WATCH: Immigration Webinar: Violence Against Women Act (VAWA)


Watch video below


In case you missed it, immigration attorney, Ifeoma Odunlami hosted a free immigration webinar and gave a live presentation discussing the Violence Against Women's Act or (VAWA).


Ifeoma thought it was important to discuss VAWA because unfortunately, there has been an unprecedented rise in domestic violence due to staying home during the height of the COVID 19 season.


What is VAWA?


VAWA or the Violence Against Women Act offers protections and allows victims of domestic violence or spousal abuse to “self-petition” to obtain a green card without the cooperation of the U.S. citizen or permanent resident relative who is abusing them. VAWA applies to women, men, children, and parents of U.S. citizens.


VAWA since coming into law in 1994 has been amended multiple times, with each time giving more protection to victims of violence.
