Yes, ALL immigrants in the U.S. do have the right to live life free from violence and abuse. Haven Hills has been honored to serve the community in the San Fernando Valley area of Southern California for over forty years. We have become experts on the special challenges that immigrants to the U.S. face.

Does your partner threaten you with deportation? Is your intimate partner trying to control you by threatening to withdraw your application for legal status?
Has your partner taken possession of important documents that are rightfully yours? Has your abusive partner taken, hidden or destroyed legal documents or papers you need in this country such as passports, resident cards, health insurance or driver’s licenses?

Has your partner lied to you by threatening that you will lose your citizenship or residency if you report the physical or sexual violence to the police? Does your partner tell you that it is your fault he hurts you and says “if only you wouldn’t make him act this way,” he wouldn’t have to withdraw your immigration papers?
Has your partner caused you to lose employment? Has your intimate partner tried to get you fired from your job by Read More →
