On April 22, 2013, the USCIS approved an EB-1(c) application we filed for our client on March 15, 2013. The case is filed under regular processing. It however takes the USCIS only less than 40 days to approve the case. Since we also concurrently filed the adjustment of status applications for our client and his families, the USCIS has approved the adjustment of status the same time and as such our client and his families have had their status adjusted to permanent residency.
Our client in this matter came to the US and we filed and obtained his L-1 approvals in the second half of 2011. As the operation of the L-1 company is going well, his company decided to file the I-140 EB-1(c) application for Multi-National Manager for him earlier this year. As said above, the application was received by the USCIS in mid-March this year and was approved on April 22, 2013.
The application was approved outright without receiving Request for Additional Evidence or encountering any challenge or questioning from the USCIS.
