The Violence Against Women Act, commonly known as VAWA, provides protection for immigrant spouses and children who have suffered abuse and cruelty at the hands of a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident.

There are two roads to protection under VAWA.

The first is through filing a self-petition with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services. 

The second occurs by filing for VAWA cancellation of removal at immigration court.   

Immigrants, facing deportation charges at immigration court, often do not know the differences, causing them to lose their cases.
