I am here on H-1 but was working for the parent company for 10 months. Employer wants to change my status to L-1A to reflect the senior managerial role I would be playing in near future. Company sees me as a very important and key resource with senior employees reporting to me from parent and current office.
There is a clause here (http://www.uscis.gov/ilink/docView/AFM/HTML/AFM...) "Even so, when the adjudicating officer is convinced that the evidence substantiates the work experience for an L-1 nonimmigrant, the petition may be approved".
My Question is should I apply for L-1A with strong documentation from the company and take a chance ?. I did MS in computer science here in USA and have around 14 years of experience
1. Your employer is the one that needs to apply.
2. You and your employer must meet all the requirements, including being employed one year abroad for the company.
Your employer needs to retain an experienced immigration lawyer, whether myself or one of my colleagues, to review all the facts, advise them, and handle the case.
