Beyond Borders: Protecting Abused, Neglected, and Abandoned Immigrant Children

Friday, October 7, 2016 (CLE 1:00 – 5:00 p.m. & Social 5:00 – 6:00 p.m.)
Hotel Monaco (5th Avenue Room), 506 SW Washington St, Portland, OR 97204

Each year, children located in Oregon are in removal proceedings despite being neglected, abused, or abandoned by their parents. Many of these children qualify for relief from deportation or removal proceedings as a Special Immigrant Juvenile Status (SIJS) child. However, one of the first steps in the process is gaining state specific findings.

This free half day CLE presented by the ONLD in conjunction with the sponsors below will help train attorneys on how to represent juveniles when seeking state court specific SIJS findings. As part of the CLE, attorney's will gain useful forms and access to individuals knowledgeable in the various areas of law that allow for the state court specific findings.
