New Office L-1A Cases


When processing L-1A Cases one should pay particular attention to the Business Plan. For example, the USCIS almost always examines the Business Plan to see whether the U.S. Petitioner plans to, within the first 12 months of their operations, employ at least one subordinate professional, as well as additional professionals and/or administrative workers.

Also, the projected hiring schedule and any expansion plans (which should be listed in the business plan in detail) should not contradict other corporate documents including financials, lease (size and type of the offices should be sufficient to accommodate projected number of employees), or Beneficiary's past experience.

We have attached to this email a PDF file graphically depicting some of the elements of the L-1A Business Plan. We hope your paralegal will find it helpful
