Sara Wins her U-Visa Case

December 06, 2013



My name is Sara. I am 55 years old and originally from Guatemala. I have been in the United States since 1989. I have four children born in Guatemala who currently reside with me. I am a survivor of domestic violence at the hands of my ex-husband. With the assistance of Mil Mujeres, I won my U-Visa case and now have legal immigration status and work authorization.
