The inspection process can be an anxious experience for a lawful permanent resident (LPR) reentering the United States. In a short period of time, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) can turn the perceived security of LPR status upside down. Our panel of experts will discuss ways to proactively protect and, if necessary, defend an employee-client’s LPR status in cases involving extensive foreign travel, arrests, or changes in employment that occur before and after the grant of lawful permanent residence.

Featured Topics

  • Proactive Strategies for Preserving LPR Status for Global Travelers and Employees Temporarily Assigned Abroad
  • Preparing a Client for CBP Secondary Inspection or Deferred Inspection Interviews
  • Reentry into the United States Following a Change in Employment Soon After Obtaining LPR Status
  • Reentry into the United States After a DUI or Other “Minor” Infraction
  • What to Do When CBP Threatens to “Pull” a Client’s Permanent Resident Card at the Airport or Land Border
