The provisional stateside waiver process took effect in March of 2013. Thus far, there exists a pronounced degree of divergence from established unlawful presence waiver practice. Various efforts have been made to address troublesome trends in the adjudication of these applications as well as to foster a more consistent process akin to I-601 adjudications. These efforts have assisted in the continued evolution of the process and include USCIS' interpretation of the “reason to believe” standard, determinations of extreme hardship, the use of requests for evidence (RFEs), and processing within the context of removal proceedings. This seminar focuses on the updates and trends identified in these evolving areas so that stakeholders know what to expect.

Key Topics Include:

  • Overview, Proper Screening, and Important Preliminary Steps
  • Reason to Believe: Considerations Involving the Reason to Believe Standard and Its Present Utilization by USCIS, Including Criminal Backgrounds, Fraud/Misrepresentations Grounds, and Unlawful Presence
  • Boilerplate RFEs: How to Respond and What to Expect
  • Processing Times: What Is the Goal and Informing Your Client of the Timeframe from the Beginning of the Case
  • Importance of Addressing the Exercise of Discretion
