EMPLOYMENT-BASED PERMANENT RESIDENCY
WANT WORK-BASED PERMANENT RESIDENCY?
TALK TO OUR IMMIGRATION ATTORNEY IN ORLANDO FOR DEDICATED ADVOCACY!
According to the 2010 American Community Survey (ACS) conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau, approximately 13 percent – almost 40 million individuals – of the total U.S. population is comprised of foreign-born immigrants. Many of these men and women came to the United States in order to pursue career or economic opportunities available in this country.
Every fiscal year, the United States government offers a limited number of work-based immigrant visas – approximately 140,000. After obtaining a visa, you can then pursue your green card allowing you to work and live in the country for as long as you wish. If you are seeking work-based permanent residency, an Orlando immigration attorney from the Fisher Legal Group may be able to help.
ADVICE FOR EMPLOYERS
The first step for a U.S. employer who wishes to sponsor a foreign national for an employment-based green card is to obtain an alien labor certification. You must send the completed application for certification to the Department of Labor upon completing it, unless your employee meets certain specific exemptions, in which case labor certification will not be required. These exemptions include foreign nationals who are:
- Employees of first preference – individuals who are extraordinarily gifted in a field of art, science, athletics, business, or education
- Employees of second preference – professional employees with advanced education levels and / or who are considered “exceptionally” gifted in the arts, sciences, athletics, education, or business
- Employees of third preference – workers with bachelor’s degrees and / or who can be considered “skilled” in their field
- Employees of fourth preference – special exceptions, including religious workers in any denomination, broadcasts, and some children
- Employees of fifth preference – investors who will invest between $500,000 and $1 million in businesses and job creation in the U.S.
