During this seminar, U visa experts and seasoned practitioners will share their experience and lead a discussion on eligibility and application procedures for U nonimmigrants, including tips and best practices for documenting a case, proving substantial harm, addressing inadmissibility issues including crimes, responding to RFEs, including derivative family members, extending status, and obtaining law enforcement certification. Although we will provide an overview of the basic requirements, much of our time will be spent going in to the complexities of eligibility and the application procedure. We will also be joined by Los Angeles law enforcement agencies to discuss strategies and requirements for obtaining certification for clients.
