View Full Version : VAWA - please advise

05-26-2010, 04:38 PM
I'm entangled in an abusive relationship with my wife who is a US citizen. I'm looking at filing a VAWA petition. Following is the evidence I have gathered:

Evidence of abuse:
1. Texts/emails from my wife showing sexual humiliation and financial abuse
2. Letter from my therapist
3. Affidavits from 2 friends
4. My own affidavit (15 pages)
5. Medical report showing high blood pressure around the time of the abuse

Evidence of good faith marriage/joint residence:
1. Joint rental agreement
2. Joint bank account
3. Joint car insurance
4. Medical/dental/vision insurances through my job on which she is listed as dependent
5. Rental insurance
6. Cable/internet bill
7. Emails during our courtship

Evidence to show I am married to US citizen:
1. Her birth certificate
2. Our marriage certificate
3. Her divorce decree from previous marriage

Evidence of good moral character:
1. Local police reports I can get

Based on this evidence, what do you think my chances of approval are? Have any men gotten approved without showing physical abuse or police reports? Is there anything else I can do to strengthen my case?

How long you two have been married together?
Did she get her greencard/citizenship through marriage?
Did you file any police report?
Does she have a job?
Do both of you share the same ethnic background?
