  • New Unlawful Presence Memo: Impact on Students and Exchange Visitors
    Late-Breaking Seminar Recording
    Special Recording Price for Members: $99

    On May 10, 2018, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) published new guidance that changes 20 years of agency policy regarding the accrual of unlawful presence for students (F-1), exchange visitors (J-1), and their dependent family members. Rather than deeming unlawful presence to start accruing the day an application or petition for immigration benefits is denied, the new guidance states that unlawful presence will accrue retroactive to the date USCIS determines a status violation took place. This change, coupled with the new USCIS Notice to Appear policy, and the new guidance expanding USCIS authority to deny immigration benefits requests without first issuing a request for evidence, could have devastating consequences for nonimmigrant students and exchange visitors. Join our expert panelists as they break down the new unlawful presence policy and offer strategies for advising and protecting clients in this unprecedented environment.

  • How to File Winning Appeals with the BIA and AAO

How do you prepare a winning appellate brief? Our panel of experts will unlock the mysteries of when and where to file appeals, what to file, procedures for appeals, and how to prepare winning briefs, motions, and evidence for appeals.
  • New NTA Memo Part 2-Family-Based Clients and Naturalization Applicants
    Late-Breaking Seminar Recording
    Special Recording Price for Members: $49

    On July 5, 2018, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) published new guidance, dated June 28, 2018, regarding the issuance of Notices to Appear (NTAs). The new guidance grants USCIS a mandate to issue an NTA upon denial of an application, petition, or immigration benefit request where the applicant, beneficiary, or requestor is removable (including those who are "not lawfully present"), except in very limited circumstances. Recognizing the significant departure from prior USCIS NTA policy and the potential impact on thousands of individuals, our expert panelists will break down the new guidance, explain who it may affect, and offer strategies for advising and protecting clients.
