Join us for this four webinar series examining the different steps in the family-based immigration process through the lens of the corresponding application forms and instructions.


Webinar 1: Starting the Process: Spotlight on the I-130 and I-130A

When: Wednesday, April 25, 2:00 p.m. Eastern

The twelve-page I-130 is the application form that launches family-based immigration by establishing the qualifying status of the petitioner and his or her relationship to the beneficiary. What are the issues to watch out for as you prepare the I-130 and, where necessary, the I-130A? What required information may expose the beneficiary to risk of enforcement? What strategies can you pursue when you don’t have primary evidence of the relationship between the petitioner and the beneficiary? And are there any risks for the petitioner when filing an I-130? Join CLINIC attorneys Kristina Karpinski and Susan Schreiber as we discuss step one of family-based immigration by reviewing the I-130 and I-130A forms and instructions.


Webinar 2: Adjustment of Status: Spotlight on the I-485 and I-485A

When: Wednesday, May 2, 2:00 p.m. Eastern

When USCIS revised the I-485 adjustment application last year, advocates expressed concern about the many new questions included in this now 18-page form. What are these changes to the revised I-485 and I-485A forms and what is the impact of these changes? What are the issues to watch out for as you counsel your clients about completing the forms? To learn more about these forms and instructions, join CLINIC attorneys Kristina Karpinski and Susan Schreiber as they offer practical advice and information about applying for adjustment of status.


Webinar 3: Consular Processing: Spotlight on the DS 260 and I-824

When: Wednesday, May 9, 2:00 p.m. Eastern

The DS-260 application for an immigrant visa and the I-824 application for action on an approved petition are two key forms used in the process of seeking an immigrant visa through consular processing. When do you complete each form and what are key practice points to keep in mind when you prepare and submit them? What do you do if you need to make changes to an already submitted DS-260? How do you deal with the practical challenges of completing applications on behalf of a client living abroad? Join CLINIC attorneys Kristina Karpinski and Charles Wheeler as they review best practices in DS-260 and I-824 submission.


Webinar 4: Conditional Residency: Spotlight on the I-751

When: Wednesday, May 16, 2:00 p.m. Eastern

The I-751 Petition to Remove Conditions on Residence must be filed by all conditional residents who want to preserve their LPR status. Although the form provides options for different categories of 751 petition eligibility, not all scenarios are represented, and there are significant gaps in information in the instructions. In this webinar focused on the I-751, CLINIC attorneys Susan Schreiber and Charles Wheeler will review the content of the I-751 and instructions, including the guidance that is lacking, and provide practice tips for how to complete the I-751 based on the circumstances of your client’s case.
