Special Immigrant Juvenile Brochure

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services has published a Special Immigrant Juvenile (SIJ) brochure for juvenile courts and child welfare professionals. The brochure provides an overview of SIJ, eligibility requirements, the role of child welfare professionals and juvenile courts as well as tips and resources.  It provides helpful information for lawyers working on these issues, both full time and pro bono lawyers.
