce
I have proof of her prostituting and dating another man while we were married
A: There is not enough context given to know why you are worried you might face deportation. You might qualify for VAWA or some other type of protection for spouses of U.S. citizens or lawful permanent residents who have been battered or subjected to extreme cruelty, but there is no way to know based on the information provided. You should consult with an immigration attorney to review your case and determine your options.
A: Your facts make out a very strong case for a VAWA application. You should retain counsel anywhere in the United States for representation. The violence against women act allows a spouse who is a victim of physical or emotional abuse in the marriage to petition for a green card without the participation of the other spouse, even if the marriage ends in divorce.
