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.
