Family lawyers must be familiar with how immigration issues affect their client’s family law matter. This program will help family lawyers spot issues that can arise with foreign national clients during divorce proceedings, and other family-related scenarios, and educate them on when they should enlist an immigration attorney’s help.

Topics include:

  • I-864 Affidavit of Support, and what it requires of the United States citizen spouse

  • I-751s and Conditional permanent residency: when it starts, when it ends and when the petition for permanent residency should be filed, and what happens if a divorce is finalized before permanent residency is obtained

  • Nonimmigrant work visa issues (L-1, L-2, H-1, H-4) and consequences of divorce on a dependent spouse

  • Domestic Violence when one or both parties are foreign nationals, and what the potential immigration options and consequences are
