THE BASICS:

What are the most common forms of immigration status? Is there a way to confirm my non-citizen client’s status if they aren’t totally sure? Why don’t my non-citizen clients just get in line and do it the way that my family did? Should we ever see major immigration reform in the U.S. again, and what might that look like?

DOCUMENTATION & EMPLOYMENT:

Who is eligible for employment authorization? How can my client receive it? What about international students? What kinds of employment visas might be realistically available to my non-citizen client? What documents does my non-citizen client need to work legally? To drive? To obtain health insurance and other benefits?

CRIMINAL LAW:

When should a non-citizen criminal defendant consult with an immigration attorney? What are my responsibilities when advising a non-citizen client in plea negotiations? What are my liabilities? What are the potential immigration consequences of different types of convictions? Also, I heard the federal agents treat a CWOF as a conviction!? What's that all about?

IMMIGRATION ENFORCEMENT:

How does ICE enforcement and detention actually work? Is there any way to know if my non-citizen client at risk? What is immigration court? What can an immigration judge do for my client?

REFUGEE & ASYLUM ISSUES:

What is the difference between refugee and asylee status, and how are they achieved?  How does refugee resettlement work? What rights and benefits come with refugee status?

FAMILY LAW:

What is the role of our family courts in the Special Immigrant Juvenile process? What kinds of custody orders qualify? How else might immigration status come up in divorce and custody proceedings?
