Session 1: Forms, Forms, Forms: In most instances, USCIS decides an immigrant survivor’s request for immigration status based only on what is submitted in writing. This means you have no opportunity to engage the adjudicator in conversations about the nuances of your client’s eligibility, history, or character. As a result, meticulous preparation and accuracy are paramount when preparing your client’s request for immigration status. In this interactive session, participants will learn best practices and common pitfalls when preparing USCIS forms. We will cover the best uses for client intake forms, your filing checklists, and USCIS initial evidence lists.
Speakers: Laura Flores Bachman & Cecelia Levin Friedman, ASISTA Immigration Assistance.
