This webinar will focus specifically on the process for U nonimmigrants to adjust status and petition for qualifying family members. Incorporating the latest and most accurate information, we will cover the requirements, policies and procedures for adjusting status and dealing with discretionary issues, fee waivers, adjustment processing and family petitioning, possible pitfalls, and practice pointers on what to expect and how to best strategize for winning U adjustment cases.

We will discuss the complex issues that come up in complicated U Visa cases, including how to deal with marriage fraud; what kinds of crimes might trigger a denial, revocation or deportability; how to deal with inadmissibility issues including crimes at the border, at adjustment for U nonimmigrants or at adjustment or consular processing for family members granted an I-929 approval; and more.
