*Employment Third Preference Other Workers Category:  Section 203(e) of the Nicaraguan and Central American Relief Act (NACARA) passed by Congress in November 1997, as amended by Section 1(e) of Pub. L. 105-139, provides that once the Employment Third Preference Other Worker (EW) cut-off date has reached the priority date of the latest EW petition approved prior to November 19, 1997, the 10,000 EW numbers available for a fiscal year are to be reduced by up to 5,000 annually beginning in the following fiscal year. This reduction is to be made for as long as necessary to offset adjustments under the NACARA program. Since the EW final action date reached November 19, 1997 during Fiscal Year 2001, the reduction in the EW annual limit to 5,000 began in Fiscal Year 2002. For Fiscal Year 2022 this reduction will be limited to approximately 150.

基于婚姻的绿卡申请需准备的证据材料

基于婚姻的移民绿卡申请成功的最关键在于证明申请人(美国公民或永久绿卡持有人)与非美国公民的配偶之间的婚姻是真实的,不是为了逃避移民法、单纯为获取绿卡而缔结的虚假婚姻。除了需要提交最基本的身份证明材料及结婚证复印件(如果其中一方曾经离过婚,提供离婚证明复印件)外,申请人应视个人具体情况提交如下证明婚姻真实性的证据材料:

美国新法下80万美元区域中心投资移民

美国移民法允许某些以就业为基础的非公民移民投资1,050,000美元(800,000美元投资到目标就业区域或基础设施项目)到一个新的商业企业(NCE)—也称为EB-5项目—并且创造至少10个就业机会而成为合法的永久居民(获得绿卡)。 投资者的配偶及21岁以下未婚子女也有资格申请绿卡。投资可分为直接投资和通过美国公民及移民局(USCIS)批准的区域中心投资。直接投资模式中,投资者将资金直接投资于NCE,NCE将负责创造所需的就业机会,因此也被视为创造就业机会的实体(JCE)。相比之下,通过区域中心投资的EB-5资金由区域中心管理,其投资的经济实体中有多个NCE,NCE和JCE通常是分开的。

Prepare an EB-1A Petition

For an EB-1A petition, different attorneys have distinct ways to handle it. We would thoroughly evaluate a possible case according to the specific facts of a prospective client and decide whether to represent the client.  If a representation decision has been made, we generally first help our clients collect as much as possible relevant, probative, and credible evidence as per our deep understanding of the pertinent laws, policies, and most recently published cases which we regularly study.  Second, we review carefully every document (including reference letters) that is intended to be submitted to prove our client's eligibility and resolve any inconsistencies or discrepancies among the evidentiary documents, in case there is any.  If an examiner raises any doubt on one of the evidentiary pieces, the credibility of the remaining evidence will be negatively affected, and the examiner might deny the petition in the worst case. Third, we search the internet and check if there is adverse information about our client (and take corresponding steps when necessary) because the examiner may consider the evidence publicly available from the World Wide Web. Finally, we make sure every documentation that is in a foreign language other than English to be translated into English by a competent translator with a certificate of translation in compliance with 8 C.F.R. § 103.2(b)(3).
