Special Immigrant Juvenile Status: Virtual Pro Bono Clinic

April 2 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm

Many of you have been asking about remote pro bono opportunities during these unprecedented times. We are pleased to announce our upcoming Virtual SIJS Clinic for all interested volunteers.

Special Immigrant Juvenile Status (SIJS) is a pathway to US citizenship for eligible immigrant children who have been abused, abandoned or neglected by one or both parents. SIJS cases involve two parts: (1) a state court custody or guardianship case that places the child in the legal care of a parent or guardian, followed by (2) an immigration application for SIJS. For these cases, CVLS and the NIJC seek volunteers willing to represent the parents or guardians in uncontested custody and guardianship cases in Cook, Lake, Kane and Will Counties. Once the state court “predicate order” is obtained, the NIJC will take over the case for the immigration application.
