In this case, our client, a citizen of Canada, had been in the U.S. under TN visa status as a Graphic Designer since 2007. When it came time to renew her TN status, our client decided she wanted to extend her TN status by mail rather than by returning to the U.S. border.
Our office prepared the I-129 petition paperwork requesting the TN visa status extension, and packaged the petition with all the required supporting documents (e.g. copy of I-94, paystubs). We filed the I-129 petition with USCIS’ Vermont Service Center on March 14, 2012. The petition was approved about 2-months later on May 18, 2012.
