L-1A Approved One Day after receiving the RFE Response
September 20, 2023

Table of ContenTS

The Law Offices of Sabrina Li is excited to share with you a recent success story that showcases our dedication, expertise, and resourcefulness when it comes to overcoming challenges in the immigration law landscape.

Our client was the intended beneficiary of an L-1A petition filed by a newly established U.S. company. We were approached to address a Request for Evidence (RFE), which posed significant questions about the nature of our client's services, his executive position in Ecuador, as well as the size and potential of the U.S. office.

Rather than being deterred, our legal team swiftly got into action. We compiled a comprehensive RFE response that addressed each concern meticulously. We first addressed the USCIS’s wrongful application of the law and successfully rebutted it by leveraging existing regulations. To tackle each issue raised in the RFE, our legal team reinforced the client's case with solid arguments backed by relevant documentation.

Part of our strategy involved effectively demonstrating the client's vital role for both the foreign company and the petitioning U.S. entity by guiding the client in collecting concrete examples of his executive duties both abroad and for the proposed U.S. operation.

In the end, our client-oriented approach and expertise in dealing with complex immigration challenges paid off. The USCIS approved our client's L-1A petition, within one day of the filing of the RFE response, marking yet another victory for our clients and a testament to our team's skills and determination.

For foreign employers seeking to send an employee to the United States as an executive or manager to establish a new office, the employer must also show that:

  • The employer has secured sufficient physical premises to house the new office;
  • The employee has been employed as an executive or manager for one continuous year in the three years preceding the filing of the petition; and
  • The intended U.S. office will support an executive or managerial position within one year of the approval of the petition.

At the Law Offices of Sabrina Li, our mission is to turn challenges into opportunities, and this success story underscores our commitment to that ethos.
