Wednesday, January 30, 2013 - 10:00am

This program on the new Provisional Waiver regulation which will include a discussion about preparing a waiver case for submission to the USCIS. The Provisional Waiver regulation has generated some confusion with regard to who is eligible to take advantage of this program. Below are some of the key eligibility factors:

· The foreign national beneficiary is physically present in the United States;

· The foreign national beneficiary is at least 17 years of age at the time of filing of the Provisional Waiver; and

· The foreign national is the beneficiary of an approved Immigrant Visa (IV) petition classifying you as the immediate relative of a U.S. citizen

These factors and several others will be discussed in this presentation. I will also cover issues regarding the eligibility for those with criminal convictions, medical grounds of inadmissibility, whether those previously or currently in removal proceedings are eligible for this program, and what to do if your client already had an IV interview scheduled but did not attend.
