In the competitive landscape of the United States job market, our client, a prominent specialty manufacturer, encountered a unique challenge when they urgently needed an experienced engineer to oversee their manufacturing facility. Despite their best efforts, they struggled to find a suitable US citizen candidate for the role. It was then that they identified a highly qualified foreign national who possessed the requisite skills and expertise for the position.
Our team at Richards and Jurusik Immigration Law stepped in to assist our client in addressing this staffing dilemma. We successfully guided them through the intricate process of securing an H1B visa for their prospective employee, ultimately leading to the coveted green card status through the PERM labor certification program.
- H1B Visa Lottery and Petition: Our initial step involved facilitating our client’s entry into the H1B visa lottery. We meticulously prepared and submitted the H1B visa petition, ensuring that all the necessary documentation and requirements were met. This process was essential for enabling the employee to legally work in the United States.
- PERM Labor Certification: Once our client’s employee had arrived in the United States on an H1B visa, we embarked on the laborious journey of securing the PERM labor certification. This phase involved seeking approval from the US Department of Labor (DOL), a crucial step in the green card application process.
- Form I-140 Petition for Foreign Worker: Following the DOL’s approval, we proceeded to file the Form I-140 Petition for Foreign Worker with the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). This petition was thoroughly prepared and submitted, eventually receiving approval, further solidifying the employee’s path towards permanent residency.
- Form I-485 Adjustment of Status: The final leg of this journey involved the employee filing the Form I-485 Adjustment of Status, allowing them to transition from H1B visa holder to a US permanent resident. This marked the culmination of a successful transition from a temporary work visa to permanent residency in the United States.
Our client’s experience was defined by smooth and efficient immigration processes, and their satisfaction speaks volumes about our commitment to excellence. They entrusted us to handle their immigration needs:
Our company used the services of Richards and Jurusik Immigration Law to obtain an H1B work visa and later a green card for one of our employees with valuable experience that we could not find locally. Jeremy Richards did an excellent job of helping us navigate the complicated application processes. With his reminders we were able to get things submitted in a timely manner to meet all of the deadlines. Everything went smoothly and we were successful in bringing our employee to the U.S. Jeremy could see how important this was to our company, and I felt like he truly cared about the success of our business. I would definitely recommend him for anyone who has the need for immigration services.
