Employment Based Visas in Lawrenceville
Every year, a certain number of employment based immigrant visas are made available, to be distributed across five different categories. A Lawrenceville immigration lawyer serving Gwinnett County can help to determine which would be most suitable for your purposes and guide your entire application process. The five categories, in order of the preference they are given, are:
- Priority workers. These include persons with extraordinary ability, outstanding professors and researchers, and multinational managers or executives.
- Persons holding advanced degrees and persons of exceptional ability.
- Skilled workers, professionals and unskilled workers.
- Certain special immigrants. Subgroups of this category include, for example, ministers of religion, certain relatives of NATO-6 civilian employees, persons recruited outside the United States to serve in the U.S. armed forces.
- Immigrant investors.
Immigration Lawyer: Employment Visas
There are very specific requirements regarding who may qualify under these visa categories. At Law Office of Robert L. Booker, we can use our intimate familiarity with the laws surrounding these visas to seek ways in which you may qualify. Some of these categories require a prospective employer to file a petition on your behalf to obtain labor certification from the Department of Labor. We can liaise with all concerned to ensure this is done correctly to maximize the likelihood of approval. Once approved, your case will go to the National Visa Processing center. From there, specific application forms, civil documents and medical tests are needed to process your case. We can coordinate with the National Visa Processing Center on your behalf to ensure all timelines are met and the required information is submitted correctly. We can also assist family members who qualify to accompany you with this process.
