On July 5, 2018, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) published new guidance, dated June 28, 2018, regarding the issuance of Notices to Appear (NTAs). The new guidance grants USCIS a mandate to issue an NTA upon denial of an application, petition, or immigration benefit request where the applicant, beneficiary, or requestor is removable (including those who are “not lawfully present”), except in very limited circumstances. Recognizing the significant departure from prior USCIS NTA policy and the potential impact on thousands of individuals, our expert panelists will break down the new guidance, explain who it may affect, and offer strategies for advising and protecting clients.

Featured Topics

  • The New USCIS NTA Memorandum: What It Says and How It Compares to Prior NTA Policy
  • How Might Family-Based Immigrants Be Impacted?
  • How Might Naturalization Applicants Be Impacted?
  • Strategies for Protecting Clients from NTA Issuance
  • Strategies for Avoiding a Removal Order and/or Unlawful Presence Bar
  • Tips for Advising Clients
Due to the late-breaking nature of the program and jurisdictional requirements, CLE credit is not available for this seminar.
