Client: A Church in Cleveland, Ohio
Client’s Country of Origin: Taiwan
Case Type: I-131 Application for Religious Immigration
Date of Application: June 7, 2005
Date of Approval: August 4, 2005
A church of a newer Christian denomination retained Herman Legal Group to secure immigration status for its full-timer worker from Taiwan. We prepared this application for the minister because he had often traveled internationally on behalf of the church.
Obtaining immigration status for a minister should only be for the purpose of religious work. You have to prove that the church worker is conducting church work instead of any other work. In the process of evidence, an experienced immigration lawyer is very helpful and will save you a lot of time and effort during the process. Moreover, you have to prove that there has been no problem with the law in the past, or there are some waivable reasons for any past offenses. Our Cleveland immigration lawyers are ready to provide you with any legal service needed.
We helped our client prove that the minister:
- Was a national of another state.
- Had no problem with the law.
- Needed to conduct church business and to visit family overseas.
In less than three months, our client’s minister could travel internationally again.
