Client’s P-1 Petition granted on appeal

Published: Sep 8, 2006 Source: My Source
We successfully reversed a denial of a client’s petition for P-1S “essential support personnel” nonimmigrant status on appeal.  The client, a successful professional minor league hockey team under affiliation with a major league pro hockey team, petitioned to secure P-1S status for its assistant coach to help in developing major league players assigned to the team.  The initial petition was denied.  We filed an appeal with the “Administrative Appeals Office” of USCIS to challenge the denial, and within two weeks of filing the appeal the denial was reopened by USCIS and the team’s petition was approved in short order.
