Employment Petitions

DO YOU QUALIFY
FOR A GREEN CARD

As part of our services for immigrants and their employers, we assist clients who seek a green card and permanent residence through their job.

Our services include employment-based petitions for H-1B visas, H-2A visas, H-2B visas, H-3 visas, and TN visas.

To obtain immigration benefits, the job sought by a client must qualify under certain employment preference categories.
