Representing Immigrant Children: How to obtain Special Immigrant Juvenile Status

Monday, December 17, 2018 12:00 PM to 1:30 PM
Boston Bar Association - 16 Beacon Street, Boston, MA


Immigration remains a hot button issue in this country, and the problems facing unaccompanied immigrant children are particularly difficult. One avenue for relief, and a pathway to obtaining lawful permanent immigration status, is Special Immigrant Juvenile Status (SIJS).  This program will delve into the current trends in SIJS adjudications before USCIS, with a focus on the process for obtaining the requisite predicate order at the Probate and Family Court as well as the Juvenile Court.  Please join us for a panel discussion with attorneys who specialize in different fields for a discussion regarding SIJS relief and strategies for attorneys to become involved and help unaccompanied immigrant children.
