Responding to Immigrant Sexual and Domestic Violence Survivors Part I: Legal Rights to Access Health Care, Public Benefits, and Family Law Protections

July 20, 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

This webinar will provide forensic nurses, health care providers, and victim advocate attendees with detailed information on the full range of publicly funded benefits and services immigrant sexual and domestic violence survivors can access in their states. Some publicly funded benefits and services are open to all immigrants without regard to immigration status. Since public benefits and subsidized health care access expands for immigrant survivors who apply for victim-based immigration relief, participants will learn how to identify immigration relief eligible survivors. Public benefits eligibility varies by state, by form of immigration case, whether the victim is an adult or a child, and the type of benefit the victim is seeking. To support participants’ work with immigrant survivors the webinar will demonstrate how participants can use NIWAP’s new online benefits map and state-by-state charts. The webinar will conclude a brief overview addressing key facts participants need to know about immigrant survivors’ legal rights to obtain civil protection orders, custody of children, and child support. Webinar participants will receive links to tools and resources in the NIWAP on-line library on each of the topics discussed in this webinar.
