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, waiver filing procedures, extreme hardship and how to prove it, and assessment of inadmissibility with a focus on unlawful presence. Participants will learn how to develop a theory for the case, marshal the facts, and obtain necessary supporting documentation. The training will also address how your program can develop a plan to increase naturalization by LPR clients to allow their immediate family members to qualify for provisional waiver processing. Day two of the training includes a presentation on provisional waiver adjudication by USCIS officers from the National Benefits Center.
The trainers for this program are CLINIC attorneys Susan Schreiber and Charles Wheeler, and Veronica Garza of Catholic Charities Forth Worth. An application for Missouri CLE credit is pending.
