February 25, 2020 - Many women who leave abusive relationships are dealing with multiple legal issues, each of which has an impact on the other(s). This webinar looks at the intersections among three common legal systems: family, criminal and immigration. It explores the challenges of ensuring appropriate information is shared from one system to another as well as the impact of outcomes in one on what happens in the others.
