Course Description

Length: 1h 0min    Published: 11/20/2018    
Conviction of a crime - and especially a sex crime - can be a significant hurdle for someone seeking to have a spouse immigrate to the United States on a family-based petition. Criminal mitigation, which humanizes the petitioner and puts past crimes in context for the adjudicator, is essential for such a person in order to succeed with their petition. In this program, attorney and author Mark Silver will discuss strategies immigration counsel can use to disabuse adjudicators of implicit bias and the factors that they use in determining whether to grant the petition.
Learning Objectives
* Learn about the effects criminal convictions can have on family-based immigration petitions
* Explore strategies immigration attorneys use to mitigate crimes for a family-based petition
* Explore how implicit bias can affect the outcome of family-based petitions
