This ASISTA practice advisory was created in response to reports of long delayed VAWA adjustment cases. In consultation with the Office of the CIS Ombudsman, this advisory contains updates in processing as well as some practice pointers to avoid and to address delays in the processing of your cases.
Here is ASISTA's first bulletin written by staff attorney Hisham Leil. This bulletin has brief updates on developments in immigration law, not specific to survivors of violence, but that may affect them. We hope to provide these bulletins on a regular basis.
ASISTA's VAWA 2013 analysis and practice pointers with important contributions from several of our allies (see document for details). Please let us know if you have any further thoughts on how VAWA 2013 provisions may be implemented or interpreted most helpfully for survivors. We hope to provide input to USCIS as they draft regulations and, as ever, your feedback is welcome and essential.
