Advanced Issues in Family-Based Immigration

  • Immigration

This training supplements the training "Family-Based Immigration Law." This training will provide a basic overview of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) and federal regulation requirements for nonimmigrant visas for fiances, spouses, and children of U.S. citizens. This training will also cover potential avenues to legal immigration status through family-based immigration even though the family relationship that might have formed the basis for immigration has broken down, such as the basic eligibility requirements for self-petitioning under the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA), widow/widower self-petitions, and humanitarian reinstatement. The training will also cover the basic eligibility requirements for removing the "conditions" on conditional residents. Because many of these topics are covered more in depth in separate trainings, this training covers only basic statutory and regulatory eligibility requirements. It is recommended that attendees first take "Family-Based Immigration Law" before taking this training. The training will be conducted by Jeffrey A. Feinbloom of Feinbloom Bertisch LLP.
