I am going through a nasty divorce with my marine husband who is violent. He is trying to get me deported. I need help. The judge seems also to be biased, against women and against foreigners.

   

Thanks for reaching out to Feminist.com and so sorry to hear about your situation. Sanctuary for Families is a group that focuses on violence against women, but one of their specialties is specifically immigrant women. I think that might be the best starting place for you — and though they are based in New York City, hopefully they can point you to another group in California or be able to help from afar.
