The Legal Resource Center on Violence Against Women (LRC) will be offering a basic telephonic training on interstate custody issues on Thursday, July 10, 2014 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time. Participants will be given a toll-free telephone number to listen to the training.

This training will provide participants with an overview of the various federal and state laws that govern interstate custody cases. The training is designed for those who wish to understand the basic framework of how these laws fit together. Case scenarios will be used to demonstrate how participants can help survivors address the economic, safety and legal issues involved when they cross state lines for safety. Participants will have an opportunity to ask questions during the presentation.

The LRC is a nonprofit organization based in Takoma Park, Maryland, that works to improve legal representation for domestic violence survivors in interstate custody cases. The LRC helps survivors to obtain legal representation for such cases and provides technical assistance to victim advocates and attorneys who are assisting victims in such cases.

All interested attorneys and advocates can find the registration form on the LRC website at the following link: http://www.lrcvaw.org/trainings.html. Please fax the completed form to the LRC office at (301) 270-7272. Registration is open until the training reaches capacity.
