ABA publishes practical immigration guide

The American Bar Association has published “Immigration Checklists and Practice Pointers,” a practical guide for in-house counsel, human resource managers, private practitioners and their staff to quickly evaluate visa eligibility issues and filing requirements. The book is a hands-on desk reference for practitioners who need fast answers for business visas and immigration issues.

Immigration filings have some unique pressures: urgent deadlines involving I-94 expiration dates, varied and complex procedures for numerous visa petitions, constantly changing regulations and government agencies that provide little leeway for error. This book allows practitioners to quickly find a rule and obtain immediate guidance on key issues. It includes:

  • Eligibility analyses designed to provide a short review of the requirements for any given visa petition.

  • Practice pointers designed to provide quick access to difficult issues that may arise.

  • Checklists to guide practitioners about what to include in a petition.

  • An acronyms section with common immigration acronyms.
