Day 5: Eddie’s Story

Originally from Mexico, Eddie is now a single father living here in East Tennessee. He approached our Office of Immigrant Services to get information on what he can do to help his daughter, as they are both victims of abuse by his spouse (who is a U.S. citizen). Eddie holds down two jobs in order to provide for his daughter, and he has the support and help from his mother-in-law as he navigates parenthood and our country’s complex immigration system.

The Office of Immigrant Services is assisting Eddie in obtaining immigration relief because of his victimization. Once he receives this benefit, Eddie will be able to find a better job and continue providing for the center of his universe, his sweet baby girl.
