Services Z&A Provides

The O visa program is targeted towardaliens of extraordinary ability or achievement in the sciences, arts, business and education. The O application not only involves a great deal of documentation to demonstrate the applicant's exceptional ability in their field, but also touches on many legal issues in order to fully and appropriately understand the requirements of an O-1 petition as set by the law. Therefore, if your O-1 petition is prepared with the help of an experienced attorney, your chances for success are greater. Z&A proudly offers the following quality services related to O-1 applications:

Z&A experienced attorney(s) will first evaluate your situation and the options for your potential petition. You may send us your resume either by email or by fax at 713-771-8368. After reviewing your resume, we will give initial advice on whether O-1 status is applicable in your situation. If not, we will advise you on which options are best for you, such as J waiver application or H-1B.

After you retain us for your O-1 case, we will:

  1. Effectively communicate with your (potential) employer to facilitate their sponsorship for your petition;

  2. Provide sample recommendation letters applicable to your field, which can be used by you as a reference;

  3. Review and edit your letters of recommendation to ensure that they include the appropriate language and meet the O-1 requirements;

  4. Help your employer draft the job offer letter detailing the position, the project, and your qualifications;

  5. Help you obtain the affidavit or advisory opinion with an appropriate peer group or independent consulting organization regarding the nature of the work you will be doing;

  6. Guide you as you collect all documentary evidence needed for your O-1 petition;

  7. Organize all the required documentation for your O-1 petition, including the signed recommendation letters;

  8. Draft the petition letter on your behalf;

  9. Submit the completed petition materials to the proper USCIS Center via registered mail; and

  10. Contact the USCIS for the status inquiry of your pending case.

If the USCIS makes a request for additional evidence on your pending case, we will respond and submit the additional documentation required. As soon as the USCIS makes a final decision on your O-1 application, we will inform you of the result.
