Immigration Law & the Family has been the go-to reference immigration practitioners have relied on for years. It provides guidance on the fundamentals of family-sponsored immigration with the latest guidance on consular processing—including fees, procedures, and electronic processing—and updates on conditional residency, fiance(e)s, and widow petitions.

Family immigration has seen significant changes over the last few years. Now in its second edition, Immigration Law & the Family has been completely updated to address the following:

  • Relief for surviving family members
  • Interpretations and agency guidance on grounds of inadmissibility
  • Tips on filing waivers for applicants found inadmissible
  • Affidavits of support
  • Self-petitioning for abused family members
  • Ethical considerations
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.”
