As the population of children in immigrant families continues to rise in the United States, state juvenile courts and child welfare agencies are becoming increasingly involved with immigrant families. When immigrant children and adults interact with the child welfare system, attorneys should know how to best address their clients’ needs. This webinar will provide a general, introductory overview of considerations for attorneys working with immigrant families and children using case studies at each phase of a child welfare court proceeding.
Produced for the Vera Unaccompanied Children Network.
