Thanks a lot first for your help here.
I live and work in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil. My company is a VERY well know worldwide Top 5 High U.S Internet Company. I've been with them 1 years and 4 months and they offer me a position in the U.S. They want me to apply to a L1-B Blanket Petition in Rio Consulate.
All requeriments seems ok but I don't have a degree. I study 3 years degree in Communications but didn't finish it. I have 6 years experience in other TOP tech companies in Marketing-Comms roles even in other countries. Since L1-B Blanket requirements says applicant must be "specialized knowledge "professional." My lawyers told me to ask previous employeers a recomendation letter and send 3 years college certification to get a evaluation company to certify a degree using USCIS' 3-for1 rule
My question: If I apply in the consulate to the L1-B Blanket Visa using USCIS' 3-for-1 rule due work experience plus some collegue evaluated by a U.S evaluation company as equivalence of the degree would be fine? Is something can be accepted?
OR Should I keep pushing my company lawyers to apply better into a L1-B Individual?
Thanks for the advise! Obrigado!
You shouldn't 'push' the lawyers to do anything, they have more experience than you do.
If the blanket doesn't work ... the individual option is always available as a fall-back.
Listen to the company lawyers.
NOTE: They're not really 'your' lawyers ... they work for the company ... the company 'owns' the papers.
