Family-based immigration remains a primary path to permanent residence and is even more critical in the changing legal environment. This webinar will explore different adjustment strategies for family-based immigration, including traditional 245(a) adjustment and 245(i) eligibility and grandfathering. It will also explore more recent developments for establishing adjustment eligibility for those with a parole entry and for TPS holders. In addition to reviewing the various pathways to adjustment eligibility, it will highlight red flags as well as provide practical strategies for advocates.
