Carter Ledyard Continues Work with Her Justice

CL&M is continuing its work with Her Justice (formerly inMotion), a nonprofit organization providing free legal services to women in need. CL&M attorneys are assisting victims of domestic violence in completing U Non-Immigrant Visa petitions. U nonimmigrant status allows victims of crime and family members to remain lawfully in the U.S. in nonimmigrant status for up to 4 years, and also, with certain conditions, grants U nonimmigrants the right to apply for and obtain Lawful Permanent Residence after 3 years in U nonimmigrant status. Importantly, a U nonimmigrant may be granted employment authorization while a U nonimmigrant status petition is pending.
CL&M attorneys will also assist a mother with a custody or visitation petition in order to help the mother gain legal custody of her child or to establish a beneficial visitation schedule that is agreeable to the mother. 
Hugo E. Arenas, Michael H. Bauscher, Bryce C. Bernards, Christine A. Fazio, Karen E. Meara, Katherine A. Mirett, Emily K. Sheahan, Libby B. Varghese, and Judith Wallace are currently advising four women and helping them complete the various documents required to file their U Non-Immigrant Visa petitions. Bryce C. Bernards, Iliza F. Bershad, Anne K. Gerson and Madelyn K. White will assist a woman with her custody or visitation petition.
