Parents have a constitutional right in the care and custody of their children without regard to the parent's or the child's immigration status. Despite this, perpetrators of domestic and sexual violence against immigrant victims with whom they share children, commonly raise immigration status related issues in custody litigation. Abusers often provide the court with legally incorrect information about immigration law and how immigration law applies to the victim and the parties' children. This webinar will provide judges, attorneys, and advocates with legally correct information about the immigration relief available to battered immigrants and abused children. The webinar will discuss the most common immigration status related myths that are raised by parties in contested custody cases and will provide up to date immigration law information and best practices of applying state best interests of the child laws in custody cases involving battered immigrants and their children.
