“B-2 or Not B-2: That Is the Question for Your Client's Betrothed!” - Recording (.MP3)
Your client has fallen in love and is betrothed to a noncitizen who wants to live in the United States permanently. But what if your client does not want to wait out the long K-1 and IR-1 application processing times? Is the B-2 an alternative? Our panel of experts will address whether the B-2 is a viable option in light of DOS’s “90-day rule,” and advise on how that decision could impact your client’s betrothed after entry into the United States.
