Our Process

We will prepare an attorney cover letter along with all forms and supporting documents for the EB-1C petition, including:

  • Personal representation and maintenance of petition until decision is made by USCIS
  • Expert Opinion Letter
  • Sample Statement for authorized official of organization
  • Crafting Business Plan if New Office
  • Construct organizational chart

STEP ONE: Initial Meeting & Fact Gathering

Upon employer’s request to initiate an EB-1C petition, Tsang and Associates will first discuss the options and whether the EB-1C is the best option for them.

  • Have you worked in a managerial or executive position for one out the past three years?
  • Has the U.S. Company been doing business for at least one year?
  • Is there a qualifying relationship between the Foreign and the U.S. entity?
  • Will your position be managerial or executive in nature?

If it is, we will send out fact gathering information to the employer and EB-1C candidate. Once the documents are submitted, Tsang and Associates will assess the information and supporting documentation and apprise the employer of any issues or concerns.

STEP TWO: Build Case

We will collect four aspects of supporting documents:

  • Documentation about the U.S. company (petitioner)
  • Documentation about the foreign affiliated/related company
  • Documentation establishing a qualifying company relationship (affiliates, parent-subsidiary, branch, or equity joint-venture)
  • Documentation about the beneficiary’s managerial/executive experience

Our attorneys will help draft business plans, sample letters, personal resumes, or whatever documents need to be added to strengthen the application.

 STEP THREE: EB-1C Filing

After client has reviewed the petition letter and exhibit index, we complete all necessary forms and file the application.  Generally, the government processing time for the EB-1 visa is about 8 months. Once the EB-1 has been approved, the government takes about 6 more months to issue permanent residence.
