Guardianship Planning for Undocumented Immigrants Clinic
August 12th 9:00 am until 1:00 pm Mi Tierra Restaurant in Little Village 2528 S Kedzie Ave, Chicago, IL 60623
Volunteer attorneys and interpreters needed!
In partnership with the Consulate General of Mexico, CVLS will be providing guardianship assistance for immigrant families at a free legal clinic in the heart of Chicago’s Hispanic community. Volunteers are needed to advise families on the forms of guardianship available in Illinois and, in appropriate cases, assist families in completing short-term guardianship forms on site. The goal of this clinic is to provide undocumented parents with a legal safety plan for their children in the event of the parents’ detention or deportation.
This is a limited scope pro bono opportunity that does not require any representation of clients after the clinic date. Training for this opportunity is via an online video. CVLS staff will be on site to provide supervision and guidance.
Email Rebekah Rashidfarokhi to register for this event. Please indicate if you speak Spanish or if you will need an interpreter. If you are not a registered CVLS volunteer, please also provide your phone number, address, ARDC number, and date of admission to the Illinois bar in your email.
