  • I 360 Vawa petition advice

    Hello everyone. am new to this site and i went through some of the discussion and i hope that you can be of help to me in a way.
    i am from kenya, i got married to my american husband in my country be fore i came here to the united states.
    we have been married for 5 years now and we have a daughter together. i have a son from a previous relationship, but my husband has not yet adopted him.
    when we got here, my husband became very abusive and was an alcoholic. i have been separated from him for 1 and a half years now. we got into a fight and he tried to choke me, but i grabbed his pony tail and for that i ended up being arrested even though the police know about me since i had called them previously on numerous occasions.
    i was oredered not to go back to my husbands house and he has a restarining order against me. i had one for him when he got arrested but i droppped the charges for fear of what himand his family would do to me..
    i knew no one in this country since i was never allowed to leave the house. i had no friends and the only people that knew of my situation was my family back home.
    i applied for an I 360 after i got a letter in the mail almost 4 months after i left my husband that my green card was denied and i was instructed to leave the country.
    my I1360 was approved and i was given 180 days to file evidence.
    i did just that and i even got the police records i had on him. i sent it all to Vermont, but to date no one has responded to me yet.
    My visa expired in december and my green card was denied because he renounced his sponsor ship. my son got his GC and am so thankful to God that he did not ruin his future.
    MY problem is at the moment, my work permit has expired, my drivers license, and my visa. i fear to get around..and also the letter from USCI vermont granting me 180 days to file my paperwork also expired.
    how do i work while i wait for the petitioon to be granted? and howdoi go abt it?
    he currently has temp custody of our 4 year old daughter and my son. i havent seen them since i was taken away that night its been 1 year and 7 months...please help me...

    Hi and welcome to the forum,

    Hopefully, you have enough evidence of a bona fide marriage.

    How is your ex keeping your kids away from you, particularly your son who's not even his child?

      Vijourex, welcome. Pardon me but I can see three b.umpy spots in your post. First, why should you be arrested by simply pulling his pony tail if the police knew that he's a wife beater? Second, 180 days is quite long for you to compile documentary evidence to prove to USCIS that he's an abuser. The period expired and you failed to comply, why? Third and last, why was paternal custody of the children granted to him when most custodial court rulings tend to lean toward maternal care during children's tender years?

      Discussion boards like this can sometimes help up to a point, but your case is quite complex you should consult face to face with a lawyer.

        I don't understand how her son was able to get his gc since the husband didn't adopt him.

        Anyway, I agree that a good lawyer is in order at this point.

          Procedurally, that's OK, P. No legal adoption is necessary for a stepchild of a USC to gain immigration benefit. And it's not unheard of for an alien stepchild (derivative beneficiary) to have a GC while the alien parent (principal beneficiary) don't get it at the same time.

I have a similar situation but mine is the inverse coz i was the one that was abused....and actually the lady who has made my marriage come to this end is from Kenya....take care and good luck.

                      if your 'husband' whom of course you married in good faith, (the idea of leaving that great nation called kenya had nothing to do with this phony marriage) has not adopted that kid of your in five years should tell you something. Oh, what a tangled web we weave... in the end every lie and deception comes to light. Better go back where you came from and stop making your proble our problem.

                        That's the idea behind this discussion board. People discuss about immigration issues. Repeat: immigration. I wonder what's the business of being here of those who know nothing about it, apart from the rotten c.rap they sling around.

                          I'm really sorry to hear about your plight. My suggestion wouldbe to try calling Vermont. I've called them before on another topic and eventually go through (it took me an hour or so but it's worth it in your situation). They could either direct you to resources or maybe even help in the expediency of your status.

                          Good luck. Let us know how it goes.

                              Thank you for replying. The police arrested me because as we were fighting and he together with his mother kicking and punching me, i held on to his hair and pulled it out, so i was charged for that. even though they knew about his drunk behaviour in the past and statements i had written. his father is very close friends with the judge that was on my case, am not saying he had anything to do with t, am just pointing it out.
                              The 180 days is the grace period the vawa petition gives you, after you have been told to leave and you open a case with them. if you are familiar with vawa petitions, after you first apply with them, they will give you 180 days grace period while they look into ur case to see if it is even valid, then they will send you letters for more evidence. i did comply and they have all the evidence they needed.
                              why the custody was given to him, i am guessing is because his mother didnt want me in her house again ( we lived with his parents) and so, i could not take care of the kids without knowing where am going...am guessing i dunno. I do have a lawyer, but am also in this forum to learn as mucha s i can about this situation. Imagine being left to fend for yourself in a foreign country and you know NO ONE apart from the person your married to? he didnt want me to have any friends or socialize.
