Practice Manual for Pro Bono Attorneys Representing Detainees with Mental Disabilities in the Immigration Detention and Removal System (2nd Ed. Jan. 2013)

977.6 KiB with 5,649 hits, posted January 17, 2013

(Revised and Updated for 2013) This Practice Manual is designed to help attorneys represent aliens who have mental health issues throughout the immigration detention and removal (deportation) process. The inherent complexity of the immigration legal process and stress of detention presents problems to all detained aliens, but especially to those with mental health issues. As this Practice Manual is designed as a practical guide for attorneys to navigate the labyrinthine immigration system, it is not exhaustive. Particularly on specific legal points, we urge practitioners to consult experience immigration attorneys and the supplemental materials referenced throughout the manual.
