L-1A and L-1B Challenges Met for Canadian Nationals
Cases in the L-1A and L-1B categories are challenging to prepare, as extensive documentation is required to prove the qualifying nature of both the employing corporation and the positions offered. We were nonetheless able to meet this high evidentiary standard in two recent cases on behalf of a Canadian software consulting firm petitioning for two executives. An advantage is that due to the high standard, evidence supporting these petitions will be very helpful in gaining subsequent permanent resident status for the beneficiaries.

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 was a violinist whose non-profit employer did not have the budget to pay the required filing fees to support her H-1B visa extension. However, when we examined her resume and interviewed her, we saw that perhaps she had the elements for an approvable O-1 “Alien of Extraordinary Ability in the Arts” case.
