E-2 Approval for a Business with Relatively Low Capital
E-2 is a nonimmigrant status available to investors from certain countries who wish to operate a business in the U.S. To acquire E-2 status, the investment must be "substantial" and more than "marginal". When the investment is less than $100,000, getting a USCIS approval can be difficult, especially if the business is a start-up company. We represented a start-up company with $60,000 capital for its E-2 case, and by explaining a nature of its business and providing a detailed business plan, we obtained USCIS approval for the client.

Recent Case Successes
After two years of our continued oversight and follow up, the U.S. Embassy in Korea granted our client's employment-based petition.
Our client entered the U.S. on a fraudulent passport, and returned it to the supplier without keeping a copy of it. We had to prove that he was inspected and admitted into the U.S., not an easy feat when the only piece of evidence proving so is gone.
Our client was a scientist who had to leave the U.S. because he was not selected in the H-1B lottery. He explored the idea of an O-1A with his potential employer, and we went ahead with the case.
