Green Cards – Companies and Employers

If you want to easily recruit and retain foreign talent in your company for a specialized position, or if you represent an employer and want to minimize your hassles in obtaining green cards for your employees and save precious time and resources, you are at the right place.

We know that recruiting and retaining global talent is critical to maintaining your company’s competitive edge. We also know that you do not know enough about the immigration process and want to hire someone you can trust to do it right. At Weinstock Immigration Lawyers, we enable companies to secure their global talent by providing them with the best legal counsel for their immigration needs. We represent employers of variable sizes throughout several key industries. We have represented multi-national corporations, universities, hospitals and small businesses alike. We make it possible for our clients to secure work visas for their employees and their employees’ families.

Although more than 40% of immigration cases are delayed or denied, we have one of the highest approval rates in the industry, with only about 1% of our employment permanent residency cases that have been denied by USCIS*. Employment-based sponsorship of green cards for global talent is a complicated process that requires highly trained and knowledgeable legal counsel. With more than 35 years of combined immigration law experience, we are the experts in this area. We have a fantastic track record in obtaining the best results for our clients, and you can depend on us.

What Are Green Cards?

Permanent Residency, often referred to as a “green card”, is a status conferred on certain foreign nationals that allows them to live in the United States indefinitely.  It is “permanent” in the sense that the status does not expire and can only be taken away through a formal process, based on certain types of affirmative misconduct such as immigration fraud or serious criminal convictions.

Permanent residency usually is granted based on a petition filed by an employer seeking to hire the foreign national to perform a specific job on a permanent basis. All employment-based green card cases must go through USCIS at some point, with an EB-1, EB-2 or EB-3 petition, and in most cases also the U.S. Department of Labor, in a process called a labor certification or PERM. Permanent residency also entitles a foreign national to work in the United States and to travel in and out of the United States without seeking additional visas or permissions.

How Our Immigration Lawyers Can Help You

Our immigration lawyers will help you prepare for the future and advise you on the best ways to meet your long term goals for your professional team. We always take into account our clients’ short-term and long-term goals when advising them on their business immigration needs. Successfully achieving green card status for employees is highly nuanced with very specific provisions. Filing for the wrong category can greatly impact a foreign national’s ability to work and stay here, and may cause years of delays or ineligibility. Filing incomplete applications or filing with errors or inconsistencies will get the application delayed or denied. This can, in turn, affect your bottom line. It is therefore important for you and your team to have a good immigration lawyer on your team that will create customized immigration solutions to best suit your needs.
