Petition Termination, Revocation and Reinstatement
A lot can happen between the client’s filing a petition and becoming a lawful permanent resident. For example, the petition might be revoked based on death, marriage, divorce or the petitioner’s losing LPR status. Or, the petition might be terminated because the beneficiary fails to take timely action to immigrate once the priority date is current. This workshop will review the various bases for petition revocation and available relief for certain surviving relatives when the petitioner or principal beneficiary dies. It will also cover petition termination based on INA § 203(g) and when and how termination may be overcome.
