Immigration-related issues can be complex and the process lengthy and cumbersome. It is important to us that our clients understand the process. We work together with our clients to achieve their immigration goals and to make the process as smooth and expeditious as possible.
We assist U.S. citizens and permanent residents in petitioning for eligible family members (spouse, children, parents and siblings) to obtain permanent residency in the United States. We also provide counseling on immigration-related consequences of changes in family structure due to marriage, death or divorce.
Our firm works closely with employees and employers in formulating and implementing strategies to obtain and maintain legal employment authorization through both nonimmigrant visas and employment-based permanent residency. This allows companies to make informed choices in hiring and staffing and assists the employee in planning so that detrimental actions are avoided and helpful actions are pursued regarding future opportunities to work and remain in the United States.
In addition, we work directly with company managers and human resource professionals to insure compliance with the all applicable laws and regulations related to I-9 reporting and verification of employee work eligibility.
