  • Foreign Students Not Picked in the H-1B Lottery: Options and Strategies
    Web Seminar on July 9, 2019
    Every year, foreign students work closely with employers to prepare their H-1B petitions, then await the H-1B lottery results. Our panel of experts will discuss options for foreign students who are not chosen in the H-1B lottery, as well as strategies on how to stay in status while waiting for the results. They also will delve into the January 2019 H-1B Final Rule reversing the selection order and adding the electronic registration requirement, and address how to prepare for advising foreign students for the next H-1B Cap season.

  • Buttoning Up: A Compliance Check-In
    Web Seminar on July 25
    Whether it is a new client or an existing one, there is no time like the present to think about best practices for compliance-from the public access file to those pesky F-1 training plans. Our panelists will review big-picture compliance issues and provide practitioners with practical compliance pointers.
  • The Notorious I-864: No Longer a Shield Against "Public Charge"
    Audio Seminar on July 30, 2019
    Submitting a successful I-864 in order to shield your client from a finding of inadmissibility based upon the public charge ground has never been simple. Should DHS's proposed rules regarding "Inadmissibility on Public Charge Grounds" take effect, this area of immigration law will become even more cumbersome, as USCIS and the consulates will look far beyond the affidavit of support to determine whether an applicant is likely to become a "public charge." Our expert panelists will analyze both the current and proposed public charge rules and explain which public benefits could sabotage your client's application.
