Webinar One: Overview of Immigration Consequences of Crimes

Topics:
  • Immigration and Crimes
  • Waiver of Inadmissibility/Deportation/Removal
  • Consequence of Criminal Conviction
  • Immigration Court

*This is the first in a four-part series (11/4, 11/11, 11/18, and 11/25).

Virtually every form of immigration relief a client may seek is impacted in some way by having a criminal record. Beyond the issues of inadmissibility and deportability, a client’s criminal record may fall within a relief-specific bar to eligibility or affect the assessment of good moral character and discretion. This four-week webinar series will guide advocates through the steps to take to analyze a client’s criminal record, recognize the potential effect a record may have on the client’s case and determine how to appropriately counsel a client facing the immigration consequences of a criminal offense.

Topics:

  • The impact of a criminal record on a client's immigration case
  • Convictions, admissions and conduct-based inadmissibility
  • Standards for inadmissibility
  • How to assess your client's case
