For Immigration Attorneys

We provide immigration attorneys with professional business plans, ranging from simple operations to complex and unique business ventures. We can also assist immigration attorneys with responses to RFEs, including business plans, feasibility studies, market research and detailed job duties. In addition, we provide impact analysis reports for EB-2/NIW petitions.

At Visa Business Plans, we tailor and customize our work to reflect clients’ businesses and goals. We are also aware that each immigration lawyer has his or her distinct approach when it comes to crafting a strategy. For this reason, we base our services on the strategy and focus of each attorney. At Visa Business Plans we strive for perfection and guarantee your satisfaction at all times.

We help immigration attorneys by:

  1. Saving you time. You won’t be spending your time fixing or editing our work. We are known for our attention to detail.
  2. Allowing you to handle more cases. By spending less time on reviewing and editing our work, you can take care of more cases.
  3. Handle cases faster. If your client can’t articulate his/her business model, we’ll make sure that the business plan clearly explains his or her endeavor. This will allow you to adopt and incorporate sections of our work into your petition letters and/or forms.
  4. Increase success rate. Immigration attorneys who use us indicate that their case approval rate increases as a result of our work, Our business plans and related documents are realistic from a business standpoint and meet the current shifting adjudication standards.

When working with Visa Business Plans, you can rest assured that our team will communicate any issues that we encounter upon reviewing a client’s information that can potentially jeopardize their visa approval. Our meticulous process and our attention to detail guarantees we leave no stone unturned when crafting a compelling and solid immigration business plan. Our ultimate goal is to help you win cases.

In addition, our team stays current in regard to regulations and ever-changing USCIS adjudication standards. When working on an immigration business plan, we carefully study the Adjudicator's Field Manual (AFM) as well as recent Administrative Appeals Office (AAO) decisions and Adjudication Policy Memoranda that may have an impact on the business plan we are creating for your client.

Part of our continuous training comes from one of Visa Business Plans’ most regarded services: the crafting of immigration business plans and related documents in response to RFEs. By closely tracking RFE trends, we continually update the content of our immigration business plans, making sure we take into consideration new USCIS requirements or expectations beforehand.

After having worked with over 500 attorneys nationwide, we are extremely proud of the reputation we have earned within the industry, based mainly on word of mouth. When we have the honor of being recommended by one attorney to another, our work is frequently described as thorough, accurate, consistent and reliable.
