TN Status Holders: Avoiding Preconceived Intent and Applying for LPR Status - Recording (.MP3)
2:00 PM (ET)
TN professionals must maintain bona fide nonimmigrant intent. Under the United States–Mexico–Canada Agreement (formerly NAFTA) regulations, a TN applicant cannot intend to establish permanent residence in the United States and must satisfy the inspecting officer that the proposed stay is temporary and has a finite end. How, then, is a TN status holder able to apply for adjustment of status (AOS)? Or can they? Our panel of experts will discuss the pros and cons for TN status holders who seek to apply for AOS, and how to avoid a finding of fraud or "pre-conceived" intent.
