Religious Immigration Petition Approved

 Religious Immigrant Petition Approved

Belarus


Client: A Sizable Orthodox Church in Cleveland, Ohio

Location: Cleveland, Ohio

Case Type: I-360 Immigration Petition to Be Classified as Special Immigrants (EB-4)


BACKGROUND: An Orthodox church retained us after it decided to hire an outstanding Father on a permanent basis.


Date of Application: January 14, 1998

Date of Approval: February, 5, 1998


WE HELPED OUR CLIENT prove that—

  1. The beneficiary had been a member of the denomination, and
  2. The denomination is a bona fide religious organization, for two years, and
  3. The religious worker had been carrying on religious work continuously for two years on behalf of the denomination or organization, and
  4. The religious worker must be in the U.S. solely for the purpose of acting as a religious worker in a professional capacity at that organization’s request.

WITHIN A MONTH, our client’s choice Father received an immigration status under the category of religious worker. This approval later served as a strong basis for the Church’s I-485 (Green Card) application for the Father.


CHALLENGE: Should anyone like to legally immigrate to the United States, he or she must apply to be classified as an immigrant first. For employment-based immigration, continual employment is the crux. Therefore, the employer must be legal and what it claims to be. Also, the prospective employee, the immigrant, must do what is claimed in the future in the long run. When the aforementioned factors are satisfied, evidence will show that the worker is in the U.S. solely to perform the job as claimed.
