The Allegheny Bar Association is offering a CLE program entitled The Road to U.S. Citizenship: Navigating the Naturalization Process on Friday, February 17, 2017, from 10:00 am - 12:00 pm. The program will be held at the Koppers Building Conference Center, 436 Seventh Ave., 9th Floor, Pittsburgh, PA 15219.
This fundamental-level CLE is designed to provide volunteer attorneys with the skills needed to represent clients through the naturalization process in front of Department Homeland Security-USCIS.
The first hour will focus on the basics of naturalization law, including who is eligible to file and what possible issues need to be spotted. The second hour will focus on the process itself and how to avoid “going off track.” Specifics include how and when to fill out the application, waivers (health and others), residency issues, criminal issues, taxes and other hurdles to watch out for.
Thanks to the John A. Meehan Citizen Institute, a limited number of volunteer attorneys who agree to represent clients on a pro bono basis may register and attend at no cost.
Upon completion of this CLE, volunteer attorneys will be asked to work with a client and take their case from initial intake to the citizenship ceremony. If you are interested in volunteering, contact Barbara Griffin at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and to register.
