Please join us for Tahirih’s upcoming free, non-CLE Pro Bono Network webinars:
- September 16: Understanding Waivers and Extreme Hardship in Humanitarian Cases – REGISTER
Now that you know your client is inadmissible, what can you do about it? In this webinar, Tahirih staff will dive into the world of waivers, reviewing which waivers are available for which inadmissibility grounds and case types, and discuss relevant waiver standards, including the extreme hardship standard.
- October 21: Strategies to Corroborate your Client’s Testimony – REGISTER
Whether you are seeking to meet your VAWA, T visa or U visa client’s burden on the “any credible evidence standard” or endeavoring to meet the heightened REAL ID Act requirements on credibility and corroboration for your asylum client, corroboration of your client’s facts and testimony is an essential element to a successful claim. Tahirih staff will explore why corroboration matters and identify strategies to successfully corroborate your client’s claim through sources including primary evidence and affidavits from witnesses within the U.S. or abroad.
- November 18: Immigrant Visa Consular Processing – REGISTER
Congratulations, you’ve helped your client get their VAWA self-petition or asylum claim approved. Now how do you get their qualifying relatives who are abroad to the U.S.? In this webinar, Tahirih staff will review the basics of immigrant visa and derivative asylee consular processing, including practice pointers to troubleshoot common challenges. Attendees will also be briefed on recent legal and policy updates, as well as Covid-19 related agency updates.
