Self-petitions in Employment Based Immigrant Visas

There are few types of immigrant visas where an applicant is the Self -Petitioner of his own employment Visa.

NIW (National Interest Waiver) may be the preferred choice when petitioner is a young researcher with noticeable scientific qualifications & impressive research achievements.

Because each research category & scientific field is different, applying the exact same criteria in investigation of an individual’s qualification may be erroneous, although, USCIS uses certain standards to assess the eligibility.

When assessing an NIW candidate, its important to know the applicant’s background accurately. Publications, citations & peer reviews are important, but not always outcome determinative. To learn more contact a qualified lawyer.

Marriage Based Green Cards

It is a common belief that receiving a Green Card   through marriage is an easy process; statistics on complex issues arising out of failed petitions on cases lacking professional representations, make me believe otherwise.

Most married couples never think whether their marriage are real. They might assess whether they married for the right reasons, but they are never officially asked to prove their motives.

A green card applicant, however, must prove the sincerity of her marriage.

The proof does not relate to one single document. The officer will look at totality of the circumstances, meaning all the conditions surrounding the situation.

Officer’s scrutiny will be detailed & the assessment would determine approval or denial. Professional representation is often the key to pass most hurtles.

Required Amount of Investment for E2 Visas

How much money do we actually need to invest in the US to receive a treaty visa & where it can be held?

In September 1997, US Immigration & State Department each published final rules for treaty visas.

The rules allowed usage of escrow accounts till a visa is approved or denied.

The substantial amount of money for visa approval was defined based on the value of the business.

If the company is valued under $ 500,000, the investor must invest equal or greater than 75% of the value. If the company is valued between $500,000 to $3000,000, 50% suffices. And, for the companies with over $3000,000, 30% is adequate.

Treaty visas  are complex & require extensive supporting documents, therefore attorney’s representation is highly recommended.
