Employment Visa attorneys

Serving Clients in Texas, the United States & the World from Amarillo, Dallas & Lubbock

Many different types of immigrant and nonimmigrant visas exist for foreign nationals allowing them to work on a temporary or permanent basis in the U.S. These visas admit foreign workers with valuable skills into the U.S. who are sponsored by their employers. Most of the classifications of these types of employment-based visas are referred to by letters and numbers that fall under a section of the Immigration and Nationality Act. Many categories exist for both nonimmigrant temporary visa workers and permanent workers.

At Whittenburg Law Firm, we are well-versed in the procedures that must be followed to obtain an employment visa. Our team has decades of experience and is led by a Board Certified attorney in Immigration and Nationality Law.

Employer Nonimmigrant & Immigrant Visas

To come to the U.S. to work on a temporary basis, your employer must act as your sponsor and generally petition the USCIS (United States Citizenship and Immigration Services) on your behalf. Your spouse and children can also file a petition to come to the U.S. with you. 

For those who wish to become permanent workers in the U.S. based on their job skills, five employment-based immigrant visa preference categories have been established. Some of these categories require you to have an existing job offer from an employer who will act as your sponsor. In other categories,  your employer may need to obtain a labor certification from the U.S. Department of Labor first. 

Employment visa categories can range from those with extraordinary ability in various areas to individuals with advanced degrees, professionals, skilled workers, and other workers as well as “special immigrants” that include specific types of workers, and a final category reserved for investors who wish to invest a certain amount of money in a new U.S. company. 

The visa application for nonimmigrant temporary and immigrant permanent workers can be complicated with many steps. Our employment visa attorneys can ensure that the process is handled with diligence and care to avoid more complications, delays, or denials. Our team is here to ensure that your case is handled with the utmost professionalism in search of favorable results.
