L-1A Intracompany Transferee Executive or Manager

Chicago Immigration Attorneys – Call (312) 702-1782

Some of the most valuable employees in an international corporation can be executives or managers working in foreign offices or locations. When it would be beneficial for communications and intracompany interactions to have such a valued foreign executive closer to American headquarters, an employer-based in the United States can petition to have them brought into the country. The process requires the use and understanding of L-1A intracompany transferee executive or manager nonimmigrant classifications.

Milla & Associates, LLC is an immigration law firm in Chicago that handles L-1A Intracompany Transferee Executive or Manager cases. We can help you from start to finish, beginning with getting the right immigration petitions and filing them in a timely manner. To learn more about employment-based immigration services, feel free to contact us at any time.

Important Considerations for L-1A Intracompany Transfers

In order for the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) to approve your Form I-129, Petition for Nonimmigrant Worker petition, a handful of prerequisites will need to be met. L-1A Intracompany Transfers for an executive or a manager demand a specific set of requirements due to the uniqueness of the immigration situation.

In your L-1A intracompany transferee executive or manager case:

  • You must be an employer actively conducting business within the United States.
  • You must have a “qualifying relationship” with a foreign company.
  • The foreign employee must have executive or managerial duties that require little oversight or permit the oversight of others within the organization.
  • The foreign employee will be allocated into a place of employment in the United States;
  • Or, the foreign employee must assist with the establishment of a new office in the United States.

If the L-1A intracompany transferee process is approved by the USCIS, the period of stay granted to the employee will range between one and three years. One year's permission to stay is given to employees who are transferred to assist with the establishment of a new location. Three-year permissions are generally given to employees who are transferred for other reasons. An L-1A employee can request stay extensions up until they have remained in the country for seven years.

Understand Your Rights as an Immigrant & Use Them

The L-1A intracompany transferee process can be highly complicated due to a number of outlying factors, such as the employee’s company of origin, whether or not the employee has family members, and so forth. To remove the guesswork from your case and expedite the process of bringing a foreign executive or manager into the United States, call to connect with Milla & Associates, LLC.

  • Excellent Service Better Attorney

    “Robert made sure I understood everything that was going on ad answered all my questions to the best of his knowledge. Before going to Robert for my immigration status, I looked around but other attorneys were not nearly as insightful or helpful as Robert. Robert always made sure that I was prepared for everything that I was going to through. For the interview he prepared me so well that I was not nervous when talking to the officers. Robert made sure I was aware of all the possible outcomes when I acquired his services. Robert made sure that I had the best experience possible for the trials that I was going to face with the immigration process. Result: Form I-751 Petition with waiver of joint filing (good faith marriage that ended in divorce) approved”

  • Thanks to Robert’s expertise, we are very happy campers now, ...

    “We were referred to Mr. Milla by our previous attorney, who felt that our case had ‘hit the wall.’ In our opinion, R. Milla was the best thing that happened to our case! After over three years filled with nothing but frustration, we’ve asked for Robert’s help. Our case was based on marriage to US citizen and had some roadblocks along the way, but thanks to Robert’s expertise, we are very happy campers now, planning our first vacation abroad!”

  • AMAZING DOWN TO EARTH PROFESSIONAL

    “My wife Luiza and I were considering filing our marriage petition on our own, but after careful consideration decided to hire an attorney. We were referred to Robert and could have have been more pleased. It was a stressful time for both of us as our petition progressed, and Robert did an excellent job of explaining the process. Robert was friendly, calming, and knowledgeable. Having worked in the immigration field for over 5 years, I was very impressed with Robert's demeanor and ability to connect with Luiza and I. We could not thank him enough, and will be recommending him to any of our network contacts. Thanks again, Robert! Ben and Luiza”

  • Would have been lost without them!

    “Fantastic firm and most notably my wonderful attorney Justin Hoefflicker. He was clear and easy to understand, helpful and able to think outside the box to answer our questions and various what if scenarios. We would have been lost without him deciphering the response letters from the USCIS. Thank you Justin!”

  • Robert helped us file the waiver and it was approved today

    “My husband and I had a very complicated I601 and I212 waiver case and had to hire an attorney no matter what. With Robert’s guidance and expertise we were able to put together a very strong argument as to why my husband couldn’t live in Costa Rica and why he needed me with him. Robert helped us file the waiver and it was approved today, November 21st 2013!!!”

  • THANK YOU doesn't quite cover it. - Exceptional, trustworthy ...

    “Result: DACA and employment authorization granted First let me start by saying THANK YOU doesn't quite cover it. Robert is an exceptional attorney! He pays attention to the details. We received no further request for evidence, & it was all over in 2 months. He made us feel very comfortable with the entire process and I was not as intimidated, as I had been in the past with other lawyers that I had worked with. He was always responsive by email or phone and kept us well-informed. Which helped manage any anxiety we might have otherwise had. For the first time in my 26 years in this country I have some normality to my life! With DACA secured, next I look forward to working with Robert on our marriage case and becoming a permanent resident! I know I can trust Robert to guide us through whatever is needed. I highly recommend Robert Milla to any one seeking an immigration attorney. I plan on passing his name along to any family, or friends who may need his services in the future! Thank you Robert!”

  • HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!! Amazing service and very good to work with!

    “I am a US citizen. In 2017 June I planned to file for my mother’s permanent residency. At that time my mother was in US on B2 ( visitor visa). I googled for best immigration attorney in Chicago -Milla & Associates popped up! Let me tell you, Robert and his team lived up to the reviews!!! We started with talking to Robert and he provided hours worth of advise to file permanent residency for my mother. Robert was very patient and answered all our questions and spotted an issue with our case right away. He gave us the option to file myself or to go via him. I went with option of filing myself hoping the issue he spotted won’t become a trouble. Even after deciding to file myself, I had a few follow up questions which he answered over the phone. 4 months later we got a NOID( notice of intent to deny) for the same reason Robert spotted in the first place. We hired him for Respone to NOID. It was such a stressful time preparing and providing supporting documents for the rebuttal response within 30 days. Robert and his team guided what docs needed to be prepared and answered our questions promptly, and was ready to help with any queries and follow up questions. Robert prepared a very strong rebuttal response to the NOID and sent on time. During the period of waiting for an answer from USCIS, he promptly answered my concerns on renewing EAD for my mother. Robert always had a very specific, accurate and clear answer to any queries. And many months later we received an RFE for response to NOID( which in itself is a BIG relief) as NOID was off the plate and USCIS was giving us one more chance. Robert and his team again stepped up to the challenge and gave very specific detailed guidance to prepare the right set of documents and verified and sent them on time. And in September we got the best news we were praying and hoping to hear for the last 2 years, my mother’s Permanent Residency is approved!!! We are very grateful to God and thankful to Robert and his team! We highly recommend Milla and Associates!!! Sincerely, Anna and Dan H.”
