[O] Design Architect’s O-1 renewal/transfer petition is approved. 11/20/2017

The beneficiary was under O-1 status sponsored by an agency and he received a full-time job offer from a prestigious architect firm. Song Law Firm’s attorneys filed his extension and transfer petition with the USCIS. The USCIS questioned whether the beneficiary has maintained his O-1 status well while working with the agency. Unfortunately, he participated in only one project and he was not paid through agency. However, Song Law Firm’s attorneys argued that the quality of the project is important than the quantity of the project that the beneficiary has completed to maintain his O-1 status. In addition, we also argued that being paid by an agency is not a requirement to establish the agency relationship. The USCIS approved the petition immediately.
