Who knows more about the work of an F-1 Designated School Official (DSO) than an experienced DSO? Our consultants are active DSOs and PDSOs pulled from the ranks of some of the largest university F-1 programs in the country. Overseen by an experienced immigration attorney, they provide quality immigration support to your institution for a fraction of the cost of traditional legal counsel.

In the Classroom

Whether your J-1 program is designated for private sector or academic categories, we have the expertise available to support you. Currently active AROs and ROs from high-volume J programs serve as consultants under the guidance of an accomplished immigration attorney. We provide management reviews in compliance with Department of State regulations. Our consulting model allows us to control your costs while delivering high-quality immigration advice.

The Trump Administration has ordered the Departments of Homeland Security, Justice, and Labor to significantly increase site visits and audits of H-1B employers. These audits will expand to include other categories – F-1, TN, and L-1 categories to name a few. We can help you to build an internal compliance plan to assure proper documentation and ongoing oversight and compliance checks are well managed.

Magnifying Glass

Through increasingly complex regulations and policy, the process of seeking green cards for your employees has become an ordeal filled with potential pitfalls. We can help your internal process to best fit the needs of your external immigration counsel or assure that your internal team is following the right course.
