Part 1: Legal Remedies for Immigrant Survivors: Introductory Seminar

Topics:
  • Abused Spouses and Children/VAWA
  • Advocacy

In this 4-part skills-based seminar series, participants will learn to identify survivor-based immigration remedies, conduct a thorough legal intake, assess a client’s facts to determine eligibility and identify red flags and analyze evidence to determine how to prove eligibility for relief. Participants will have the opportunity to practice these skills through hands-on activities. Some homework will be required.

Session 1: Assessing Relief: An Overview of Survivor-Based Immigration Protections

Immigrant survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking, human trafficking and other crimes often face myriad barriers accessing safety and justice. To combat these barriers, the bipartisan Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) and Trafficking Victims Protection Act (TVPA) created special paths to secure immigration status. In this interactive session, participants will examine these protections, take an in-depth look at their requirements, and assess which options may be best suited for your clients.
