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

    • 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?
Due to the late-breaking nature of the program and jurisdictional requirements, CLE credit is not available for this seminar.
