Title: Relief Under the Violence Against Women Act of 1994 and Subsequent Legislation 

This proposed rule would amend regulations governing self-petitions for immigrant classification and related relief available to certain spouses, children, and parents who have been subjected to battery or extreme cruelty by their U.S. citizen spouses, parents, sons, or daughters, or lawful permanent resident spouses or parents. DHS also proposes to amend regulations governing petitions to remove conditions on permanent residence in which conditional permanent residents (CPR) request a waiver of the joint filing requirement due to battery or extreme cruelty by their U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident (LPR) spouses or parents.
