Advance Parole Approval
Quick Approval To Travel To Spain For Employment & Competition In The European Basketball League
I was able to get her advanced parole (aka travel document) and work permit approved by U.S. Citizen and Immigration Services in 3 weeks! (It usually takes 4-6 months to receive approval, but because of our hard work the client was able to make it to Spain just in time to compete.)
Alien of Extraordinary Ability (EB1-A) Approval
Indian National from San Jose, CA who works in Tech (he’s worked for companies such as Facebook, Samsung, Qualcomm, etc.)
I had to prove that he was an “Alien of Extraordinary Ability” in order to gain approval for an EB1-A visa (a tough visa to obtain because it does not require employer sponsorship & is reviewed with high scrutiny due to the requirements). The major benefit of this visa, in addition to waiving the employer requirement, is that Indian nationals, instead of waiting 10 years to become eligible for a green card, can usually apply for a green card right away after receiving approval of the petition. His qualifications seemed a bit dull at first view, but I felt confident that his petition had potential with some good legal writing. I was able to get his application approved in 6 days after submission with no Request for Additional Evidence (RFEs). He and his wife are now able to “skip the wait times” and apply for a green card under his approved visa category.
Naturalization/Citizenship Appeal Approval (with a criminal record)
Haitian national who had been a legal permanent resident in the U.S. for many years. Her record contained several offenses for theft.
Client tried applying for Naturalization on her own, but she was denied due to her inability to prove Good Moral Character (GMC). She came to me for help after her denial. She thought that she missed the deadline to appeal the decision, but I informed her of a recently approved extension that the USCIS set in place because of Covid. Even with the extension, I was still pressed for time to prep her case, so we had to work quickly to gather the required evidence. When I prepped her application, I explained the statutory guidance applicable to her case (being that the incident occurred more than 5 years ago, and as a result, the USCIS had no legal authority in which to question the client about the incident). I also provided supporting evidence to prove that she did in fact possess the requisite Good Moral Character for Naturalization. Her appeal was approved. The client’s dream was to become a police officer. She had passed the exams and received the clearance she needed– becoming a U.S. Citizen was the final step to make her dream come true.
”After applying for citizenship on my own and being denied, I came to Olivia for help. She was able to file my appeal under a very tight deadline and convinced immigration to approve me for citizenship. Throughout the entire process, Olivia was very professional and understanding. She will go out of her way to fight for your case.~ John M.

Not only did she help my husband and I with all the documents needed, but she was always answering my questions, guiding us, and always so responsive.
