Legal Resource Center on Violence Against Women: Using Jurisdictional Statutes to Assist Domestic Violence Survivors: Beyond the Basics

Event Type
Event Date
Thursday, February 16, 2017, 11:30AM

This training will build upon the foundation established by the LRC’s previous training programs, which provided participants with an overview of the various federal and state laws that govern interstate custody cases. The training is appropriate for attorneys and advocates who have participated in a previous LRC training and/or who have some experience with interstate custody cases. Training topics are selected based upon participants’ questions in previous trainings and on technical assistance requests. Among other topics, the training will address the following: strategies for advising clients who are contemplating leaving a jurisdiction with their children; the relationship between civil protection orders that include custody provisions and custody orders that have been issued as part of a custody or divorce case; the basis for continuing exclusive jurisdiction in a custody case under federal or state law; and recent and emerging trends in interstate custody practice and case law.

Questions: Any questions can be directed to Amie at (301) 270-1550 or at anl@lrcvaw.org.
