Kona client receives Special Immigrant Juvenile Status and gets case dismissed!

Congratulations to another young client in Kona on receiving Special Immigrant Juvenile Status (SIJS) and getting her Immigration Court case dismissed!

Thank you to Ivette Olivares ’24, who was instrumental in taking care of this client. Mahalo nui to Jacky Mena, a Kona-based family law practitioner, and the attorneys at Children’s Law Project Hawai’i for assisting with the family court piece of the SIJS process. We are very grateful for all of our community partners in representing immigrant children!
