Josephine* is a close victim of human trafficking. She married an American citizen whom she had dated many years before they reconnected. Her husband promised her the world and even applied for her immigration status. Once he brought her to the United States, he denied her access to the outside world and limited her access to certain rooms in their house.
After four years of marriage, her husband filed for divorce. Legal Aid attorneys helped Josephine file an Answer and Counter-petition, and are preparing her case for trial. Meanwhile, Josephine enrolled in school and earned her CAN certificate with an ultimate goal of becoming an RN.
