Questions & Answers for Immigrant and Refugee Women


You have a right to be free from violence in your own home

The Family Violence Prevention Fund has made this helpful brochure available in English, Spanish, Arabic, Chinese, Tagalog, Vietnamese, Russian, and Korean.


What is "domestic violence"?

Is your partner (husband, boyfriend, or "ex") extremely jealous and does he discourage you from speaking to friends or family? Does he prevent you from getting a job or learning English? Has your partner ever threatened to take away your children? Has he told you that he will have you deported?

Have you ever been hit by your partner? Has he forced you to have sex when you did not want to? Has he ever threatened to harm you with weapons like guns, knives or other objects?

Does your partner claim that his violence is your fault? Has he ever told you his violence is not serious? Does he blame drugs or alcohol for his violent behavior? Does he make you feel like you are crazy? Does he call you names that are hurtful and shameful to you?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you are not alone. Many other women like you are in the same situation. Your partner's behavior is not your fault. Help is available to you.

Domestic violence tends to get worse over time. It does not go away on its own. We will outline some things you can do to protect yourself and your children from continuing violence.

We will refer to the abuser as "he." Some women are abused by other women, and some men are abused by women. While not all the legal remedies will apply to lesbian relationships, we will still provide some basic information about things you can do to make yourself safe. We will use the term "partner" to refer to a husband, boyfriend, or "ex" who may be abusing you.



What can I do?

There are a variety of services available to assist you to stop the violence in your home: shelters, hospitals, police, legal aid and other community services.



Should I leave my home if I am in danger?

YES. Go to a friend's house or a battered women's shelter. Shelters are usually free and often will have information about other services available in your community. If you stay with a friend or a family member, keep your location secret if possible. You have the right to keep your immigration status private.

If you leave your home, make every effort to take your children with you. It is also helpful if you can bring documents, such as:

driver's license

identification

passports

visas for yourself and your children

birth certificates

documents from any public assistance programs

rental agreements

checkbooks

credit cards

paycheck stubs

marriage license

copies of tax returns for yourself and your partner.

Information about your husband also can be helpful. If you cannot get a copy of his resident alien card or certificate of naturalization, copy down the information from those documents on a piece of paper. If you think you may need to leave in the future, pack these items in a bag so you can find them quickly as you leave or take them to a friend's home.



Should I call the police?

YES. Domestic violence is against the law. The police can escort you and your children out of the house if you want to leave and often can take you to a safe place. Officers may arrest your partner if they believe a crime has been committed. If the police officer does not speak your language, find someone other than your child or abuser to interpret for you.

Always ask the police to complete a report about the incident and get an incident report number so you can get a copy of the report. Also ask for and write down the name and badge number of the officer making the report. The police generally will not turn in a woman reporting domestic violence to the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS).

If your partner is taken into custody, he may be released in as soon as two hours. Use this time to find a safe place to go.



I have heard of protection orders. What do they do?

A protection order can keep the abuser from coming near you, attacking, sexually assaulting or contacting you, your children, or other family members.

Along with this protection order, in most states you also can ask for custody of your children and child support. In most states, you also can ask that the batterer be removed from your home and that the batterer not interfere with your immigration status.

You do not need to be a citizen or legal resident to get a protection order. For a protection order to be effective, you must be willing to call the police to enforce the order.



Can I get protection even if I am not a U.S. citizen?

YES. You do not need to be a citizen or legal permanent resident to get a protection order. A lawyer may be helpful, but it is not necessary to have one in order to get a protection order.

Applications are generally available at courthouses, women's shelters, legal services offices, and some police stations. A court generally will not ask about your immigration status when you ask for a protection order, a child custody order, or a dissolution. Ask a legal services attorney (i.e., attorneys who provide free legal services to low-income individuals) or an immigrant advocacy group in your area about the policy in your court.



How can I get lawful permanent residency without my husband's help?

A law passed by the U.S. government called the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) creates two ways for women who are married to U.S. citizens or lawful permanent residents to get their residency.

The first is called "self-petitioning." Instead of depending upon your husband to apply for your residency with INS, you can apply on your own for yourself and your children. Your husband plays no role in the process and does not have to know you are applying for residency.

However, because the law is complicated, you should not go to the INS without first consulting a shelter worker, immigration attorney, or a domestic violence or immigration agency for assistance.

The second way to obtain residency is called "cancellation of removal." This is available to you only if you are in, or can be placed into, deportation proceedings. If you qualify for cancellation, the court may waive your deportation and grant you residency. However, because you must be in deportation proceedings before you can apply, be certain to see an immigration attorney before proceeding.

If you don't seem to qualify under VAWA, don't despair. There may be other ways you could get immigration status, such as a new visa Congress has created for crime victims. The best thing to do is to discuss your situation with an immigration or domestic violence advocate (DO NOT CALL INS.).


My husband is threatening to take my children away if I leave him. What can I do?

If your partner is threatening to take your children away or take them to his home country, you should:


Immediately get a custody order. This order can include an order to prohibit your husband/intimate partner from removing the children from the country in which you live.


If the children are U.S. citizens, send a copy of this order to the embassy of your partner's home country and a copy to the U.S. Department of State to prevent the issuance of passports and visas for the children.


Give a copy of the order to the children's schools and tell the schools not to release the children to anyone but yourself.


Make sure that you have recent photos, passports and birth certificates for the children. Keep a list of addresses and phone numbers of your husband's/intimate partner's friends and relatives in his home country.



How can I support myself and my children if I leave my husband?

The law requires that the father of your children support them, even if you are living apart, even if you were never married to him, and without regard to immigration status. You should contact a family lawyer or a domestic violence advocate to find out how to obtain child support in your state. Some married women also may be eligible to receive spousal support or alimony.

Lawful permanent residents may use their "green cards" or resident alien cards to demonstrate their eligibility to work. Refugees and other immigrants must apply for authorization to work. An immigration attorney will be able to tell you whether you are eligible for work authorization. It is very important that you do not use false papers to work or make false claims of United States citizenship.



I am a legal permanent resident. Am I eligible to receive welfare and Medicaid?

Some legal permanent residents are eligible for Food Stamps, although most legal permanent residents are not. Eligibility for Medicaid, Temporary Aid to Needy Families, and general assistance by legal permanent residents varies from state to state. You should consult an immigration or domestic violence advocate in your area.



I am a refugee. Can I receive welfare and Medicaid?

In the first five years after they arrive in the United States, refugees are eligible for Food Stamps, Temporary Aid to Needy Families, Medicaid, and other public benefit programs to the same extent as U.S. citizens.

Most refugees who have been in the United States for five years or more will no longer be eligible for Food Stamps. Eligibility for Medicaid, Temporary Aid to Needy Families, and general assistance by refugees who have been in the United States for five years or more varies from state to state. You should consult an immigration or domestic violence advocate in your area.



I am undocumented. Can I receive welfare and Medicaid?

If you are a battered undocumented woman whose husband has applied for legal permanent residency on your behalf, or if you have applied for legal permanent residency under the Violence Against Women Act, you are eligible for the same benefits as a legal permanent resident. (See above.)

If you are not eligible to apply for legal permanent residency, you will be ineligible for most forms of welfare. However, you are still eligible for emergency Medicaid. Contact an immigration or domestic violence advocate to help you find "safe" hospitals that will not report your undocumented status. You also are eligible for services from community groups, such as food distribution by churches, and assistance from domestic violence shelters.



Are my U.S. citizen children eligible for public benefits and Medicaid?

YES. Even if you are undocumented, your U.S. citizen children are eligible for public benefits just as other citizen children are. However, if you are undocumented, DO NOT reveal your immigration status when applying for benefits on behalf of your children, even if you are asked. The welfare office does not need to know what your status is in order to give benefits to your citizen children.



Will I be deported if I take any of the above actions?

If you are now a U.S. citizen, or you are a lawful permanent resident, or you possess a valid visa, you cannot be deported unless you entered the United States on fraudulent documents, violated conditions of your visa, or have committed certain crimes.

If you are undocumented or are unsure about your immigration status, you should seek the assistance of an immigration attorney to see if you can legalize your status. Until then, you should do what you need to do to make yourself safe.

Even if your husband/intimate partner were to report you to the INS, deportation may not follow, would not be immediate, and, in most cases, you would have the opportunity to present your case to a judge.



Will my husband/intimate partner be deported if I take action?

NO. If you seek assistance from a shelter or lawyer, it is extremely unlikely to result in the deportation of your partner.

If you contact the police and your partner is convicted of a crime, he may be deported, depending on his immigration status and the seriousness of the crime.

It is important to remember that you must keep yourself and your children safe. It is your partner that has put himself at risk by his actions.



Do I need to see an immigration attorney even if I cannot afford one?

Do not go to the INS without a lawyer or consulting with a lawyer. Your conversation with the attorney will be confidential, and he or she cannot report you to the INS. If you cannot afford to pay an attorney, contact the nearest legal services office or an immigration organization.

Barriers


Battered immigrant women face many difficult barriers. The obstacles they encounter can be attributed to a combination of language, culture, citizenship status, or lack of access to services.

In addition to the physical violence, a battered immigrant woman may experience:
    ISOLATION:
    The abusing partner often keeps his victim isolated from family and friends - and from anyone who speaks her language. He also may not allow her to learn English.

    THREATS:
    He may threaten to report her to the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) and get her deported. Or he may threaten to
    withdraw the petition to legalize her immigration status.



    INTIMIDATION:He may hide or destroy important papers (such as her passport, identification card, Green card, health insurance card). He also may destroy the only property she has from her country of origin, including important mementos.



    CITIZENSHIP OR RESIDENCY PRIVILEGE USED AGAINST HER: The abusive husband may fail to file papers to legalize her immigration status, or withdraw (or threaten to withdraw) papers that have been filed.



    ECONOMIC ABUSE:
    He may report her to the INS if she works "under the table" -- or threaten to do so. He may not let her obtain job training or schooling so she can become financially independent.



    EMOTIONAL ABUSE:
    The abusive spouse may lie about her immigration status. He may write lies about her to her family and friends. He may call her racist names.



    CHILDREN USED:
    He may threaten to take her children away from the United States, or to report her children to the INS. Or he may threaten to hurt them.



    LANGUAGE BARRIERS:
    When a battered immigrant woman tries to get assistance from a domestic violence agency, she may not be able to use the help that is offered because it is not in her language and no one is available to translate.



    CULTURAL ISSUES:
    Services provided by domestic violence programs may not address relevant cultural issues, so the agency may propose ideas that are not culturally appropriate or may not be able to offer her the right kind of assistance.



    LACK OF ACCESS TO SERVICES:
    Domestic violence agencies may not understand the intricacies of immigration law and issues, and therefore be unable to help her solve her problems. Immigration agencies or attorneys may not recognize the signs of domestic violence, or know how to help.

:a_hello Девочки, а что делать человеку, который в этом году только приехал в городок Инвернесс в Флориде. Английский слабый, работы нет, машины и прав нет, в стадии развода. Муж уехал - денег и адреса не оставил. Зато в записке не забыл упомянуть, что она ответственна за вывоз мусора. Телефон, интернет, телевизор отключил.
С ней живет сын подросток, у него только 10 часов работы в неделю в Макдональдсе. Но и это еще не все. На нервной почве видимо здоровье стало сдавать - нужно срочно делать маммограмму. Ни медстраховки, ни денег нет. Куда обращаться посоветуйте. Это просто кошмарная ситуация.

:a_hello Это штат Флорида, маленький городок Инвернесс. С документами все в порядке, она приехала по визе жены. Они женаты почти 20 лет, только он уехал в Америку намного раньше и вот, наконец, забрал жену и сына. Девочки, может кто знает какие-то флоридские организации, которые могут помочь ей с устройством на работу. Интернет- это единственное средство связи у нее (в библиотеке).
И можно ли так поступать мужу - идут слушания по разводу, а он уехал и все, даже копейки не оставил. Написал, вернусь нескоро. А как им жить? :angel
