Chicago Employment-Based Immigration Attorneys
Legal Assistance for People Who Wish to Work in the United States
Green cards are one of the most common methods of employment-based immigration and are among the best options for an immigrant seeking to stay in the United States for an extended period. One of the most common ways to obtain a green card is through previous success in applying for other work-based visas. Strategies to apply for a green card are a core specialization of the team at Ray Law International. Many successful applications over decades of practice will bolster that claim.
While being a common steppingstone, successfully applying for an employment-based visa is still quite complicated and requires significant proactive planning. However, depending on your skill level and profession, the process can be significantly simplified with the help of lawyers. When considering applying for a work visa, you will need to prepare a labor certification and petition. Your prospective employer will first need to complete the labor application and certification, and only then will you be able to file your “Immigrant Petition for Alien Worker” form.
Once the preliminary documents have been filed, you will determine which preference category you will fall under (E1-E5). The application process for each category will be varied. The most efficient strategy at this stage in your immigration journey is to enlist the help of Ray Law International and allow our attorneys to guide you to the category that best fits your situation.
