via Cancellation of deportation according to the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA), for battered non citizen spouse or child of an abusive U.S. citizen or permanent resident. 

Under the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA), certain victims of domestic violence who are in removal (deportation) proceedings can apply in front of an immigration judge to remain the U.S. with a green card. In order to qualify for VAWA cancellation of removal, you must show that:

  • you have been subject to battery or extreme cruelty by a U.S. citizen or legal permanent resident (LPR) spouse, child, or parent
  • you have been in the U.S. more than three years before you were put into removal proceedings
  • you have had good moral character for at least the past three years
  • your removal would cause extreme hardship to you, your children or your parents, and
  • you are not subject to any of the grounds of inadmissibility found in U.S. immigration law.
