In this seminar, we will discuss the four major grounds of inadmissibility that are likely to require a waiver: Crimes, especially Crimes of Moral Turpitude, Misrepresentation, Smuggling and Unlawful Presence. We also provide materials on most of the other inadmissibility grounds, including CIS memos that describe how the agency interprets these grounds.
More importantly, however, we will teach you how to prepare a winning case for hardship, how to use the case law to make effective arguments for establishing extreme hardship, and how to work with clients to elicit the information necessary to substantiate their hardship claims.
