Navigating the Intersection of Family and Immigration Law

Tuesday, November 15, 2022

04:00 PM - 06:00 PM



Sometimes in the course of family law practice, issues regarding immigration law arise. Even if these occurrences are infrequent, they are often fraught with high stakes outcomes for clients. And the immigration laws are an intricate mix of federal law and state statutes that can have a collateral effect on immigration status. 

This program examines these issues according to the types of relief available and the status of parties. Are the parties married? Is there physical or financial abuse? Does the party have a Green Card or Lawful Permanent Resident status? Is it conditional? What is the status of the party seeking a divorce? Custody? What about juveniles? Adoptions?

Attend this program and learn:

  • When do I need to call an immigration lawyer?
  • How does the status of the parties affect the available relief?
  • When does a party qualify for a Green Card and what is the impact of a divorce
  • How should I handle an adoption when the child is not a US Citizen?
  • What is Special Immigrant Juvenile Status (SIJS)?
