I-360 Approved for Taiwanese Minister in Ann Arbor

Client: A Church in Ann Arbor, Michigan
Client’s Country of Origin: Taiwan
Case Type: I-360 Petition for an Alien to be Classified as a Special Immigrant
Date of Application: April 6, 2010
Date of Approval: July 13, 2010

Background:
After five years of service, a church in Ann Arbor, Michigan wished to retain a capable minister for the long run. The church retained Herman Legal Group to secure an immigration status for its choice religious worker from Taiwan.

Challenge:
Application of an immigration status requires long-term planning and meticulous evidence gathering. From the start, a serious applicant or beneficiary should consider consulting a reliable attorney. After all, this application package asks for more than religious worker status application. Please remember, reviewers of faith-related status applications read with greater scrutiny. Professional assistance, in most cases, is indispensable. Our Michigan immigration lawyer is ready to be at your service.

Action:
Herman Legal Group helped our client prove that:

  1. The minister had been a member of the denomination for two years.
  2. The church or religious organization was a bona fide religious organization.
  3. The church or religious organization had sufficient resources to compensate the religious workers’ service.

Result:
After one request of evidence, our client’s case was approved in two and a half months.
