Third-party placement for all nonimmigrant visa types often yields more questions than answers from USCIS and DOS. This uncertain environment frequently leaves practitioners no choice but to “choose their own adventures” regarding how best to proceed. Panelists will review the law and memoranda, and—most importantly—share stories of recent experiences.

Featured Topics

  • Matter of Simeio Solutions LLC Four Years Later: What Are the Lasting Effects?
  • Are DOS Emails Really from DOS?
  • Electronic LCA Postings: New Guidance and Impact
  • Evidencing Sufficient Work and Right of Control
  • Obligations for Ls: Individuals and Blankets

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
