Handling Backlogs and Cases “Stuck” at the Consulates
July 22, 2021
2:00 PM (ET)
COVID-19 has turned consular processing upside down. More than 500,000 applications are ready for an interview, but the consulates are providing minimal information about what you can do to move the case forward. In this intermediate to advanced seminar, our faculty of consular processing experts will discuss tips on how to move your cases forward and ensure smooth adjudication processes for your client.
- What Cases Are Being Prioritized? How to Submit a Request to Expedite
- Emergency Visa Appointment Requests: Main Criteria for Getting the Appointment
- Keeping Information Up-to-Date: How to Make Sure the Client’s Financial Information, Medical Exams, and Police Certificates Do Not Expire While the Case Is Delayed
- When All Else Fails: Filing a Mandamus Action to Get the Case “Un-Stuck”
- Motions to Dismiss and for Summary Judgment in Mandamus Litigation
