This BDV Solutions client experienced both an audit and an RFE during their process. While these random setbacks can delay your case, they are nothing to fear and are only random. This client’s case took a total of 31 months, even with both an audit and an RFE during their EB-3 process.

This person started working as a food prep employee in a well-regarded restaurant in the Southeast. They started as a prep cook, but due to their prior experience in the kitchen and hard work on the job, they quickly rose the ranks within the restaurant. Now, they are in a leadership role in the restaurant as the head pastry chef of the entire restaurant. Congrats to this individual in their success in their restaurant career!
