Content

This webinar on basic interstate custody issues 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.
