The immigration lawyers at Richards and Jurusik Immigration Law have more than 20 years of combined experience in US immigration matters, including obtaining temporary work visas and US permanent resident status (green cards) for workers.

Temporary Work Visas

In order to work legally in the United States, you must first obtain work authorization. The United States has several different nonimmigrant visa classifications for temporary workers, through which the spouse and children who qualify as dependents are also able to obtain dependant visas.

Green Cards through Employment

A permanent resident is someone who has been granted authorization to live and work in the United States on a permanent basis. As proof of that status, a person is granted a permanent resident card, commonly called a “green card.”
