Family Visa Petitions Webinar

From the Immigrant Legal Resource Center:

This webinar is intended for legal service providers who are new to the area of family-based immigration and will focus on the basics of the family visa petition.  We will cover which relatives can qualify for family-based immigration and how they fit, and move around the preference categories with events such as marriage, divorce or the naturalization of the petitioner. The discussion will include an overview of the Child Status Protection Act and the rules applying to widows and other beneficiaries when the qualifying relative dies. We will also review how priority dates are established, lost and recaptured, as well as the role of the visa bulletin and what happens when the visa availability date advances or regresses.  The webinar will conclude with a brief introduction to the second step in the family immigration process, the adjustment of status under INA 245(a).
