Employment-Related Immigration

Employment-based immigration, where employers petition the court on behalf of workers or where individuals with extraordinary skills petition the court themselves, can be procedurally complicated and technically cumbersome. Only those individuals who can successfully demonstrate that they are qualified based on their skills, work experience, and education will be successful in their attempts to obtain employment-related visas.

The Immigration Law Center provides professional advice and representation for employment-related immigration matters, helping each petitioner put his or her best foot forward in the application process.

  • H1B: Specialty occupations

Skilled Assistance and Advice for a Complex Process

Choosing the right option isn’t always easy or intuitive. Generally, employment-based visas are sponsored by employers who want to secure employment in the U.S. for their workers. In certain cases, individuals with extraordinary abilities in education, business, science, the arts, or athletics may qualify to petition directly under the EB1-A category.

At the Immigration Law Center, we will help you evaluate which employment-based visa is appropriate for you or your employee. We’ll also help you prepare all necessary forms and supplemental documents to petition for an employment-based visa.
