This option allows you to register for the two Family webinars at a discounted price.
The two webinars are:
Family-Based Immigration: The Family Visa Petition (1.5 CA MCLE)
November 2, 2012, 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm PDT
Presenters: Lourdes Martinez, ILRC Staff Attorney and Erin Quinn, ILRC Staff Attorney
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 what 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 of the petitioner. The discussion will include an overview of the Child Status Protection Act and the rules applying to widows and other beneficiaries when the qualifying relative dies. 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. The webinar will conclude with a brief introduction to the second step in the family immigration process – the adjustment of status under INA 245(a).
Grandfathering Under 245(i) (1.5 CA MCLE)
November 7, 2012, 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm PDT
Presenters: Erin Quinn, ILRC Staff Attorney
245(i) might be a law of the past, but many of your clients may still benefit from this provision. During this webinar, we will discuss who may still benefit from 245(i) with an emphasis on who is “grandfathered” in. We will cover the various family relationships that result in 245(i) protection, with reference to USCIS policy, legal updates, and hypothetical examples.
