Should They Stay or Should They Go: Helping Domestic Violence Survivors with Interstate Cases

Event Date
Wednesday, October 07, 2020, 12:00PM

Have domestic violence survivors ever asked you if they can leave the state with their children?

Have you ever worked with survivors who have fled to your state with their children for safety?

Do you know what to do when a court in one state has entered a custody order and a court in another state has entered a protection order about the same children?

The Legal Resource Center on Violence Against Women (LRC), in partnership with the Battered Women’s Justice Project, will be offering a webinar on basic interstate custody issues for Improving Criminal Justice Responses (formerly Arrest) grantees on October 7, 2020, from 12:00-1:30 p.m. EST.

This webinar will provide participants with an overview of the various federal and state laws that govern interstate custody cases. It is designed for attorneys, victim advocates, and other community partners who wish to understand the basic framework of how these laws fit together. Case scenarios will be used to demonstrate how practitioners can help survivors address the economic, safety and legal issues involved when they cross state or tribal lines to flee abuse. Participants will have an opportunity to ask questions during the presentation.
