This webinar is intended for legal service providers who are new to the area of family-based immigration and will focus on the basics of the family visa petition. We will cover which relatives can qualify for family-based immigration and how they fit and move around the preference categories with events such as marriage, divorce or the naturalization petitioner. We will also review how priority dates are established, lost and recaptured, as well as the role of the visa bulletin and what happens when the visa availability date advances or regresses. We will review the various ways in which a family visa petition may get revoked and we will review the rules applying to widows and other beneficiaries when the qualifying relative dies.  The discussion will include an overview of the Child Status Protection Act.

In this webinar we will focus on the most common crimes-based grounds of inadmissibility: crimes involving moral turpitude, controlled substance offenses and conduct, and prostitution.  In the last year we have gained some tremendous new defenses against a finding of inadmissibility. This webinar will describe when inadmissibility matters, the definition of each of the three grounds, and how to argue that your client is not inadmissible. This is an intermediate-level webinar; we will begin with the basics for each topic, and will also discuss advanced issues.

Your client is inadmissible for crimes. Now what do you do?  In many cases, you can at least apply to waive the offense under INA §212(h). This webinar will cover what can be waived under § 212(h), who can apply for a waiver, when it can be filed, the standards for granting it, and when different rules apply to some permanent residents. We will discuss how § 212(h) can be used to prevent disaster when the client cannot apply for LPR or non-LPR cancellation, as well as the limits the BIA is placing on use of the waiver. This is an intermediate-level webinar that assumes some familiarity with inadmissibility for crimes and waivers in general.
