Stalking is a crime that warrants special attention by courts because victims report experiencing stalking at much higher rates than the justice system identifies it, including cases involving immigrant survivors. Stalking can appear in any type of case and so judicial officers should consider stalking in all types of legal proceedings; it is particularly important to look for indicators when the parties know one another and/or there is evidence of ongoing harmful contact. Whichever type of case stalking occurs in, judicial officers are encouraged to make specific findings of fact regarding stalking, sign U and T visa certifications, and issue detailed orders designed to stop stalking behaviors, hold offenders accountable, and prevent dangerous consequences. This webinar will assist judicial officers in identifying stalking behaviors and effectively responding to stalking as a standalone issue and as it intersects with domestic violence, human trafficking, and in many family and civil court cases.
