Miller Mayer recently received approval for an O-1 petition renewal for a researcher and author of extraordinary ability only 38 days after filing. Miller Mayer successfully proved to the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services that our client, an expert in non-profit fundraising, is clearly an individual of extraordinary ability. Through the client’s major original research contributions to the field of fundraising, authorship of significant books and articles in prestigious professional journals, and employment in organizations having a distinguished reputation, Miller Mayer was able to craft a winning case. Miller Mayer also filed the original O-1 visa application. This renewal will allow our client to continue her work in the United States.

Timely filed visa renewal applications are of paramount concern to all visa holders, and having experienced immigration counsel on your side is essential to an approved renewal application, particularly in a visa category that requires a high standard of evidence like O-1 extraordinary ability visas.
