AAO Appeals

  AAO approves VAWA petition filed by 24 year old applicant (July 24, 2012)
In this decision, the Administrative Appeals Office determined that being under an abusive parent's control qualified as "one central reason for the filing delay" under INA 204(a)(1)(D)(v) and therefore excuses the failure to file an I-360 self petition before the applicant's 21st birthday.
  AAO decision on VAWA filing age for abused children
This decision clarifies VAWA requirement that the abuse be "at least one central reason for the filing delay" in cases where the children filed after they turned 21 (but before the age of 25).
