H-1B Success Story 1
The Law Office of Xiaomin Hu just received another approval notice. It was a remarkable success for both of our client and the firm.
I. Background on Case
In 2020, the Employer of an electric vehicle manufacturing company that develops self-driving technologies needed a position filled by someone who has a master’s degree. The position that needed to be fulfilled in the company was as a Software Engineer.
Company’s field of business: Automobile
Company location: California, Los Angeles
Company size: more than 5 million revenue 10-100 employee
Job Title of the proffered position: Software Engineer
Wage level: Level 2
Application Type: initial application
Service Center: California Service Center
Processing Service Type: Premium Processing
II. Issues and strategies
Issues: Specialty Occupation and educational background of the beneficiary
The primary issue and difficulty of this case is that the beneficiary’s master’s degree is not in software engineering or related field, which is normally required for positions like Software Engineer. To solve this issue and avoid Request for Evidence (RFE), The beneficiary and attorneys took a deep look into the beneficiary’s transcripts and demonstrated that the beneficiary studied many courses. Moreover, the attorney also collected the beneficiary’s prior working experience in software engineering. Through courses studied and working experiences in software engineering, the attorney successfully proved that the beneficiary is highly qualified for the proffered Software Engineer position.
The fact that the beneficiary had working and educational experience in computer science and engineering helped the attorney to prove the beneficiary’s qualification for the job. Another strength of the case is that the employer was relatively large and high-tech, which legitimate their need of hiring a Software Engineer.
III. The Result
The case was successfully approved in 45 days. Due to the substantial evidence provided, the case was approved very fast without RFE.
The fulfillment of the education requirement for an H-1B position shall not be solely based on the name of the bachelor’s or master’s degree. An experienced attorney shall fully explore the beneficiary’s transcript and working experience and determine whether the beneficiary is qualified for the position.
The Law Office of Xiaomin Hu, P.C. worked tirelessly on this case. Being that the staff working there as most of our attorneys and assistants are primarily immigrants, we they know exactly what other migrants our clients go through as they’re waiting for a decision. Such feeling of relatedness makes us put in 100% effort in every case.
The Law Office of Xiaomin Hu, P.C. never reveals details of any case handled by our firm, nor the identity of any client. Please note that all cases are different. Even with cases that appear to be similar, past success does not guarantee a favorable result.
