Preparing for State-Side Pre-Adjudication of Waivers
Join us for a this Affiliates Only Webinar on January 12
12:00 PM - 1:30 PM EST
Space is limited.
The USCIS is planning to issue proposed rulemaking that would change the adjudication of unlawful presence waivers on behalf of immediate relatives. The agency has published a Notice, issued various materials, and will soon hold a Stakeholders meeting explaining this proposal in greater detail. CLINIC is offering affiliates a webinar where we will summarize the proposed change, provide updated information and analysis, and project how this change will impact your caseload. For example, we anticipate that many LPRs will want to naturalize so their family members can qualify for the proposed change. U.S. citizens may want to file I-130 petitions for their spouses and children before the proposed rule takes effect to avoid a backlog in I-130 processing. And clients who would benefit from this proposed change and who are scheduled to leave for consular processing before it goes into effect may want to postpone that immigrant visa interview. The webinar will offer suggestions on community education and how to prepare for the proposed changes. Please join us so that you can contribute to this dialogue and we may all benefit from your ideas.
After registering you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the Webinar.
