Should I Stay or Should I Go? Interstate Child Custody Issues for Domestic Violence Survivors

Thursday, May 24, 2018 ~ 8:30am PT / 11:30am ET

Presenters: Deborah Goelman, Executive Director, and Amie Lewis, Project Coordinator, Legal Resource Center on Violence Against Women

Have domestic violence survivors ever asked you about leaving the state with their children to flee from abuse? This webinar, presented by the Legal Resource Center on Violence Against Women (LRC), will focus on basic interstate custody issues for advocates, including relocation. The webinar will provide participants with an overview of the various federal and state laws that govern interstate custody cases and is designed for advocates who wish to understand how these laws fit together.  Case scenarios will be used to demonstrate how advocates can help survivors address the economic, safety, and legal issues involved when they cross state lines for safety. The LRC is a nonprofit organization based in Takoma Park, Maryland, that works to improve legal representation for domestic violence survivors in interstate custody cases. (90 minutes)
