U.S. immigration policy and procedures
Employment-based immigration benefits the prospective immigrant, the employer and U.S. interests. In general, U.S. immigration policy attempts to balance the competing interests of employers who need to recruit essential workers and foreign talent with the interests of qualified U.S. workers whose wages and employment conditions should not be adversely impacted by the influx of foreign labor. Such underlying policy concerns shape the immigration laws and procedures that affects a visa petition submitted by a prospective immigrant. Our law firm understand how the immigration bureaucracy works and how to craft a successful visa petition.
Defense against immigration violations
Penalties for violating immigration laws include heavy fines for employers and bans from entering the United States for individuals charged with misrepresenting material facts. Our law firm can offer assistance in mounting a successful defense, negotiating a settlement and defending vigorously and appropriately against such charges.
