Are you encountering problems with local office VAWA adjustments?  Do you have self-petitioners eligible to adjust within the next year?  Join Executive Director, Gail Pendleton and Senior Legal Counsel, Laura Flores Bachman  for an interactive discussion on emerging inadmissibility and other challenges facing VAWA adjustment applicants. This CLE will identify and suggest strategies for handling the latest problems with VAWA adjustments at local offices, including best practices for representing VAWA self-petitioners with inadmissibility issues, overcoming reinstatement, avoiding procedural irregularities,  and working with USCIS local field offices.
