THE WCBA's Immigration Committee in Association with KIND Presents Introduction to Representing Children in Immigration Matters

Please join us on Oct. 26th for a special joint presentation by the WCBA’s Immigration Committee and mentors from Kids In Need of Defense (KIND). 

This presentation will provide an overview of the child migrant crisis and explain how pro bono attorneys in the Westchester area can represent unaccompanied child clients in their immigration proceedings and secure them legal status in the United States through Asylum and Special Immigrant Juvenile Status.  The training covers the basics of practicing before USCIS, Immigration Court and New York State Family Court, and reviews the comprehensive mentorship KIND offers pro bono attorneys. By the end of the training, attorneys who take on a KIND case will be able to confidently identify the legal relief to which their client is entitled, and will feel comfortable setting up an initial meeting and working with a child client. KIND assigns a KIND attorney on every case that a pro bono attorney takes with KIND. The KIND attorney offers subject-matter expertise, answering substantive legal questions, providing samples and guidance, offering case strategies, reviewing pleadings before filing, and prepping attorneys before hearings and immigration interviews.
