Domestic physical and emotional abuse is a common problem in America. Annually in the USA from violence 10 million people are affected, reports PIX 11...

But violence cannot be tolerated, and immigration status in this case can be maintained. Below is information on what domestic violence is and where victims can seek help in New York City.

What's this

Domestic violence can include physical, sexual or emotional abuse, as well as sexual abuse and harassment:

  • the victim's current or former spouse or intimate partner;
  • a person with whom the victim has a common child;
  • a person who lives or lived with the victim as a spouse or intimate partner;
