Navigating the Intersection of Family and Immigration Law

Tuesday, November 15, 4-6 Screening Room, 82 State Street Newburyport


Sponsored with the Essex County Bar Association


Sometimes in the course of family law practice, issues regarding immigration law arise. Even if these occurrences are infrequent, they are often fraught with high stakes outcomes for clients. And the immigration laws are an intricate mix of federal law and state statutes that can have a collateral effect on immigration status. This program examines these issues according to the types of relief available and the status of parties. Are the parties married? Is there physical or financial abuse? Does the party have a Green Card or Lawful Permanent Resident status? Is it conditional? What is the status of the party seeking a divorce? Custody? What about juveniles? Adoptions?
