Managing Partner Michael Wildes is pleased to announce that Wildes & Weinberg P.C. has secured O-1 visa classification on behalf of Juvani Richardson, a highly acclaimed international fashion model and former Mr. World Aruba.
Mr. Richardson’s extensive modeling career began with his winning the distinguished, national title of Mr. World Aruba in 2001, which seeks to identify “the world’s most desirable man.” The Mr. World Aruba competition is covered extensively in national press sources in Aruba, Bonaire, and Curacao and as a result of his win, Mr. Richardson was featured in numerous press articles and secured various appearances for fashion brands and magazines. Shortly thereafter, Mr. Richardson began traveling around the globe and vigorously building his portfolio, working in locales such as the Netherlands, Italy, and France. Mr. Richardson has appeared for major publications such as Squeeze Netherlands, Cosmopolitan Netherlands, and Wannahaves Netherlands. In a 2014 article, Xclusivo Magazine named Mr. Richardson “Fashion Personality of the Year.” Mr. Richardson has appeared in catalogs, presentations, and/or ad campaigns for major brands in various countries, including: Cartier (photographed by Peter Lippman), Courir, Samsung, Tommy Hilfiger Europe, La Redoute, Abercrombie & Fitch, American Vintage, Swarovksi, and Timberland, among others. These high profile assignments as a fashion model paved the way for Mr. Richardson’s O-1 approval, as an individual of extraordinary ability in the arts. We look forward to seeing his continued success in the U.S.!
In order to qualify for an O-1 visa which allows individuals of extraordinary ability in the arts, sciences, athletics, education or business to live and work in the United States, a foreign national must provide adequate documentation to demonstrate that he/she has sustained national or international acclaim in their field.
In addition, the individual must provide substantial evidence to prove that he/she meets 3 of the 6 evidence categories defined by statute, as well as a written advisory opinion from a labor union or relevant peer group. The O-1 visa applicant must also show that he/she has an offer of employment in the United States to work in his/her field of expertise (or several offers of employment from multiple sources, along with a third-party Agent to petition on the individual’s behalf and connect him/her to the multiple employers).
