Live Event Date: 7/21/2022
Format Length CLE Eligible
Web Seminar 90 min. Yes

Business immigration practitioners often see different kinds of criminal conduct than other types of immigration attorneys. How do practitioners spot criminal problems specific to employment-based cases? Some criminal offenses, when committed by a foreign national present in the United States, may render that person subject to removal from the country. Other criminal offenses may preclude a foreign national outside the United States from being either admitted into the country or permitted to reenter following an initial departure. Panelists on this seminar for business immigration beginners will discuss how criminal conduct can affect a foreign national’s case.

Featured Topics:

  • The Most Common Crimes That Affect Business Immigration Cases
  • How to Discuss Revealed Criminal Conduct with Employees and Employers in the Context of Dual Representation
  • When an Expungement or Change in Disposition Is Effective
  • Impact of Criminal Activity on the Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA), Visas, Nonimmigrant Status, and Green Cards
