Learn the advanced levels of immigration form preparation:

We will cover the following:

  • Adjustment of Status under INA 245(i)

INA 245(i) allows certain beneficiaries to adjust status in the United States, regardless of how they entered, if someone filed a family petition or a labor certification prior to April 30, 2001.  Some family members will be able benefit from this section of the INA.

This module covers: In depth analysis of who is a family member, identifying who is protected under INA 245(i), who is a derivative beneficiary under 245(i), eligibility for spouses acquired after the original petition was filed, obtaining the proper supporting documentation, and FOIA’s with the Department of Labor.

  • Adjustment of Status with TPS

In some states the Courts have decided that persons who are in current TPS status are eligible to adjust status so long as they are an immediate relative of a US Citizen.

This module covers: TPS basics, who is eligible to adjust status, what states are included in the TPS adjustment laws, what to do if your client does not live in an area that will allow them to adjust with TPS.

  • Form I-212, Permission to Reenter after Deportation or Removal

People who have existing removal orders, but are otherwise able to get a green card, now have options to apply for reentry in advance of leaving the United States after a deportation order.  If granted, and I-212 will allow them to safely leave the United States to consular process  – usually with an I-601A Waiver – their green card without having to remain in their country of origin for several years.

This module covers: Eligibility for I-212, obtaining removal  orders, demonstrating positive equities, identifying compelling humanitarian reasons for an I-212 application, consular processing after an approved I-212, types of supporting documentation to submit, and writing the supporting memo detailing the case.

  • I-601 Waivers – Waiving other grounds of inadmissibility

There are other reason other than unlawful presence that a person can be inadmissible to the United States and will need a waiver to obtain a green card.

This module covers: Eligibility for I-601, who is a qualifying relative, identifying hardships to qualifying relatives, demonstrating positive equities, types of supporting documentation to submit, differences between an I-601 with an application to adjust status versus consular processing, filing for an I-601 after a denial of a green card at a consular interview.

  • Helping a family member obtain a Visitor Visa for their family members

This module covers: DS-160 (we actually complete one), scheduling the interview, types of supporting documents needed to demonstrate intent to return to country of origin, and applying for humanitarian parole when a person is denied a visitor visa or cannot wait the processing time due to an emergency in the United States.
