Working in the United States is not just a path to prosperity, it can also be a path to citizenship. There are a wide range of employment-based immigration options that can make it possible for a foreign national to obtain U.S. permanent resident status based on his or her work. Permanent residents in this country have green cards, which offer many of the same perks associated with citizenship.
In order to achieve residency through employment, it is generally necessary for a U.S. employer to sponsor a foreign-national on a long-term basis. The foreign national will typically need to be working at a long-term position and the employer may be required to be approved by the United States Department of Labor (DOL) and/or by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), depending upon the circumstances.
Because the stakes are so high for both individuals and employers, it is important to have a Maryland work visa attorney involved. Employers can benefit from bringing in talent from anywhere in the world, while individuals can achieve their dream of becoming permanent residents with the help of the Miranda & Weisman.
