Last week, CLINIC sent all affiliates a notice informing them of the July 17th deadline for returning three-year EADs requested by USCIS in order to comply with the Texas court’s February 16, 2015 injunction. USCIS reports that there are still approximately 900 DACA recipients who have not yet returned their three-year EADs.

We have now been informed that USCIS will take further steps if they do not receive these EADs. These actions may include:

What do I do when the only BIA representative on staff decides to leave our program without anyone else authorized to practice and continue representing the existing caseload? What’s involved in hiring our nonprofit’s first attorney on staff? What needs to be done if the new Program Director doesn’t know immigration law? What can be done proactively or reactively if we lose our one big grant?

Join us for this webinar as we learn the nuts and bolts of staffing your program along with tricks and tips to effectively train and keep high-quality teachers.

On May 26th the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals denied the government’s emergency request to “stay” the current injunction placing DAPA and expanded DACA on hold.

Almost all family-based and some employment-based petitioners must file the Form I-864 Affidavit of Support to show the intending immigrant is not likely to become a public charge.

The Catholic Legal Immigration Network, Inc. (CLINIC) is a national network of non-profits that provide legal services to immigrants. CLINIC invites you to join this FREE webinar on President Obama’s executive actions on immigration, in particular Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and Deferred Action for the Parents of U.S. Citizens and Lawful Permanent Residents (DAPA).

While attention has been focused on the I-601 waiver to remedy most grounds of inadmissibility, little has been said about the Form I-212. In this webinar we will cover the ground of inadmissibility for prior deportations and removal, including expedited removal, and the waiver for that ground of inadmissibility.

Did you know that public libraries in your community can help with your program’s naturalization efforts? Join us for a free webinar to learn how libraries are prepared to support the immigrant community.

Please join us for a free webinar on Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). We'll discuss President Obama's recent executive action expanding DACA.

Good moral character is a requirement for naturalization applicants. Paying taxes is one way to establish good moral character, and immigration legal service programs and their agencies can easily assist their clients with this important task.

Is evaluation a component of your program?  This webinar offers various recommendations on what to evaluate and how.  CLINIC will feature how DACA services, past and present, are important lessons learned when planning to implement even larger-scale services. 

How do I document compensation when the beneficiary is a member of a religious order and has taken a vow of poverty? Does time spent outside the U.S. count toward the 5 year limitation for R-1 status? What do I do when CBP admits my R-1 client for a shorter or longer period than the time granted by USCIS on the I-129 approval? What is the USCIS Fraud Unit looking for during a site visit? Does work outside the U.S. count towards the two years of continuous qualifying work immediately before filing the I-360 petition?

Do you serve a large region with one office and wish to expand using sub offices or other spaces? Are you planning to expand your service delivery models to other locations once President Obama announces administrative relief before the end of the year? Perhaps you’ve considered expanding to an additional location but aren’t quite sure where to start.

Eligibility for adjustment of status should be straightforward, but we all know that is not always the case. With expanding definitions of "admission," new opportunities for advance parole, greater eligibility for "surviving relatives," and derivative family members who may qualify for 245(i) without establishing physical presence, you may encounter complicated legal and procedural issues in proving that your client qualifies to adjust.

We regret to inform you that registration for the webinar,  Immigration Legal Services for Survivors of Domestic Violence and Other Crimes, is not available.  The announcement for this webinar was sent in error.  We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. 

As an immigration advocate, you know the road to case approval can be long and bumpy: RFEs for documents already submitted or irrelevant, erroneous case denials, long-delayed case adjudications, immigration visa denials based on improper legal standards - the list of problems goes on and on. What remedies exist to address these problems and how can CLINIC help you in the process? When and how should you contact the CIS Ombudsman Office or inquire about a legal issue with the Department of State through Legalnet?
