When you left your native country and obtained a green card to live in the U.S. as a permanent resident, you may have decided to leave your plans uncertain. Perhaps you left family in your homeland, or you wanted to see if your search for employment would be profitable. Whatever path you took when you came to Colorado, you are now happy living here and want to take the next step.
You may have friends or family members who have obtained their green cards through the sponsorship of a relative or employer. A green card grants permanent residence status to the holder, opening many benefits and protections. If you want this status for yourself, there may be one thing holding you back: The person who would sponsor you is also your abuser.
When you decided to come to Colorado to build a new life in the United States for yourself and your family, you likely encountered various challenges as you navigated the immigration process. It is crucial that you fully understand all regulations that apply to your situation to avoid major delays or problems as you bring your immigration plans to fruition.
