The Stakes Are Even Higher for Non-Citizens
For non-citizen spouses who wish to divorce but are fearful of being deported to their home country as a result, there is a large potential for abuse of the Violence Against Women Act (“VAWA”). Simply by claiming to be a victim of domestic violence — even where the allegations are patently false — a non-citizen spouse may put herself or himself on a fast track toward obtaining a green card. In this way, our government has provided an incentive for someone to falsely claim domestic violence — to the detriment of the innocent spouse.
A charge of domestic violence or spousal abuse puts you at risk of having your private life become public information. An experienced criminal defense attorney will be sensitive to all aspects of your case, both inside and outside the courtroom. Your reputation and your future are at stake. If you are not a U.S. citizen, a domestic violence conviction could affect your immigration status and ultimately lead to deportation.
Seek Skilled Legal Help
A skillful defense lawyer can raise issues that may resolve a case without the necessity of going to trial and without the necessity of admitting to the charge or pleading guilty. The sensitive nature of these cases makes it all the more important that you retain a battle-tested attorney who will fight for you till the end.
