StatueAs an L-1B Person of Specialized Knowledge

Specialized worker must have a unique knowledge or expertise in the organization’s processes and procedures.

Company- worker relationship must be well documented to the USCIS. It is important to fully and clearly explain how the submitted evidence establishes eligibility for petition approval. The more clearly the petitioner can articulate his or her eligibility, the more efficiently and consistently USCIS can review and process the petition and determine eligibility for the benefit sought. Furthermore, the petitioning company must continue to function for the L-1 Visa to remain valid.

Once visa’s worker is approved, spouses may work full-time with the proper employment authorization from the USCIS, and dependent children can live and study in the US as well. In addition, the L-1 Visa holder and family may be eligible for permanent residency (Green Card).

Just keep in mind, if you are thinking of investing in Houston, it is highly recommended that first you speak with an experienced and certified immigration attorney.
