When your client has both a removal order and unlawful presence, you will need to file both an I-212 and an I-601A before the client can consular process. The faculty on this intermediate panel will discuss analyzing the big picture and deciding when this “bundle” is the best option for your client. The panel will also feature more complex issues surrounding I-212/I-601As, such as the bar for failing to appear, what evidence works best, and when this waiver duo is not the best option.

Featured Topics:

  • Strategic and Practical Considerations: When to File, When to Defer, and Motions to Reopen vs. I-212/I-601A
  • Considering the Bar for Failure to Appear After an In Absentia Order
  • How Does Travel on Advance Parole Fit into the Equation?
  • Procedure and Timeline of How to File
  • Weaving the Hardship Narrative Without Witnesses
  • Must You Have a Psychological Evaluation?
