Strategic Etiquette with Adjudicators: Point Them Toward the Issues - Recording (.MP3)
In this new era of immigration law, it is unclear whether poor adjudications are the result of sloppiness and budget cuts, anti-immigration policies formulated at the highest levels of the administration (but not committed to writing), or the rewriting of sections of the Foreign Affairs Manual and other governmental guidance. Immigration attorneys are seeing increased requests for evidence asking companies to meet criteria they are not alleging (e.g., demonstrating that the position is managerial when the petition asserts that the individual is executive), and repeated instances of visa applicants being processed under incorrect standards. Our panel of experts will offer practical tips and strategies to help you point adjudicators towards the proper guidance and issues relevant to your case.
