 April 29, 2013

When Is a Kid a Kid (under the INA)?

2:00 p.m. - 3:30 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time
11:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time
Cost: $50; $25 for CLINIC Affiliates paying annual dues  

How old do you have to be to sign an affidavit of support or be counted as a household member? To qualify as a stepchild?  To derive citizenship when your parent naturalizes? Of the seven ways to be a child under INA § 101(b), which ones satisfy that definition under 101(c)? What does it mean for a child to be "legitimated?"  And what are the various options for immigrating as an adopted child?  In this webinar, CLINIC attorneys Susan Schreiber and Charles Wheeler will review all the requirements of being a "child" under the Immigration and Nationality Act, as well as the various ways that age becomes a factor in immigration law benefits and responsibilities.
