The Violence Against Women Act — Created to Protect You
The Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) helps not just women, but children, step families and even men. The Violence Against Women Act was introduced in 1991 as part of the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act. Our law office is here in Dallas enforcing it, protecting individuals who are victim of domestic violence. As a result of our efforts, family success stories have resulted and acts of abuse have been stopped.
Thanks to the VAWA, our voices are being heard and our actions taken seriously. Your efforts to call us and take a stand is the first step to a better tomorrow. When the Violence Against Women Act was enacted, new resources and options came into existence. We will help you determine the best path to safety and health. The Violence Against Women Act created a national domestic violence hotline and these directives that have made an impact for victims nationwide:
- Increased funding for battered women’s shelters
- New criminal penalties for domestic violence committed across state lines and interstate violations of protection orders
- Requirements for states to enforce orders of protection issued by other states
- Increased prison sentences for certain federal sex crimes, with perpetrators required to make restitution to victims
- Abilities for battered immigrant women to obtain lawful immigration status without relying on the assistance of an abusive citizen husband
- Funding for increased education on sexual assault and domestic violence and for studies of gender bias in federal courts
