Employment Based Immigration

The United States makes approximately 140,000 employment-based immigrant visas available each fiscal year for aliens as well as for their spouses and children who wish to immigrate to the United States based on their occupational skills. An individual needs the right combination of skills, education, and/or work experience to qualify for an employment-based immigrant visa. This employment-based visa can lead to an employment-based green card.

We, at Reiner & Pleva, PLLC have extensive experience helping both businesses and private individuals negotiate the employment-based immigration path. For example, we have helped American employers secure nonimmigrant employment-based visas E-1, E-2, E-3, H-1B (including the additional quota for beneficiaries holding master's degrees from American colleges and universities, and for cap-exempt employers/beneficiaries), H-2A, H-2B, H-3, L-1A, L-1B, O-1, P-1, P-2, P-3, and R-1 nonimmigrant visas for foreign workers. We have also helped American employers negotiate the PERM (Permanent Labor Certification) and immigrant visa (Form I-140, Immigrant Petition for an Alien Worker) processes so that their clients may offer permanent employment to multinational managers or executives (EB-1C), outstanding professors and researchers, skilled workers (EB-3), and foreign workers with advanced degrees or exceptional ability (EB-2).
