U Visas: Advanced & Emerging Issues
Wednesday, May 5th – Thursday, May 6th
12-5 pm est
ASISTA is excited to announce our two-day training on U Visas: Advanced & Emerging Issues is open for registration! Since we aren’t able to meet in person this year, before the FBA & AILA conferences, we are providing our most sought out training virtually like we did last year. Full speaker and agenda details now available!
Speakers include: ASISTA’s national experts, representatives from USCIS, and other national and local experts.
In this interactive two-day training on U Visas, we will cover advanced and emerging issues related to U nonimmigrants, including those with complicated waiver or adjustment issues. We will hear from USCIS representatives on best practices and emerging issues regarding U visa policy. We will also address federal litigation options and strategies for creating survivor-friendly policies at the local level.
This course will be taught at an advanced level, assuming prior knowledge of the requirements for U nonimmigrant status and adjustment of status, and is intended for those who already have experience working on U visa cases.
