Special Immigrant Juvenile Status
Children who have been the victims of abuse, abandonment or neglect are among the most vulnerable immigrants in our society. These children may qualify for Special Immigrant Juvenile Status (SIJS), a pathway to becoming a lawful permanent resident. The presenters discuss the eligibility requirements for SIJS as well as the procedures for applying both affirmatively and defensively in removal proceedings. The presenters for this webinar are Sarah Bronstein and Kristina Karpinski, Training and Legal Support Attorneys with Catholic Legal Immigration Network.
