He left to school in Europe before the advanced parole got here
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
It was all schedule for him to have it before leaving but Our business manager never sent the payment
Immigration Lawyer: Guillermo J. Senmartin, Esq., Immigration Lawyer replied 1 year ago
Well, it wasn't enough just to file the Advance Parole before leaving. He had to have the Advance Parole approved before leaving. Why didn't he wait? And are you willing to marry him?

"Well the first time we submitted before I left the country, and it didn't proceed because the payment was incorrect so they sent it back. The second time it was wrong because someone at immigration told me to fill in a different form so I did and they sent everything back. And the third time I asked them if they were sure that that was the right one (I have emails to proove it) and they said to send it and that it was all good to go. So I did and they took it and sent a letter saying that it had been received that they were going to notify me if they needed any more evidence. "

He's my business partner, I am already married

He couldn't wait because he had to go to school
Immigration Lawyer: Guillermo J. Senmartin, Esq., Immigration Lawyer replied 1 year ago
But still, he had to have waited for approval before leaving the U.S. That was his biggest error. Does he have a U.S. Citizen or U.S. Lawful Permanent Resident spouse or parent?

No

Ok. Then he cannot qualify for an immigrant waiver. That means we have to look at non-immigrant visas. How much money does he personally have invested in the business and how many employees does the business have?

He is a published fashion designer of some noteriety. His entire livelyhood and half of mine are invested in the fashion house. Since he has been stuck in Mexico the last year, all our employees have left. Currently it's just the two of us.
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Do we have any options as far as an o-visa? Or anything on the grounds that he is MY source of income?
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
We have a fashion show scheduled at an art gallery in September
Immigration Lawyer: Guillermo J. Senmartin, Esq., Immigration Lawyer replied 1 year ago
Well, yes, an O-1 is possible if he could prove national or international recognition in the field. Whatever visa he tries for, he will need a 212(d)(3) waiver which can either be done by the immigration officer at the interview or after just on their computer (take a look at this link): https://fam.state.gov/searchapps/viewer?format=html&query=212(d)(3)&links=212,D,3&url=/FAM/09FAM/09FAM030503.html#M305_3_3_A You can find more information here: http://www.ilw.com/articles/2003,0930-labrie.shtm Here is a link to the O-1: https://www.uscis.gov/working-united-states/temporary-workers/o-1-visa-individuals-extraordinary-ability-or-achievement The investor visas, he has to have his own money invested and it has to be a substantial investment. The law does not say an exact amount, but most attorneys recommend $100,000 or more for L-1 and $200,000 or more for an E visa. Regardless, as I said, whichever one he chooses, he will need the waiver. My goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have received anything less, please reply back as I am happy to address follow-up questions and there is no additional charge. Also, should you need to chat on the phone, private email or need help reviewing documentation, I am happy to do so for a small additional cost. Let me know if you are interested in these – I am happy to give you more details! When we are done, if you would be so kind as to leave a positive rating for my service, I would sincerely ***** ***** You can do that by clicking on the 3rd, 4th or 5th stars if you see them, or the smiley faces if you see them. If you do not see any stars or smiley faces, please at least leave a THANK YOU for me so I can let the administrators know. Your question thread does NOT close, so you can ask additional questions without additional charge even after leaving a positive rating. Thank you for your understanding.
