I-360 Approved for Taiwanese Minister
Client: A Church in Ann Arbor
Location: Ann Arbor, Michigan
Beneficiary’s Nationality: Taiwan
BACKGROUND: After the five years of service, a church in Ann Arbor, Michigan, really wished to retain a capable minister for the long run. We were thus retained to secure an immigration status for the choice religious worker from Taiwan.
Date of Application: April 6, 2010
Date of Approval: July 13, 2010
WE HELPED OUR CLIENT prove that—
- The minister had been a member of the denomination, a bona fide religious organization, for two years, and
- The minister had been carrying on religious work continuously for at least two years before the application, and
- The religious worker must be in the U.S. solely for the purpose of acting as a minister in a professional capacity at that organization’s request.
THREE MONTHS LATER, we secured the approval of I-360 as a strong basis for the coming I-485 application (Adjustment of Status to Permanent Residence).
CHALLENGE: Application of an immigration status requires long-term planning and meticulous evidence gathering. From the start, a serious applicant or beneficiary should consider consulting a reliable attorney. After all, this application package asks for even more than religious worker status application. Please remember, reviewers of faith-related status applications read with greater scrutiny. Professional assistance, in most cases, is indispensable.
