AAO Appeal of Denied L1A Petition

Case Conclusion Date: 05.07.2013

Practice Area: Immigration

Outcome: Appeal Sustained and Remanded to USCIS for Approval

Description: Our office prepared an L1A filing for a large golf products manufacturer and distributor to petition for the company's executive level manager to manage affair relating to the operations in the U.S. The USCIS District Director denied the filing by finding that the structure of the company was insufficient to allow the executive to operate in an executive capacity. An appeal with the AAO was filed. AAO issued an opinion stating that the District Director erred in finding the position was not managerial or executive level under the INA.
