Hey guys I was wondering if my situation is valid enough to apply for VAWA. I am married to a USC and currently have DACA. I don't want to risk my current status. Furthermore, my spouse applied for an I-130 which has not yet been approved nor denied.
Here are the grounds on which I believe I may qualify for VAWA. Spouse recently hit my face which made a blood vessel in my eye rupture and I have a healing bloody eyeball. I have pictures and I also went to an optometrist about this. The damage was not bad but enough for me to see a doctor. Both of our families are aware of this incident. He hit me while I was having a panic attack and he says he did it to "calm me down" (???)
A few days later we were driving he threatened to punch me in the face and kill me. I have a video of this that he doesn't know about. Noone else knows I have this.. He also threatened to crash the car while we were driving. I texted his mom and my friend about this. I also have a thread of messages about this with my friend explaining everything and telling her I feared for my life.
Today he threatened to beat me. He said the words "I'll beat you." I called my parents after this incident.
I'm scared to call the police or to even tell my attorney or any other attorney because of the reprecussions. I really don't care much about the I-130 at this point. I'm just really stressed out and have a lot of anxiety of the entire problem. I have been extremely irritable because we don't get along which has escalated our arguments to him being aggressive and violent.
One last thing is that he finished probation for possession of marijuana recently. He also currently has some out our apartment and gets high everyday. It stresses me out to be around it bc I have the pressure to be squeaky clean. I've also been afraid he would get int trouble for it in past if I called the police. Now, I think I could use it in my favor if I were to apply for VAWA but I am. not sure?
