Program Summary

The Build Back Better Bill, as passed by the US House of Representatives on November 19, 2021, includes immigration provisions that will have an immediate impact on the practice of immigration law. While there has been much discussion about the Bill increasing the number of available immigrant visas (green cards), very little attention is paid to the numerous fee-increases included in the Bill. The supplemental fees included in the House version of the Build Back Better Bill applies to both immigrant and nonimmigrant filings, and are significantly higher than the fee increases that were proposed by the Department of Homeland Security in 2020. This 1 hour CLE will take a closer look at the immigration provisions included in the House version of the Build Back Better Bill so that you can better prepare your clients for the Bill’s potential immediate financial impact.

This course is co-sponsored with myLawCLE.

Key topics to be discussed:

  • Recapturing unused immigrant visa numbers from 1992 to 2021
  • Retaining the availability of Diversity Visas from fiscal years 2017 to 2021
  • Early filing of Adjustment of Status applications
  • Additional filing fee surcharges
