Immigration law and the family: a practical guide to family-sponsored immigration
352 pages. Updated by new edition.
This guide, put out by the American Immigration Lawyers Association, summarizes and makes more plain the family-sponsored immigration process that allows for U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents to sponsor their family members for immigration purposes. It is aimed at immigration lawyers and looks at status adjustments, consular processing, immigration through marriage, grounds of inadmissibility, waivers of inadmissibility, affidavits of support, self-petitions for abused spouses and children, and the ethical issues in family-based immigration law. The author does not intend it to be an in-depth legal reference; instead, it should serve as a straightforward explanation that addresses the complexities of the law. It also includes sample legal forms (motions and waivers), a very detailed table of contents, and a subject index.
