The United States is a nation of immigrants, and we continue to rely on the talents and industry of foreign-born workers for the innovation, research and development, and essential labor that helps our economy to thrive. If you are seeking permanent resident status in the United States based on an offer of employment, or if you are an employer wishing to sponsor a foreign worker, Paul J. Alvarado PC can guide you through the process, which involves a complex set of regulations and procedures administered by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). I will be with you at each step, offering the advice and advocacy you need to accomplish your goals.
Employment-based immigration is meant to benefit the immigrant, the employer and U.S. interests. U.S. policy attempts to balance the competing needs of attracting essential workers and ensuring that qualified American workers are not disadvantaged. The hopeful immigrant must craft a petition with that understanding. As an experienced Immigration attorney, I understand how the immigration system works and what elements are essential to a successful petition, which gives you an advantage in obtaining the job you seek.
I offer legal assistance with labor certification and petition filing, the first steps in the process that enables foreign nationals to work in the United States. My firm advises clients on required documentation, medical evaluations, and visa interviews in helping them to obtain employment-based immigrant visas, which are divided by categories of preference:
I also assist foreign workers seeking temporary jobs by helping employers to file temporary (nonimmigrant) employment petitions with USCIS.
Misstatements on a petition can delay or derail your chance to work here, so it is important to seek guidance from an experienced immigration attorney. If you are a business owner seeking to fill a specific position or a foreign national seeking to advance your career in the United States, I offer comprehensive assistance throughout the employment-based immigration process.
