  • Custody issues and the legal status of children of LGBT people

Watch this on demand program to broaden your knowledge of domestic violence issues when working with diverse populations. You’ll learn that intimate partner violence occurs among lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) families at rates similar to non-LGBT families.

You’ll come away with a better understanding of how social forms of oppression such as heterosexism, homophobia, and transphobia create additional challenges for those in abusive relationships seeking supportive and protective services — and what you, as an attorney, can do to construct legal protections for LGBT victims of intimate partner violence, especially in the case of minor children where legal custody status may not be clear.

Researcher and author Molly M. Herrmann, MS, will discuss tips for lawyers working with LGBT clients in domestic violence cases, and the unique challenges they face.
