As a battered spouse, child or parent of a U.S Citizen or green card holder you may file an immigrant visa petition under VAWA without the knowledge of your abuser. An approved VAWA petition can eventually lead to naturalization. Therefore, the law affords you the remedy to protect yourself & achieve safety and independence from their abuser, who is not notified about the filing.
