Beginning August 25, 2017, USCIS will only accept the latest version of Form I-485, Application for Adjustment of Status (6/26/17 edition). At 18 pages, this new form is significantly different from the six-page form practitioners have known and used for years. Join AILA’s panel of experts as they break down the new Form I-485 and offer tactics and strategies for solving some of the thornier problems regarding admissibility.

Featured Topics

  • Overview of Form Changes, Expansion of Eligibility and Admissibility Questions
    • Criminal Acts and Violations: “Controlled Substances” and Other Issues
    • Illegal Entries and Other Immigration Violations: What About Materiality?
    • Issues that Go Beyond the Scope of the Grounds of Inadmissibility
  • Documentary Requirements
  • Should Fee Structures and/or Office Procedures Be Changed Given the Length and Complexity of the New Form?

Free Downloadable Seminar Recording Included with Live Registration Included with registration, participants in the live seminar will receive a free downloadable recording of the seminar. It will be available in participant's Agora Digital Library approximately 4-7 business days from the seminar date. Order Recordings
