Success Story: L-1A Extension Application Approved

Since 2013, the USCIS has noticeably tightened the processing and adjudicating of L-1 applications, new office or extension applications alike.  As a result, we have strived hard to deal with those sometimes very irrational RFEs.  This probably is the biggest problem of L-1 applications nowadays.  No matter what, we are glad that a challenged L-1A extension application we filed on May 7, 2014 was finally approved by the USCIS on August 6, 2014 after much of fight with the government.

 

Our client in this case has substantial annual revenue and employed over 30 people.  Yet unbelievably, the USCIS still challenged about the duties performed by our client!  The documents we submitted is voluminous and explanation pages after pages.  This, unfortunately, have become more and more a normal happening in L-1 applications.  Readers and clients wishing to apply for L-1s should be geared up for fighting the possible irrational requests.

 

Lin & Valdez is renowned for our handling of employment and business-related immigration petitions. Our managing attorney Stewart Lin has an LLM from Boston University in international banking law and hence is keen to all business related issues.  Another attorney of our firm, Mr. Zack Huang, has a undergraduate major in Economy from Cornell University.  Over the years, we have filed countless investment related visa petitions for our clients around the world.  If your company is a parent or subsidiary company of a foreign company, and you wish to apply for managerial personnel or foreign employee with special knowledge, please contact us.  The help you need, as we always say, is just a click away.
