Employment-based immigration visa categories generally have set caps, meaning that a limited number of petitions are processed in a given year, and there can be extensive backlogs. To accelerate your application process, or to avoid a costly backlog in your business, planning ahead is absolutely essential.
Serving All Your Employment-Based Immigration Needs
Whether you are an individual employee seeking employment-based entry into the United States, or an employer looking to sponsor a foreign national, our lawyers at Saenz-Rodriguez & Associates can help you.
We have the experience and commitment necessary to guide you through even the most complicated employment-based immigration procedures. Based in Dallas, Texas, we extend our legal services nationwide and internationally. Our employment-based immigration services include:
- Temporary (H, L, O, P, Q) and permanent (EB) employment visa applications. We help employees, employers, investors and entrepreneurs apply for and obtain required visas for employment-based immigration in the U.S. Our experienced lawyers will explain the various temporary and permanent work visas available, and can examine whether or not you are eligible.
- Filing PERM petitions with the U.S. Department of Labor. We assist employees with the labor certification process for permanent positions and seasonal employment. Our attorneys advise employers on pre-filing procedures, monitor the PERM process and assist in the subsequent acquisition of visas for employees.
- Filing Labor Condition Applications and H-1B petitions. We also assist employers with the Labor Condition Application (LCA) filing for H-1B employees. The H-1B visa allows employers to petition for and hire a foreign worker for a job requiring the specialized knowledge obtained through a university education. The initial application can be approved for up to three years.
- I-9 internal audits for employers. I-9 employer verification forms are important documents that must be properly maintained on behalf of every employee. Each year, the federal government conducts thousands of I-9 audits to verify that employers are complying with U.S. immigration laws. If you are a business owner and H-1B or L-1 petitioner, you could be selected for an audit by ICE with short notice. Our licensed immigration lawyers are familiar with I-9 and E-Verify compliance issues, and can save you hours of research and thousands of dollars in fines and penalties by auditing for errors and omissions.
