Employment-Based Immigration Lawyers Near Me
Although US immigration law allows American workers to obtain employment-based work visas for foreign workers, the requirements are often out of reach for many employers, and the process of obtaining these work visas is daunting for those who can meet those requirements. To have peace of mind and ensure that one seamlessly goes through the process of obtaining a work visa for a foreign worker, it is best to have the services of an experienced immigration lawyer, as we have at Minsky McCormick & Hallagan. We routinely help employers in the Chicago area get these employment visas for their prospective foreign workers.
What an Immigration Lawyer Can Do for You
There are many things an experienced immigration lawyer from Minsky McCormick & Hallagan can do for you, including the following:
- Consultation. Before tackling your employment immigration needs, we must first fully understand your situation. This is done at your initial consultation with us, where we ask questions, obtain information about your company or business, and answer any questions you may have. If you are an employer, we focus our consultation on your qualifications and immigration history and advise you on how to address any issues we may identify that we know could be problematic.
- Crafting a Solution. Once we have gathered all the information about your employment visa needs, we will craft and execute a plan to get the visa more suitable to your needs. These visas are available in either nonimmigrant or immigrant (permanent) categories. We will discuss this fully with you and help you make a good decision as to which of either of these two categories of visas you should pursue. Within the category, you have several options, and we will also advise you on what is better for you to pursue.
- Compliance. Once we have helped you file the necessary documents and evidence necessary to have an employment visa approved for you, and the visa is approved, there is more you will need to do during the foreign worker’s employment with you, especially if you have more than one foreign worker. This is called immigration law compliance, and it is something we do for our employer clients so they can focus on running their businesses.
If the foreign worker you seek to hire is outside the United States, then both you and the foreign worker must go through what is known as “consular processing.” At Minsky McCormick & Hallagan, we have experienced consular processing lawyers near you who can help you better understand the requirements for your employment visa and what is required for processing at the consulate where the foreign worker will apply for the employment visa. We will guide you through the process, including advising you on what documents you will need to have filed for processing without delay.
