Immigration Law & the Family has been the go-to reference immigration practitioners have relied on for years. It provides practical, step-by-step guidance on the fundamentals of family-sponsored immigration for family immigration practitioners as well as business immigration practitioners who come across these issues occasionally.

The new third edition includes the latest guidance on:

  • The provisional waiver for unlawful presence
  • The Child Status Protection Act
  • Relief for family members after death of the petitioner
  • Filing for adjustment of status and consular processing
  • Grounds of inadmissibility and the waiver process

and more!

"The impetus for this book was to address the complexities of family-based immigration in a straightforward and step-by-step approach-to boil them down to their fundamentals and offer practical advice for those representing clients in this process."
—Editor, Charles Wheeler
