The success or failure of an immigration petition or application can entirely depend on the experience and skills of an immigration lawyer that you hire. At Minsky, McCormick & Hallagan, P.C., we have been handling immigration cases in the Chicago and Elgin areas since 1975. We take pride in being leading U.S. immigration lawyers and welcome the opportunity to have you as one of our satisfied clients.
When you call us or come by our offices, one of the first things we do is to find out as much as possible about what your immigration needs are. We then craft a plan to address the needs and answer any questions you may have. It is important to note U.S. immigration law is complex, and often, the success or failure of a case – even when handled by an experienced immigration attorney – may turn on how the information is packaged and presented to the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), something we routinely handle to the satisfaction of our clients.
We are a full-service immigration law firm, which means we handle all cases that involve U.S. immigration law. Our experienced Elgin immigration lawyers handle some of the most complicated cases and have the necessary skills to get the outcomes our clients deserve.
U.S. immigration law allows employers to recruit and hire foreign workers if certain conditions are met. For those employers who have a need to hire foreign workers, we help them make decisions as to the best immigration visas to pursue and help in obtaining those visas.
These employment-based visas come in two general categories: permanent and temporary. For permanent employment visas, the employer is allowed to petition the USCIS to obtain approval to hire a foreign worker or workers to come and work for them on a permanent work visa.
The permanent work visa is, in fact, a green card the foreign worker is given once certain conditions are met. At Minsky, McCormick & Hallagan, P.C., our experienced immigration attorneys work closely with the employer to make sure these requirements are both met and complied with.
A big part of the immigration system is processing visas for family members of United States citizens and those of lawful permanent residents (Green Card holders). Other visa categories also allow qualified family members to accompany or join the primary visa holders.
Not all family members qualify to get a visa based on their relationship with a U.S. citizen or Green Card holder. However, for those who do qualify, such as spouses, children, and siblings of a certain age, the U.S. citizen or permanent resident can petition to have the qualifying family members obtain their own green cards based on the family relationship.
These are the two most common ways non-citizens migrate to the United States, but there is a range of other visa categories which allow non-citizens to come to America. If you are contemplating hiring a foreign worker or have a family member you wish to sponsor, contact our office today and request a consultation.
