Project Report | Jul 9, 2024
You Helped Paisley & Petal!

By Paula Lucas | Founder

Paisley had been living abroad with her daughter Petal and her abusive husband for several years. Petal had been born abroad and held dual nationality, but Paisley's husband never filed the papers for Paisley's residency so she was officially undocumented. Trying to divorce abroad meant the possibility of being deported and losing all access to her daughter.

We were able to communicate to the American Embassy on Paisley's behalf and come up with options.

We were also able to get Paisley a consultation with an attorney with expertise on the Hague Convention on International Child Abduction in the state she was returning to.

Paisley gathered all of her evidence of abuse, including abuse of Petal. The European country waived any penalties for Paisley's undocumented status due to domestic violence and they were able to flee back to the USA.

Petal's father will probably file a Hague petition against Paisley, but with her evidence, and pro-bono legal representation, we are confident they will be able to stay in the USA.

Petal is very happy to be living with her grandparents, playing outside in the summer sun, and of course, loving the flowers!

Thank you for supporting this project so victims like Paisley and Petal can flee home to safety! The Pathways Team
