US Green Card permission visa: Petition filling and visa application

travel_exploreImmigration & Residency


One of the most desired, and at the same time – most difficult to obtain, immigration benefits is the legal permanent resident (green card) status through employment. This route requires a U.S. employer to “sponsor” the immigrant. The three-step process includes 1) the initial labor certification; 2) immigrant visa availability; and, 3) immigrant visa adjudication (adjustment of status or consular processing). Depending on the skills and the occupation of the foreign national, this process can be relatively quick (as little as several months) or fairly long (up to several years) and is rife with technicalities and strict requirements. We advise companies wishing to sponsor a foreign national or foreign nationals to engage an experienced immigration attorney throughout this process.

Labor Certification
A permanent labor certification (now called PERM) issued by the Department of Labor (DOL) allows an employer to hire a foreign worker to work permanently in the United States.

Immigrant Visa Petition
While in some cases a Labor Certification (stage 1) may not be required, generally an employer will file the I-140 Immigrant Visa Petition with USCIS on behalf of the sponsored employee based upon an approved Labor Certification/ PERM with the DOL.

Adjustment of Status Application/ Consular Processing
Adjustment of status is usually the final step of an immigrant petition process which allows certain individuals who are already in the United States to apply for and obtain lawful permanent resident (“green card”) status without having to travel abroad and apply at a U.S. consulate.

Note: The consultation call is 30 minutes long. This fee is deducted from the full-service range if you hire it.
