disjointed thoughts

   I "won" my first case. It was an administrative decision and they decided in favor of my clients!

    When I have more time to put my thoughts in order, I'll have to write about the VAWA (Violence Against Women Act)/immigration cases. Their courtships are so different. I take down declarations (their stories) and they talk about how they met their abuser and how they fall in love and all that. These men straight up tell them women they want to marry them on the first date. And the women tell the men they love them! No overthinking. No commitment issues. It feels primordial. Spoiler: all the men turn into abusers after the marriage, so maybe this kind of love isn't for everyone.
