Are you up to date with the latest developments affecting eligibility to adjust status? Law and policy decisions in the past few months have created new avenues for adjustment of status and addressed the limits of 245(i) grandfathering for derivatives. For example, the USCIS has issued an important memo providing adjustment eligibility for certain relatives of military service members and veterans (parole in place). It also issued a memo clarifying adjustment eligibility for visa waiver overstays married to US citizens. We are still learning about the effects of advance parole by TPS and DACA grantees as a means to qualify for adjustment. The BIA issued a decision on after-acquired spouses and 245(i) eligibility. And a federal appeals court issued a decision on adjustment of status for K-4 derivatives. Join CLINIC attorneys Susan Schreiber, Debbie Smith and Charles Wheeler to find out how these developments impact on your clients' eligibility for adjustment of status.
