Part 4: Legal Remedies for Immigrant Survivors: Introductory Seminar Series

Topics:
  • Other Immigration
  • 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 4:  Finding the Best Evidence to Support a Survivor’s Case

A critical skill in preparing any immigration application is effectively examining documents and other evidence that will best support your client’s case. In this webinar, participants will identify different evidentiary standards used in immigration matters, and what type of evidence U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) considers. Participants will also engage in exercises to help determine what documents may be most relevant to a survivor's case, where to find missing evidence, and what to do when evidence is not available.
