Waivers of the grounds of inadmissibility are an essential part of immigration practice. This four-part webinar series will present information on both the theory and practice of developing successful waiver applications. Participants will learn the legal standards of extreme hardship, how to create a theory of the case, how to marshal the facts and what kinds of supporting documentation to submit. The presenters will include detailed information on the provisional waiver program and agency guidance on extreme hardship. By the end of the series, participants will be better able to analyze the strengths and weaknesses of specific cases and advise clients on their chances for success.
This webinar will explore the legal standard of "extreme hardship," whose meaning derives from case law and is central to many of the inadmissibility waivers. Presenters will discuss the 2016 USCIS guidance on extreme hardship and how that has changed waiver adjudication. The presenters will also discuss how discretion plays a role in the adjudication of a waiver application.
