Mr. Zhou is dedicated to patented inventions in the field of public health, inventing one disinfection device and holding nine patents. In order to promote his inventions and company abroad, he plans to immigrate to the United States. In 2015, Mr. Zhou had invested $500,000 in EB-5 immigrant investors. While waiting, he gradually realized that EB-1A immigration seemed more suitable for him, and had previously sought domestic agents to evaluate his EB-1A petition, but some indicated that his situation was not up to par or not very certain, so he had been hesitant. in early 2017, Mr. Zhou consulted in detail about his situation and problems with After evaluating Mr. Zhou’s case, Tsang & Associates Law Firm concluded that he had a high probability of meeting the EB-1A immigration requirements and was worthy of applying. After nearly 4 months of preparation, Mr. Zhou submitted over 1,000 pages of supporting documents to the USCIS, and 7 days later, Mr. Zhou successfully obtained approval of his EB-1A petition without requesting a retroactive filing (RFE).
KEYS TO SUCCESS
I-140 approval follow-up.
After receiving the approval from the USCIS, Mr. Zhou was excited and a little bit nervous, after all, the next NVC-consulate is also very important. From filling out the forms to preparing the data, Mr. Zhou left everything to Tsang & Associates Law Firm to take care of him.
NVC Phase: Three weeks from receipt of payment notice, payment of fees, preparation of DS-260 form to data submission.
Consulate stage: We received the interview notice from the Guangzhou Consulate on 12/27, although it was the Christmas and New Year holidays, Zang Dikai’s lawyer team still made a quick response and guided Mr. Zhou’s family to go to the medical examination immediately after the New Year’s work. Mr. Zhou knew the whole process and possible problems, and then updated his resume and some other documents according to the situation.
The face-to-face interview with the consulate officials is often the most worrying part of the process for applicants, especially for EB-1A, where the petition data is thousands of pages, and how to get the right answers in a 15-20 minute interview? After several sessions with his attorney and rehearsals, Mr. Zhou became confident from his original lack of confidence and flew to Guangzhou with his family in early February to attend the interview early in the morning on February 6.
On February 5th, Los Angeles, I received a notification from Mr. Zhou by WeChat at the end of the afternoon that his interview had been successfully passed! He had communicated with the visa officer during the interview, and the documents that the visa officer wanted to see were prepared, so the visa officer gave him a pass on the spot after the interview. Mr. Zhou expressed his gratitude again and again! Mr. Zhou’s family is also very happy with our team of lawyers.
Joseph Tsang has a precise grasp of U.S. immigration regulations and policies, and the documents are well-reasoned; Chen Jie from Shanghai has 12 years of practical experience with visas to the U.S., and is very familiar with different types of visas (immigrant & non-immigrant) for various types of clients from his own visa experience. For immigrant visas, the following advice is given.
Information filled in the same before and after
When filling out the DS-260 form, we make sure to link the data before and after, as well as the content of the DS-160 form from the previous U.S. visa application, and keep the information filled out consistently. We pay great attention to these details, and if there is any discrepancy between the data before and after, we will definitely communicate with the guest clearly before deciding. Therefore, Zang Dikai’s team often takes cases of switching lawyers in the middle of the process, and has seen that the workplace and address information in the I-140, I-526, and DS-260 prepared by the guest’s original lawyer are inconsistent, resulting in the guest being rejected at the consulate, and the reason for rejection is 212(a)(6)( C)(i) fraud! The guest was dumbfounded and felt unbelievably wronged, which was prepared by his former attorney, but he didn’t expect it to be like this.
Advance preparation of notarized certificates
It takes some time to process the notarization, especially if the applicant’s birth record is incomplete, such as not born in a hospital, delivered at home, no birth certificate or lost, it will make the process more difficult, and sometimes it takes a long time to move around and delay the progress. Mr. Chen suggests that you can apply for a birth certificate & marriage certificate at the beginning of the immigration process, so you don’t have to worry about the expiration date. We have seen that due to the loss of the marriage certificate of the applicant’s parents, the parents became illegitimate after the replacement of the marriage certificate ! We almost had to do a DNA test to issue the birth certificate.
Consulate interview should be taken seriously
Some clients think that the USCIS has approved the application and the consulate is just going through the motions, so they can just bring the documents to answer questions. Due to the large number of EB job/employment application documents, the USCIS section is basically prepared by the attorney and the client is often not familiar with the content. After the USCIS approval, many US attorneys are not responsible for the visa part of the consulate, leaving the applicant to “free play”, and the client is looking for information online, not knowing the truth of various statements, sometimes being misled, and most importantly, not knowing how to refine the key points, leading to a loss in the final interview session.
