Description: Have domestic violence survivors ever asked you if they can leave the state with their children to escape from abuse? The Legal Resource Center on Violence Against Women (LRC), in partnership with the American Bar Association Commission on Domestic and Sexual Violence, will be offering an interactive legal training on interstate custody issues for LAV grantees and others on March 9, 2023 EDT. The training will be delivered through two consecutive Zoom webinars. Faculty will include Deborah Goelman, Darren Mitchell, Maria Veniard, and Taylor Duran. The LRC is OVW’s technical assistance provider on interstate civil legal issues. The training is designed for attorneys who may be new to this area of law. Faculty will provide participants with an overview of the various federal and state laws that govern interstate custody cases and an opportunity to practice making legal arguments to protect survivors. The program will cover how to interview survivors who are contemplating relocation and how to provide legal advice on the economic, safety and legal issues involved when survivors cross state lines with their children.
