Many companies and foreign nationals benefit from the employment immigration system in the United States.
You might be a company that needs extra seasonal help or wants to recruit talented employees from different countries. You might be someone seeking temporary employment in the U.S. to earn additional income or someone with prestige in an industry seeking a top position at a U.S. corporation or institution. In either situation, you must follow strict procedures and meet requirements to successfully complete the employment immigration process.
When it comes to interacting with the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) or other government agencies that deal with U.S. immigration law, it is recommended that you consult an experienced immigration lawyer. At Joseph & Hall, P.C., we have immigration attorneys who help clients in the Aurora area to navigate the complex immigration system, and we are here to help you, too.
Our immigration lawyers handle every aspect of the employment-based immigration process.
To obtain an employment-based Green Card, your prospective employer must first obtain a labor certification approval from the Department of Labor (DOL) if the job is one for which labor certification is required. When the certification is obtained, the employer can file Form I-40 Petition for Alien Workers with the USCIS.
If the I-140 petition is approved, then the foreign worker can apply for a Green Card. Processing of their Green Card and how long it would take depends on under what subcategory of the employment-based immigration they apply under.
When dealing with employment immigration matters, it is highly advisable to seek professional legal help. Employment immigration involves complex laws, regulations, and procedures that require knowledge and experience. Here are some reasons why professional legal assistance is crucial:
Guidance – Employment immigration lawyers possess in-depth knowledge and understanding of immigration laws and regulations. They can provide accurate and up-to-date guidance on visa options, eligibility requirements, and application procedures, ensuring you make informed decisions.
Application Preparation – Applying for employment-based visas or green cards involves extensive paperwork and documentation. A skilled attorney can help gather and organize the necessary documents, complete forms accurately, and ensure compliance with filing requirements, increasing the chances of a successful application.
Legal Strategy – Each employment immigration case is unique, and a qualified attorney can develop a tailored legal strategy based on your specific circumstances. They can assess the strengths and weaknesses of your case, anticipate potential challenges, and devise strategies to overcome obstacles effectively.
Compliance and Risk Mitigation – Immigration laws are subject to frequent changes and non-compliance can lead to severe consequences. An experienced attorney can help you navigate the complex web of regulations, ensure compliance with employment immigration laws, and mitigate any potential risks or penalties.
Professional legal help is essential in employment immigration matters to ensure that your rights and interests are protected, and that you are in compliance with applicable laws. An experienced employment immigration attorney can provide the knowledge and guidance necessary to navigate the complexities of the process and maximize your chances of success.
