Minister from China Received a Status
Client: A Church in Troy, Michigan
Case Type: R-1 Nonimmigrant Religious Worker Stats
Location: Troy, Michigan
Beneficiary’s Nationality: China
BACKGROUND: The church retained us to expeditiously secure a status for its new full-time religious worker from China.
Date of Application: January 13, 2005
Date of Approval: January 27, 2005
WE HELPED OUR CLIENT collect sufficient evidence and prove that the full-time religious worker:
- Had had two years of membership in the denomination, and
- Was hired by a registered church or bona fide religious organization, and
- The church has ability to adequately compensate the full-time worker, AND
- The full-time worker was invited to the U.S. solely for the purpose fulfilling religious occupation.
CHALLENGES: R-1 status was still easier at this time, it now takes at least 6 months. This particular program used to be more trustworthy, prior to a string of fraudulent cases, encompassing major faiths. Now, reviewing officers examine each case with greater scrutiny. As a result, the evidence gathering and sorting are not only tedious, but also mentally-consuming. In short, should your religious organization want to hire an agreeable minister, please hire a reliable attorney to argue persuasively, on your behalf. Detroit immigration layer is ready to be at your service and to practice best policy– honesty.
