It is estimated that there are approximately 500,000 undocumented persons under the age of 24 in California.
This program will discuss the forms of immigration relief available to undocumented immigrant children and immigrant adults who entered the United States as children, namely Special Immigrant Juvenile Status, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, asylum and U and T visas.
The program will also provide a context for these forms of relief and address: the difference between affirmative relief and relief in immigration court; factors to consider when applying affirmatively for an undocumented person; current government policy and relevant changes under the Biden Administration regarding these forms of relief.
In addition to newer immigration attorneys and other attorneys considering taking on a pro bono immigration case, this program may be especially useful to family law attorneys who
practice in Sonoma County’s probate and family court and are interested in collaborating with immigration attorneys on pro bono or low bono Special Immigrant Juvenile Status cases.
