CASE: L-1A petition extension / I-129

PETITIONER: Child Care Center in Cleveland, OH

BENEFICIARY: Chinese Child Care Center Director

Our client is a Chinese company which has its US subsidiary in the greater Cleveland area (Avon Lake).  In 2016, our client opened a new business and has offered child care services to children from the age of 6 weeks to 12 years old. They contacted our office in the middle of June 2017 to seek legal assistance for a possible L-1A extension for their employee. She came from China in 2016 with her L-1A visa to work as a Child Care Center Director.

The L-1A nonimmigrant classification enables a U.S. employer to transfer an executive or manager from one of its affiliated foreign offices to one of its offices in the United States.  This classification also enables a foreign company which does not yet have an affiliated U.S. office to send an executive or manager to the United States with the purpose of establishing one.

Upon retention, our office prepared and eventually filed the L-1A extension petition with various supporting documents. The application included a detailed employer support letter, documentation to demonstrate the qualifying corporate relationship between the parent company in China and the U.S., financial documents, past experience documents, organization chart, and physical premises evidence among others. We filed the L-1A extension petition on June 21, 2017 via premium processing.

Eventually, our client’s L-1A application was approved on June 29, 2017 without any RFE. Her L-1A status has been extended to August 2019.
