R-1 and I-360 NOID  |  Pastor

Mr. L works as a Pastor for a religious organization with various locations. After filing an R-1 amendment for a change in work location, and an I-360 for special immigrant status, Mr. L received an RFE, and then a NOID, for both applications. USCIS cited to a telephonic compliance review that resulted in discrepancies. We found that USCIS had conducted a single site visit at one of the three locations of the organization, without providing notice or properly communicating their expectations to our firm or the petitioner, after the visit. Both Mr. L and his employer were not at the location for the visit because of this lack of notice. In response, we provided several documents evidencing the organization's activities in each location while also addressing the problems with the current site visit process. We submitted the I-360 NOID response first, and as we were preparing the R-1 NOID response - before we even submitted it, we received an approval notice for both petitions based off the single I-360 response.
