  1. June 2, 2021 – E-2 Approved After RFE and NOID

    Our client is a citizen of Jordan. He entered the US on an B-1 visa, and we filed his change of status to E-2. His business was a retail shop, but he also purchased CBD products. USCIS questioned whether he had a license to buy/sell CBP products, and whether the CBP products conformed to TX state law. After an RFE and NOID, USCIS approved the case for 2 years.

  2. March 24, 2021 – F-1 Reinstatement Approved for Indian National

    Our client, an Indian national, had her OPT application denied because her international student office did not provide her an I-20 in time. She appealed that decision, but it was denied and she was out of status.

    Thereafter, we filed an F-1 reinstatement request and argued that her failure to maintain her status was due to exceptional circumstances beyond her control, and that if her F-1 status were to be denied, she would experience extreme hardship. After USCIS issued an RFE, the case was approved.

  3. December 09, 2020 – Late Filed TPS Approved for Nepali National

    Our client did not register for TPS when the program opened, but she was able to maintain her non-immigrant status since then. Her most recent entry was on parole, making her TPS application even more tenuous. However, USCIS approved the late filed TPS application nonetheless, without an RFE.

  4. October 27, 2020 – NIW Petition Approved for Expert in Fume Exposure

    Our client, a citizen of Brazil, was in the U.S. on a J-1 visa. Attorney Furqan Sunny Azhar filed his NIW petition on the basis that his work was in the national interest. He argued that our client’s research in the sources of emissions and the risk of human exposure was particularly important for front-line healthcare workers. USCIS approved the I-140 NIW petition, thus paving the path for his permanent residency application.

  5. October 20, 2020 – L-1A Approved for Functional Manager with 5 Month Gap in 1 Year Requirement Abroad

    Our client, a citizen of India, was present in the U.S. on an H-4 visa. Before having come to the U.S., he worked as an Operations Manager outside the U.S. However, during the 18 months that he was abroad, he spent 5 of those months inside the U.S. in H-4 status. Also, as an Operations Manager, he only directly managed 2 people. Furqan Azhar filed his L-1A and argued that he met the requirements of a “Functional Manager,” and that his 5 months stay in the U.S. while on H-4, did not disrupt the continuity of his requirement that he serve abroad for at least 1 year as a manger. USCIS approved the L-1A petition without an RFE.
