VAWA Adjustment of Status

Approved VAWA self-petitioners may be eligible to adjust regardless of their manner of entry in the U.S.  In other words, even if an approved VAWA self-petitioner entered without inspection ("EWI"), she may still be eligible for adjustment of status.  In addition, there are numerous other waivers of inadmissibility and deportability that benefit approved VAWA self-petitioners applying for adjustment of status.  For example, an exception to the public charge ground was added that eliminates the need for an approved VAWA self-petitioner to submit an affidavit of support.  Special provisions also apply to approved VAWA self-petitioners seeking to adjust status relating to certain criminal grounds of inadmissibility, prior removal and departure, and fraud or willful misrepresentation.
