Employment Immigration

One of the most frequently-utilized routes to immigration is through sponsorship by a US employer (or in some cases through self-sponsorship). There are a number of different categories that may be available. For most of these categories, there is a three-step process:

  • the employer obtains "labor certification" from the U.S. Department of Labor,
  • the employer obtains approval of a visa petition from the USCIS, and
  • the prospective employee adjusts to permanent resident status through the USCIS (if in the U.S.) or obtains an immigrant visa at a U.S. embassy or consulate overseas.

For other categories, the first step (labor certification) and/or the requirement of having an employer sponsor may be avoided; generally these categories are for more high-level positions or highly-qualified personnel.

Our services: We will advise the employer and prospective-employee on eligibility requirements; assist with the labor certification, petition, and green card/visa process; prepare the applications and petitions; file and monitor the case; and provide oversight and assistance throughout the process. We will help prepare for the adjustment of status interview or consular interview. In the case of the state-side adjustment of status interview, we will attend the interview with you, providing you counsel and representation at this sometimes stressful event.
