Immigration Lawyers in Houston
Helping Foreign Nationals With Employment Visas
Are you seeking work in the U.S.? Do you currently work here and need an employment visa? You can't afford to cut corners with immigration matters.
Approximately 140,000 employment-based immigrant visas are available annually for residents of foreign countries. Pursuing work temporarily or permanently in the United States first requires permission from the government. That step represents the first of many where the help of an immigration lawyer can make a difference.
The Need For Experience When Applying For A Work Visa
At Kennard Law, P.C., our immigration attorneys understand the challenges foreign nationals face when applying for visas. For those new to America, working in the U.S. represents a long-term goal. We will help you navigate this complex process, starting with the initial application to the issuance of a visa.
Our employee rights and immigration practice focuses on the following preference-based visa categories:
EB-1: Priority workers: Professionals recognized for their skills and abilities in their chosen field
EB-2: Professionals with advanced degrees or exceptional ability: Foreign nationals who possess a combination of an advanced degree – or equivalent – and five years of experience
EB-3: Skilled/professional workers: Workers and professionals, along with capable unskilled workers specifically required to have labor certification and a permanent, full-time job offer
EB-4: Special immigrants: Religious workers, broadcasters, doctors, and Iraqis who have assisted the U.S.
EB-5: Immigrant investors: Entrepreneurs investing in a new commercial venture that generates or preserves at least 10 full-time jobs.
Adjustment of status/green card: Foreign workers already in the country under a valid temporary visa who apply for permanent resident status
