4.5 (4 votes)

The panelists on this intermediate session will discuss new and creative ways to seek relief from removal in immigration court. They also will identify forms of relief not often used but still available, such as NACARA, suspension of deportation, HRIFA, CAA, registry, INA §212(c), INA §237(a)(1)(H), adjustment and readjustment, and other waivers. Finally, panelists will provide guidance on combating multiple grounds of removability and combining forms of relief to achieve victory.
