1h 31m

Created on March 18, 2019




It is important for all practitioners of immigration law to be familiar with grounds of inadmissibility and deportability because they may apply in any type of case where a foreign national seeks to apply for a visa at a U.S. Consulate abroad, petition, for a nonimmigrant or immigrant classification within the United States, or for admission to the United States at a port of entry.

This program, presented by experienced immigration practitioner Lindsay Curcio, will study Sections 212 and 237 of the Immigration and Nationality Act and discuss issues which may prevent a foreign national from entering or remaining in the United States. Grounds will include health, criminal offenses, immigration violations, and misrepresentation and fraud. Statutory exceptions and waivers to grounds of inadmissibility and deportability will also be covered.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Examine requirements and strategies for waiver applications including waivers available for immigrants and nonimmigrants, qualifying relatives (I-601), and standards of hardship (I-601, I-601A)
  2. Identify tips to prepare waiver applications
  3. Explore trends in waiver adjudications including 601A waivers, revocations of waivers, and waivers in removal proceedings
