Special Immigrant Juvenile Status (“SIJS”) is a humanitarian form of immigration relief for children who have been abandoned, abused or neglected by a parent. Unlike many other forms of immigration relief, SIJS requires the involvement of the state court system. This panel will provide a general introduction to the stages of a SIJS case, including the role of state juvenile courts, applying for SIJS with U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services, and seeking adjustment of status (a green card) based on SIJS. We will discuss new strategies for success given the increasing challenges in SIJS cases.
