Temporary Work Visas

If you are seeking to temporarily enter the United States (for meetings, a job, a specialized occupation, or a training, for example) an immigration lawyer can help you identify and apply for the right temporary work visa for your unique situation.

Different temporary work visas are suited to specific business situations. An experienced immigration lawyer will help you identify the right temporary work visa for you. For instance, for a brief business visit, a B1 visa will be suitable, while longer stays may require one of a variety of employment-based visas. 

H1B and E1 and E2 visas are very popular among entrepreneurs and SMBs, but as a result, applications are very competitive. Take care to begin working with an immigration lawyer early on to ensure that you submit all necessary documentation well before the deadline. 

It is advisable to use a lawyer whenever you're applying for a visa. Navigating complex USCIS requirements can be a major challenge. Work with an immigration lawyer that can give you advice on your unique temporary work visa needs, and you can be sure that the process will run smoothly. 

Permanent Residence

In order to receive authorization to live and work permanently in the United States, you will need to work with an immigration lawyer to secure an employment-based visa, a family-based immigrant visa, or a Green Card. 

Applications for permanent residence through a job opportunity or a family member have different requirements. An immigration lawyer can assess your situation and help you provide the necessary supporting documents for either type of visa.

Depending on your specific background and the job opportunity bringing you to the U.S., one of several EB visas may be right for you.

You may also be eligible to apply for a Green Card through a family member or marriage, as well as through your employer’s sponsorship. Under special circumstances, you may also be eligible to file individually.
