Forms & Fundamentals is the "formsbook" for new immigration practitioners who desire a step-by-step guide to completing some of the most common immigration forms. Immigration forms aren't always as straightforward as they seem, so Forms & Fundamentals offers practice pointers and checklists, along with the sample forms, so the reader can gain a better understanding of what needs to be considered when completing each form.

"Forms & Fundamentals focuses on the key forms required in the everyday practice of a general immigration law office. The book is intended to serve as a daily reference tool for all practitioners who seek assistance and expertise in both the general context of operating a successful immigration practice, as well as in filling out these most important forms."

Irene Scharf
