Good Moral Character in Montgomery County VAWA Applications

The law makes it possible for victims of domestic battery to obtain a Green Card under the VAWA. However, in order to accurately complete the application, you would have to prove that you possess good moral character. If you believe that you would encounter great difficulty completing this section of the application, contact a skilled attorney with experience in dealing with good moral character in Montgomery County VAWA applications.

What is Good Moral Character?

Good moral character is requested by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service (“USCIS”) in order to show that an applicant is a person who follows the law and is seen in their community as a good influence. It is hard to say that a person is of good moral character, but to show that the person does not have any criminal background (or at least any serious criminal background) would help them be seen as a good person in their community.

Proving Good Moral Character in a Montgomery County VAWA Application

A VAWA (“Violence Against Women Act”) applicant would be able to go to a police station and receive police clearance for the locations in which they had lived for at least six months within the last three years, as proof of good moral character. The Applicant can go get state and federal background checks as well as letters of support from family and friends. However, in order to avoid any confusion or mistakes, it may be best to consult with an attorney for legal assistance.

Issues Preventing Someone’s Eligibility

If a VAWA (“Violence Against Women Act”) Applicant is someone who has a history of criminal issues with convictions, it is unlikely that they would be able to show that they are a person with good moral character.

If the VAWA (“Violence Against Women Act”) Applicant is not able to show that they are a person of good moral character, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (“USCIS”) may not grant them VAWA. It is important to show that an Applicant is a person of good moral character and if they think that they are going to have an issue with this, they should reach out to an immigration attorney to see if they are eligible to apply for VAWA.

Importance of Contacting an Attorney

In the event that you are struggling to prove to the USCIS that you have good moral character when applying for a Green Card under the VAWA, you should retain the services of a trusted immigration attorney as soon as possible. Not only could an attorney guide you through the application process, but they could also help you draft an argument potentially demonstrating to the USCIS that you have good moral standing.
