Immigration Case Results
National Interest Waiver Case
Dr. XX has expertise in a very narrow and complex scientific field. While his original research required a great amount of technical skill and experience, the positive impact it would have on the United States was indirect and challenging to explain. Dr. XX sought the advice and counsel of the immigration attorneys at MT Law LLC for guidance on how he could immigrate to the United States based on his research and work. Unfortunately, Dr. XX’s current employer could not sponsor his immigration petition, so Dr. XX had to apply himself. Dr. XX had to submit his immigration petition quickly in order to not lose permanent residency in a different country. The immigration attorneys at MT Law advised him that with their assistance he could show USCIS that his research served the national interest of the United States, was in an area of substantial intrinsic merit, and could not be delayed by the labor certification process, thereby providing him and his family eligibility to apply for their green cards. The immigration attorneys at MT Law assisted Dr. XX in identifying the best references for his National Interest Waiver Petition and took the time to assist Dr. XX in making these reference letters very strong. The immigration attorneys at MT Law made the connection between Dr. XX’s work and the welfare of U.S. residents very clear in these reference letters and in the Petition Letter the immigration attorneys drafted to show why Dr. XX was eligible for a National Interest Waiver under the immigration law and regulations. To make the entire petition as strong as possible, the immigration attorneys at MT Law also researched relevant statistics, findings and up-to-date information that supported the importance of Dr. XX’s work. By taking some additional time in preparing the National Interest Waiver Petition to make sure the petition was as strong as possible prior to being submitted to USCIS, the immigration attorneys at MT Law saved Dr. XX a great deal of time by avoiding a Request for Evidence and the often-lengthy USCIS processing times. The National Interest Waiver Petition submitted was so strong that USCIS approved it in just three weeks, instead of the six months the USCIS normally takes to make determinations on National Interest Waiver Petitions. Dr. XX and his family are now permanent residents of the United States and are very grateful to MT Law for ensuring they had a smooth immigration process.
H-1B Visa Case
Joe Smith recently graduated with a Master of Science in management from a local university. Unfortunately, after searching for management positions throughout the United States, Mr. Smith could not find an employer to sponsor an H-1B Petition on his behalf for a management position. The only H-1B sponsor Mr. Smith could find was a new, small local company he had interned for while still a student. Both the owner of this new, small local company and Mr. Smith sought the advice and counsel of the immigration attorneys at MT Law to see if the attorneys thought an H-1B Petition sponsored by the new and small company could be approved. MT Law’s immigration attorneys saw several potential issues with this H-1B Petition: 1. The sponsoring employer was a new and small company which was still developing its business plan and business operation and had a limited amount of capital; 2. The sponsoring employer could not afford to pay the prevailing wage required by the Department of Labor for management positions to Mr. Smith, so the employment position would have to be a nonmanagement position; 3. Mr. Smith’s degree and experience, which must relate to the employment position in H-1B Petitions, was in management. MT Law’s immigration attorneys took the time to meet with both owner and Mr. Smith to discuss options, reviewing all of Mr. Smith’s academic transcripts to think of nonmanagement positions for which he was qualified, which related to his management degree and which met the legal standards of H-1B employment. Finally, MT Law’s immigration attorney shared how they could present the case to USCIS to show why Mr. Smith was eligible for an H-1B Visa. The owner and Mr. Smith agreed. Even though this complicated H-1B Petition received a Request for Evidence from USCIS, MT Law’s immigration attorneys took the time to develop a strong response to USCIS, and the H-1B Petition was quickly approved after MT Law submitted the response to the Request for Evidence. Mr. Smith is now able to remain and work in the United States with an H-1B Visa.

Taxation Case Results
Individual Tax Case
There are two classifications of people that the U.S. uses in regards to taxes: tax residents and non-tax residents. All citizens and green card holders are considered to be tax residents. U.S. tax residents must report their worldwide income to the IRS and pay taxes by April 15 every year.
Mr. Zhang is a new immigrant and holds a green card. He wonders how his immigration and taxes will work. CPA and accountants at MT Law told Mr. Zhang that as soon as he acquires a green card, his is automatically classified as a United States tax resident and must report all of his income, whether earned abroad or domestically. Like almost every other taxpayer in the United States, green card holders must file an IRS Form 1040 each year by April 15. If he fails to file United States taxes as a green card holder, he may hurt his chances of becoming a U.S. citizen. Additionally, if he intentionally does not file his taxes, he may also be guilty of a crime which could result in the loss of his green and his deportation.
