The Trump administration has rescinded most past policy guidance that conflicts with its current enforcement priorities. As a result, the USCIS NTA memorandum of November 7, 2011, may no longer be in effect and is most certainly under review. Thus, exposing petitioners and beneficiaries to USCIS can lead to the initiation of removal proceedings or removal under certain circumstances. Therefore, a thorough review of your client’s background and immigration history is more crucial than ever before filing an I-130 petition. Join our panelists for a lively discussion on how to avoid common problems associated with marriage-based I-130 petitions, and increase the chances of approval.


  • Issuance of NTAs: Overview of the November 7, 2011 USCIS Memorandum, and How USCIS Is Currently Using Its Discretion

  • How to Avoid a Denial and/or Finding of Fraud
