Guardianship Planning for Undocumented Immigrants Clinic
September 17th 9:15 am Southwest Organizing Project 2558 W 63rd St Chicago, IL 60629
Volunteer attorneys and interpreters needed!
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. For additional information please email Rebekah at firstname.lastname@example.org.
