A longtime U.S. client and world leader in its field retained the Marks Gray Immigration team in order to bring Mr. P., an Operations Manager-Engineering, and his family as an intra-company transfer, to the U.S. in L-1A status. Mr. P was an experienced engineer and member of the company’s global management team. He initially worked for the parent company in Europe. He was later transferred to their China subsidiary to serve the Asian market and compliment the demands of the U.S. clients. He had been working in the Chinese subsidiary for seven years as their Chief Operations Officer. He managed the Chinese subsidiary where he oversaw over 20 employees and managed a budget of over $5 million dollars. He would be coming to the U.S. subsidiary to manage engineering projects and a team of approximately 11 workers including managers and professionals. His role and skills were of great significance to the U.S. business and key to their ongoing ability to fulfill customers’ agreements and company growth. This case required us to strategize and provide a complex set of evidence outlining the required relationship of the three companies involved. These companies were created under three different legal systems and the supporting documentation was very different. We also assembled the required evidence that Mr. P. had worked for the company abroad for at least one year in a managerial capacity. We included agreements and contracts to show his accomplishments and skills. We prepared a strong I-129 petition highlighting the required evidence and showcasing our clients’ accomplishments. The petition was filed using premium processing and approved in 12 days. After the USCIS petition approval, we guided Mr. P and his family through the filing of documents and forms required to obtain their L-1A and L-2 visas in China. We responded to a simple and unwarranted request for additional documents (these documents had already been filed but the consular officer requested them again). Five days after the submission of the newly requested documents, their visas were approved. Mr. P, his wife and young daughter will be arriving in the U.S. in August. We look forward to meeting them in the U.S. We know they will continue to contribute to our country and community.
