Our Persistence Pays off in Consular Case
We had a client who went for his I-140 interview at the U.S. embassy in Korea. We subsequently received notice from the Department of State that they were revoking approval of the employment-based petition with no explanation as to why. We spent many months corresponding with the embassy and failed to gain an explanation. However, we did not give up and continued our efforts to reach a positive resolution for the client once the case was returned to USCIS. Finally, after two years of our continued oversight and follow up, USCIS reviewed the case again, overruled DOS, and sent the file back to Korea for consular processing.

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 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.
