Immigration Issues/EB-1 Extraordinary Ability Green Card
I am a taekwondo master from South Korea. Last December, I applied for my green card through EB-1 Extraordinary ability in the field of athletics. I received my work permit in January. Two months ago, I left my job and I opened my own business (martial arts school). If my petition for my green card is denied, what are my options? Can I apply for a business visa and sponsor myself?
Congratulations on your new business. Your brief recitation of the facts does not enable me to give you a thorough report about your possible options if your I-140 were to be denied. The space in this forum is too limited to address all possible avenues for you to take. I would suggest that you consult the attorney who filed your EB-1 and I-485 to give you some advice or consult with another attorney. This way they will be able to give you a proper path to follow if you receive bad news.
Note, it would be rare that your I-140 petition would be denied without the Service asking for a Request for Additional Evidence. Once you receive this you should respond quickly to the request.
