This concise, one volume treatise serves as a useful guide for any practitioner on immigration legal standards and procedures. With the most recent November 2012 update, the authors have fully incorporated all final rules and procedures resulting from the Immigration Act of 1990, the most comprehensive revision of the nation's immigration laws since the enactment of the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952.
The authors provide in depth coverage of each of the major means to gain permanent residence in the United States:
- Employment based immigration
- Family sponsored immigration
- Diversity based immigration
Commentaries throughout the treatise are especially useful in providing practice tips and amplifying information. Also included is an extensive list of annotated immigration forms as well as a table of cases and index.
