Religious Worker Received Status

Religious Worker Received Status

Taiwan


Client: A Church in Solon, Ohio (A Suburb of Cleveland, Ohio)

Location: Cleveland, Ohio

Caste Type: I-129 Petition for a Nonimmigrant Worker (R Category for Religious Worker)


BACKGROUND: Our client, a church in Solon, found a desirable candidate to serve its congregation for specific short term needs. We were therefore retained to acquire a short term status for the choice candidate from Taiwan on behalf of our client.


Date of Application: January 15, 2008

Date of Approval: October 30, 2008


WE HELPED OUR CLIENT collect sufficient evidence and prove that the full time worker:

  1. Had had two years of membership in the denomination, and
  2. Was hired by a registered church or bona fide religious organization, and
  3. The church has ability to adequately compensate the full-time worker, AND
  4. The full-time worker was invited in the U.S. solely for the purpose fulfilling religious.

NINE MONTHS LATER, AFTER ONE REQUEST FOR EVIDENCE, our client’s minister was able to serve with an official status.


CHALLENGE: Religious worker is a relatively new nonimmigrant worker category. Therefore, a string of fraudulent cases were discovered prior to 2008 and triggered some changes in reviewing practices. Now, U.S.C.I.S. (a branch of the Department of Homeland Security) now examine claims and evidence of each case with higher scrutiny. Requests for evidence, notice that more evidence is required for consideration of an approval, have been issued regularly since such cases were discovered. Please consult a trustworthy attorney before you undertake this time-consuming application. Cleveland immigration lawyer is ready to be at your service.
