Border Issues Resolved with Assistance from Berardi Immigration Law

Border Issues Resolved with Assistance from Berardi Immigration Law

Following are highlights from Berardi Immigration Law’s border work during the past week:

• Berardi Immigration Law’s managing partner, Rosanna Berardi, appeared at the Peace Bridge to present an L-1A application on behalf of a client who had reached his seven-year cap. Under the regulations, L-1A status and L-1B status is capped at seven- and five-year periods, respectively. This means an individual who holds L-1A status for a consecutive seven-year period must depart the U.S. and remain abroad for at least one year before he or she is eligible to apply for L-1 status again. There is, however, a caveat to this rule: If that individual has spent less than 183 days in the U.S., he or she may be eligible for additional time in L-1 status.
