Immigration for the Extraordinary: EB-1 Practice and Challenges-Downloadable
Immigration for the Extraordinary: EB-1 Practice and ChallengesThis 90 minute web seminar was recorded live on April 29, 2014, from 2:00 pm-3:30 pm eastern time.
Our immigration laws create certain provisions that lead to permanent residence for scientists and other professionals of extraordinary ability whose outstanding achievements in their fields serve the national interest. These provisions enable a foreign national to self-petition, and to avoid the EB-2 immigrant visa backlog for natives of oversubscribed countries. But with these benefits comes the daunting challenge of addressing the discretion exercised by USCIS adjudicators as they determine which cases actually serve the national interest. Among the topics to be covered are:
- Strategic Considerations in Client Intake
- Current Status of the Kazarian Merits Determination
- Addressing USCIS Discretion
- Mobilizing Outside Referees and Informational Sources for Your Client
- Working with the Foreign National's Mentor to Create an Effective Partnership
- Defining What Is Nationally Important
