Family-Based Immigration Basics

Friday, June 3, 2016 12:30 PM to 2:00 PM
Boston Bar Association - 16 Beacon Street, Boston, MA


This program is aimed at new practitioners, lawyers who are new to immigration law, and immigration attorneys a few years into their practices who would like to brush up on the fundamentals of family-based immigration law. Our panel of experts will provide a brief overview of the different government organizations involved in family-based immigration and what they are each responsible for; they will discuss who can petition for whom; they will explain the differences between adjustment of status and consular processing; and they will touch on the hot topic of Special Immigrant Juvenile status.
