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.

We can help you from start to finish, beginning with getting the right immigration petitions and filing them in a timely manner.

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.

    “Robert is very knowledgeable, kind & approachable as well as his staff. From Sylvia to Daniel, they’re always very nice in answering all my concerns. I had no trouble with my USCIS interview because their team made sure that me & my husband were prepared. Robert was highly recommended to me by a Lawyer i know. I’m glad i took her advice and went to seek Roberts assistance regarding my marriage based green card. Got my approval the same day after the interview. I will be getting his assistance with all my immigration concerns including my childrens petition. I highly recommend Robert! He’s the best! 😊👍🏻”

  • Excellent immigration lawyer!

    “I hired attorney Robert Milla to file for my papers here in Chicago. I waited for over 20 years to apply for my green card. Overall, the service was outstanding. He took the time to answer all my questions, he was honest about what to expect and there were no hidden charges for his services. I paid one flat fee for his services and I did not have to pay everything upfront. I recommend him for immigration services and I have recommended one friend and my cousin and they both had the same experience that I did. Result: Application for adjustment of status to permanent resident (“green card”) approved”

  • The Best Lawyer

    “I would like to take this opportunity to thank Atty. Robert Milla, Ms. Sylvia and the rest of the staff of Milla Law firm. The team was of great help in processing my papers and documents, from the application of my Green Card until the application of my U.S. Citizenship. Not to mention how patient Mr. Robert Milla was when answering my questions and paying attention into knotting all the loose ends to make sure that everything goes well for me to achieve the outcome I was aiming for. I would definitely recommend Robert Milla Law Firm not only for his compassion and empathetic demeanor in relating to his clients but also because of his undeniable skills in handling cases in immigration. His assistants are also commendable for being so helpful and attentive. Until now I'm still overwhelmed that I immediately got the schedule of my Oath Taking Ceremony few days after my interview for the application of my U.S. Citizenship. I have no regrets in seeking legal help and advice from this office, and I will definitely hire their service for the petition of my family.”

  • Great attorney and a great human being!

    “Robert is one of the best and most trustworthy attorneys I have ever met or worked with. What separates Robert from others is his commitment to winning and his willingness to fight for you, regardless of how hard it might get or how long it takes. He does not use his law degree or the severity of a case to intimidate you or, unlike some, he does not use fear as a way of getting you to hire him. Instead, you can sense from the get-go that he does this as a matter of calling: he wants to help people win their immigration battles because it is the right thing to do. He is down to earth, relatable, yet very effective. His ability to use language seamlessly to drive a point home was quite remarkable and refreshing to see. He is tactful, but does not shy away from stating the facts aggressively and in a manner that makes the arguments stick. This is not something many attorneys know how to do. He was also very responsive and very sensitive to avoid misunderstandings in any regard. He asked and listened to the feedback and was not focused on anything else but to get the job done--which is both rare and extraordinary. He was also very flexible with payments and the entire process. Robert is a down to earth, caring guy and a very, very competent attorney who will take care of you. We hope to work with him again in the future and would strongly recommend him to you, as well.”

  • 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.”

  • Successful case for marriage-based green card

    “Milla & Associates delivers an incredible quality of legal representation and it was an absolute pleasure to work with Robert Milla, Tatiana Alonso, and their team. My husband and I entrusted them with my adjustment of status and green card application. Our case was handled very efficiently, they answered our questions at every stage and kept us informed of the next steps and developments throughout the process. Not only that, Robert is highly experienced and has an incredible understanding of immigration law on top of being genuine, personable and transparent. It is really hard to be able to find a good attorney that genuinely cares about the case, he is trustworthy, and I can tell that he does his work with his heart. My adjustment of status/green card was approved within a week from the interview, and I received my conditional green card in the mail a few days after receiving the approval notice. Robert and his team definitely made the entire process seamless. I would strongly recommend Robert Milla for anyone who is looking for a great immigration attorney and to be put in the best position possible with obtaining a green card. Thank you, Robert, for making my husband and I feel at ease as we navigated through uncharted waters. We are so grateful for you!”
