Our office can assist you with obtaining Employment-Based Green Cards and Work Visas in various preference categories and visa types (such as E-2 visas, L-1 visas, H1-B visas) based on educational background and related work experience. We have assisted many employers successfully sponsor employees to obtain work visas and legally work in the U.S.
Generally, in order to stay in the U.S. through employment, an employer must be willing to sponsor a prospective employee for a qualifying job position. The employer will retain our firm’s services in order to assist with their employee’s obtaining legal status to work. This goal can be completed any number of ways such as filing for an EB-1, EB-2, or EB-3 preference category visa. However, the first inquiry is whether the employer would like to hire the employee on a temporary or permanent basis. If permanent, the employment-based preference categories require the employee to have requisite skill set, work experience, and typically at least a Bachelor’s degree to qualify.
We have assisted employers with sponsoring a prospective employee for employment-based visas. If you are an employee seeking to obtain temporary work visa or permanent resident status through your employer please call us today with any questions about the process.
