Hello my name is ***** ***** I am delighted to answer your questions today. I have 35 years experience as an immigration lawyer.I am trying to clarify that you had an L1A status RECENTLY APPROVED. What immigration status did you hold when the petition was approved?Please tell me if this was a change of status or a new employment petition filed by the employer. Do you have an I-797 Notice of Action Approval Notice that says "Consular Proccesing" is required? Thank you for your patience. I want to make sure we are both on the same page. Judith

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
