Our firm assists employers, including corporations, universities, and research institutions in securing visas for employees. Employers come to our firm as return clients or referrals as we have continued our services for long-time clients, many for nearly 20 years. We are very experienced in L-1 visas (intracompany transfers), H-1B Visas, O-1 Visas, EB-1/EB-2/EB-3 Visas, PERM green card process, temporary work visas, TN/NAFTA visas, E-1/E-2 treaty trader/treaty investor visas, and E-3 Australian professional visas.
Permanent residency visas: Obtaining permanent residency based on employment is normally a three-part process:
First, you must file a PERM/Labor Certification Application with the USDOL. Second, you must file an I-140, EB-2 petition (Professional/Advanced Degree, Extraordinary Ability, NIW/National Interest Waiver) or EB-3 petition (Professional/Bachelor’s Degree and Skilled Workers) with the USCIS. And third, you must apply for an adjustment of status (I-485) with the USCIS.
However, if you qualify for an EB-1 (Extraordinary Ability, Outstanding Professors and Researchers, and Multinational Executive and Manager Transferees) or EB-2 (NIW) you are able to skip step one and move directly to steps 2 and 3.
The employment-based process is extremely complex and demanding. The Law Office of Mark Galvin has successfully handled hundreds of these cases from start-to-finish and, as a result of our extensive hands-on practical experience, we will make the process requirements understandable and greatly improve your chances to achieve your immigrations goals and objectives.
Temporary employment visas: There are numerous temporary work visa classifications and require an employer or other sponsor (e.g., H, L, E, O, P and TN/NAFTA). Some work visas enable a spouse to obtain a temporary work permit (L and E). For more information about obtaining a temporary work visa and securing employment in the U.S., please feel free to contact our firm directly.
