    Sometimes your client doesn't even know they are a U.S. citizen! Our panel of experts will discuss the various ways your client can automatically become a citizen, and include an overview of both acquired and derivative citizenship. Panelists will share tips for determining which requirements your client is subject to, and the practical concerns that arise when applying for a passport or certificate of citizenship.
  • Advanced Ability-to-Pay Issues
    An essential component of filing the I-140 petition is the employer's ability-to-pay the beneficiary's proffered wage. If the employer currently employs and pays the beneficiary, at minimum, the proffered wage, then demonstrating this can be straightforward. However, in many instances this is not the case, which brings up unique challenges in establishing ability-to-pay. Our panel of experts will discuss advanced issues relating to ability-to-pay, and examine what practitioners should consider when preparing an I-140 petition.

They also will provide tips for dealing with challenging requests for evidence and ensuring that clients understand the importance of supplying the correct type of evidence. Finally, panelists will identify strategies for preparing successful blanket applications for employees.
