This advanced webinar will focus on significant aspects of the law that tend to be overlooked: the loss of American citizenship and its potentially painful consequences, not only for the naturalized citizen who got it unlawfully or others who abandon it voluntarily, but also for relatives who might have acquired or could acquire an immigration benefit through them. We will examine the grounds for and procedures related to denaturalization and the acts under INA §349 that may be construed as a voluntary abandonment.
