    Should I Stay or Should I Go? Helping Domestic Violence Survivors with Interstate Cases

    REGISTER

    Has a domestic violence survivor ever asked you if she can leave the state with her children?

    Have you ever worked with a survivor who has fled to your state with her 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?

    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.
