On July 1, 2013, the USCIS approved another EB-1(c) application we filed for our client. Since our client is still in foreign country, the client will proceed to the consular processing for green card issuance.
Our client in this matter is an owner and top manager of a foreign company. The company came to the US and acquired over 50% shareholding of an existing US company. In stead of applying for L-1, our client opted to apply for green card directly under EB-1(c) with our help.
The case was filed in Sept. of 2012. Even though we never received any challenge or request for evidence, the case was not approved until July 1 of 2013 because in the mean time the USCIS ˇ§misplacedˇ¨ the file. Our office relentlessly chased down the file and we finally received the approval recently.
