Green Card When There is Battering or Extreme Cruelty in Marriage

Green Card When There is Battering or Extreme Cruelty in Marriage
When there is domestic violence such as battering or extreme cruelty in a marriage to a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident, a beneficiary can petition for him or herself and receive a green card through this approved petition. This process can take place if an abusive spouse has already filed a petition for the beneficiary or even if they haven’t.

These situations can include:

  • physical violence
  • psychological abuse
  • controlling behavior
  • demeaning behavior
  • isolation from family and friends
  • withholding food and/or money
  • restricting freedom (taking the keys)
