This two-day training will provide an in-depth analysis of the new provisional waiver adjudication for unlawful presence, including practical information on developing and submitting a successful waiver application.  The training will cover the eligibility requirements for the provisional waiver, the waiver filing procedures, a discussion of extreme hardship, and gathering the documentation for the case.  Participants will also learn how to develop a theory for the case, prepare declarations, put the case together, and dealing with post-adjudication issues.  In addition, the training will include a presentation on unlawful presence and other grounds of inadmissibility.  The trainers for this program include CLINIC attorneys Debbie Smith and Charles Wheeler, Richard Gorman of the UFW Foundation and other invited guest speakers.
