Attorneys attending this program are given a historical perspective to the phenomenon of Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC) and the evolution of the laws that affect them.
They are provided an in-depth look at the laws enabling the relief and a step-by-step guide on how to obtain a custody order in North Carolina from filing with the clerk of court to the final custody hearing.
This program covers the best practices for applying for special immigrant juvenile status (SIJS) with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) and looks at current trends in North Carolina.
Participants walk through several common case scenarios in engaging small groups. The expectation is that each participant in this training accepts at least two pro bono cases from Legal Services of Southern Piedmont (LSSP) within a year of the training date representing a UAC residing in North Carolina.
The attorney will be fully supported by LSSP with technical assistance and guidance.
A special thank you to Legal Services of Southern Piedmont and the North Carolina Justice Center for their help with this program.
Planned by the NCBA Pro Bono.
