Unfortunately, domestic abuse is also a factor in immigration that must be considered with certain immigration applications. Employment Authorization Documents are necessary when a non-citizen wants to work in The United States. At times, an illegal domestic abuse victim finds themselves unable to continue on with immigration processes let alone apply for employment authorization without their former/current abusive partner. Another complication can often be a factor if the former/current spouse was admitted into the United States under nonimmigrant status. For those situations, there is an Application for Employment Authorization for Abused Nonimmigrant Spouse called form I-765V.
If you are (or were) the abused spouse of a nonimmigrant who was admitted under INA section 101(a)(15)(A), (E)(iii), (G), or (H) [admitted in A, E-3, G, or H nonimmigrant status], you may file for employment authorization. You had to have accompanied or later joined your abusive nonimmigrant spouse in the U.S. The following must be provided to file this application..
