Anticipating requests for evidence (RFEs) prior to filing an L-1B petition may reduce the likelihood of USCIS issuing an RFE, and prepare your client in the event he or she does receive an RFE. In addition, foreseeing potential issues at U.S. consular posts abroad and briefing your L-1B clients prior to visa interviews may decrease the potential for visa application denials. So, what are the latest RFE trends for L-1B petitions? What are consular posts focusing on? How do you provide a cohesive response to address USCIS's concerns? Our panelists address these and other questions, and provide you with strategies to help your clients successfully obtain L-1B status.
