Millions of women in the modern world are subject to discrimination, deprivation and violence. Often, women become victims of violence in their own family. Fortunately, America is one of the few countries where women’s rights are not only guaranteed at the legislative level, but also protected in practice.
An important aspect of US legislation is that it provides immigration opportunities to women victims of domestic violence in the United States and abroad, as well as to victims of violence and harassment by the state and society in their home countries.
That is why a significant part of our practice is devoted to immigration assistance to women and getting them to Green Cards. There are many immigration options available to women who want to become permanent residents of the United States. Among others, special are:
Receiving asylum for women who are persecuted or afraid of persecution because of their race, religion, citizenship, membership of a particular social group, political opinion (read more)
Immigration for lesbian women and their female spouses (read more)
In all of the above cases, women can also include their underage children in their immigration petition.
If you want to discuss whether these or other immigration options are available to you, please sign up for a consultation with an experienced Russian-speaking immigration lawyer in Los Angeles.
