While the primary focus of attorneys may be on the beneficiary of a nonimmigrant visa petition, it is important to remember that moving to another county with dependent family members can be fraught with confusion and uncertainty. The faculty on this beginner to intermediate panel will address some of the most common issues our clients and their dependents face when contemplating moving to the United States, ranging from applying for a visa to the ability to work.

Featured Topics

  • Requirements for Dependent Visa Applications
  • Married vs. Cohabiting Partner: Differences in Visa Options and COVID-Related Issues
  • Working with LGBT+ Partners/Spouses and Understanding Potential Difficulties
  • Work Authorization in the United States: Which Visas Allow It, Requirements on Arrival
  • Driver’s Licenses and Attending School for Adults and Children in Dependent Status
  • Extensions of Dependent Status, Dealing with Overstays, and Potential Unauthorized Employment
