The Special Immigrant Juvenile (SIJ) application is an excellent and relatively fast affirmative or defensive alternative for qualified juvenile immigrants. However, several roadblocks have recently arisen, including: retrogression of the EB-4 visa category for Salvadoran, Guatemalan, and Honduran juveniles; the increasingly overwhelmed family courts; and USCIS giving stricter scrutiny of the SIJ family court order. Our panelists will discuss how to help your SIJ client in this increasingly challenging environment.


  • EB-4 Retrogression: How Does It Affect Juveniles in Removal Proceedings?
  • How to Deal with Retrogression for SIJ Applications Before EOIR
  • Common Issues in State Courts: Strategies and Best Practices
  • Ensuring Your Client’s Family Court Order Will Withstand USCIS Scrutiny
