Here, Mr. Reich will discuss situations where family law and immigration law interplay and certain issues that may influence how a family lawyer would advise a client, including both a US citizen spouse and a foreign national spouse. Mr. Reich also presents timing issues concerning both family law proceedings and immigration status, discussing how these issues should affect the advice given by the attorney.

II. Spot post-marriage considerations
III. Comprehend how to handle the immigration case and process
IV. Grasp the financial ramifications of the Affidavit of Support and the longevity of financial support responsibility

VI. Approach separation and divorce issues through the lens of a foreign national spouse’s immigration status

new to immigration law was very helpful
Presenter was very knowledgeable in technical, complex subject area.
Couldn't be more "knowledgeable" . . . very well presented
Very technical and if you find yourself in this area or with this situation, you need a good immigration attorney to help you who also has family law experience.
This was an excellent course. The instructor has very good insights into key practical matters.

Cannot find a better speaker. He is great!
an effective program.
He did a great job outlining obstacles (namely petition to support). But he also provided practical solutions. He knows his subject area (would like to hear on employment and immigration).
good practical explanation of otherwise confusing subject matter.
Very clearly explained!

Useful info for general practitioners as well as family law attorneys, who don't usually know much about immigration and otherwise might not refer client to specialist in time to meet various immigration deadlines
