Answer by attorney Eran Ben Ezra-Esq (practicing immigration law since 2004 with close to 100% success rate, handled thousand of cases personally and passed the bar Exams in the top 10%in the USA):
Having entered EWI is not a disqualifying factor for VAWA purposes. Speak with an experienced attorney - VAWA is a complicated matter. Had your friend talked to an immigration lawyer she would have already known that. We can help her. We have allot of clients that entered EWI and got their green card when filed for abused spouse petition. It is self petitioning application and the abusing spouse will never find out, that you filed it so you don't need to worry for retaliation from the USC abusing spouse. So if you went through mental or physical abuse and you entered legally or illegally to the country .You can still adjust your status and obtain your green card .So long your are not inadmissible on other grounds .Call us for more info .
