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.
