Avon Employment Immigration Attorneys

When you have to navigate the complex immigration system, be it in applying for temporary or permanent work visas, you need an experienced Avon, Colorado immigration attorney such as we have at Joseph & Hall, P.C. The complexity of immigration law is said to be only second to the tax code in understanding or applying the law and even lawyers who regularly practice immigration often get it wrong.

We have experienced Avon employment immigration attorneys who not only know and understand immigration law, but also know how to best utilize the law to obtain work visas for U.S. employers in a manner that is efficient and effective for both the employer and prospective employee.

What We Can Do for You

The first thing we do is to determine what type of visa you can get for your foreign workers, if you are an employer, or for yourself, if you are a foreign worker who wishes to come and work in the United States.

Employment visas are available in either temporary or permanent categories.

Temporary Employment Visa

Temporary employment visas are visas available for foreign-born workers who are not U.S. citizens or permanent residents (green card holders). There are several types of visas available under this category, but the most common are:

  • H-1B Specialty Occupation. This visa type ranks at the top among the most popular and most sought. The visa is available for foreign nationals who intend to work in specialty occupations, such as computer science or engineering. 
  • L-1 Intracompany Transferee. This is a visa category for foreign nationals working for a foreign entity who intend to come and work as transfer managers, executives, or employees with specialized knowledge for the entity’s parent, subsidiary, or branch office in the United States.
  • O-1 “Extraordinary Ability.” This is a visa available for foreign nationals who possess “extraordinary ability or achievement in the sciences, education, business or athletics.” In other words, the person seeking this visa is among the very best in their field of endeavor.

Permanent Employment Visas

For foreign nationals who wish to migrate to the United States through employment, USCIS makes available several different categories of immigrant or permanent visas which qualified foreign nationals can migrate under.

To obtain a permanent employment visa is the same thing as obtaining lawful permanent residency (green card holder) status in the United States.

This is done in three steps:

First, the employer seeking to hire a foreign national is typically required to obtain certification from the Department of Labor (DOL) stating that they are unable to find qualified American workers for the position.

Second, the employer is then required to petition the USCIS for the foreign worker after obtaining the DOL certification. In some cases, the foreign worker can petition for themselves without a need for an employer.

Third, once the visa petition is approved, the foreign worker applies for the Green Card.
