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.

  • 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.”

  • Robert has been absolutely amazing!

    “Robert has been absolutely amazing! My husband and I used his services for our marriage based green card application. Our case was not complicated, but we are so happy we hired Robert. He was nothing but helpful and would always make time to schedule a meeting with us or jump on the phone to guide us through the process and answer our (many) questions. On top of him being friendly and approachable, he knows the immigration law inside out. We can not recommend Robert enough to anyone applying for a marriage based permanent residence.”

  • Mr. Robert is an amazing, humble and extremely knowledgeable ...

    “Words just cannot express how grateful I'm to Robert Milla for all his efforts and dedication towards my case. It was a very complicated case and I had consulted a lot of attorneys in Chicago who were just not that confident in proceeding with my case. Then I met Robert and his knowledge and determination showed me light when I was almost about to give up. He was confident and Knowledgeable and did a meticulous job with my case especially when ​I had very less time to apply. I'm so relieved and happy that I got my green card within a week of the interview. Mr Robert is an amazing, humble and extremely knowledgeable attorney. He gives a lot of attention to detail. I'll never forget that he helped me when I was most in need of help. It was easy to work with ​Robert and legal assistant Maria. They made the process very smooth and kept me informed throughout the process.​ ​I couldn't have asked for a more knowledgeable, friendly, and courteous attorney.​ ​I appreciate His genuineness and humbleness. I highly recommend him for all immigration needs and I will definitely use your services again in future.”
