This training will cover the petition for Special Immigrant Juvenile (SIJ) status and the application for adjustment of status. We will review documents needed from family court to complete the SIJ petition and discuss adjustment eligibility requirements particular to SIJ applicants, including the exemptions from inadmissibility that apply to SIJ applicants as well as common inadmissibility issues not covered by these exemptions, age-out issues, and continuity of family court jurisdiction. We also will briefly cover the application for work authorization and practical issues when dealing with foster-care caseworkers, Administration for Children's Services, and family-court law guardians. This training will be conducted by Camille Mackler of the NYIC staff.
