P-1 Approved for Professional Boxer Without Complete Itinerary
Our law firm was able to secure approval of a P-1 petition for a boxer wishing to train and develop his professional career in the United States, without having an itinerary for all 5 years of the validity of the petition. As part of the P-1 petition, the petitioner must submit an itinerary of events for the entire length of the requested period. However, because boxing events are not planned out that far in advance, and some events are scheduled with only a few weeks notice, we were unable to provide a complete itinerary listing the beneficiary’s boxing matches over the requested 5 year period. Instead, we obtained a letter from an authority in the boxing industry explaining how fight scheduling works and that a 5 year itinerary would be impossible to provide. We submitted the letter as evidence and received a speedy approval for our boxer.

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.
