Many talented workers in Florida are from another country. These workers are critical in the manufacturing, corporate, medical and other areas of employment across the state. But, occasionally immigration legal issues get in the way and cause an employee to need our assistance.
There are several different types of visas that a professional worker can apply for when they come to work in the United States. There are immigrant petitions and nonimmigrant petitions based on whether a worker is here temporarily or permanently. These petitions are based on a person’s background and what career they will be engaged in in the US.
For example, an EB-1 category includes those who are outstanding professors and managers. These individuals can petition for permanent residency without having to go through a labor certification process. While an EB-3 category is for those who have a job offer and a potential employer must complete the labor certification process. Temporary visas can include the H-1B which is for professionals with at least a bachelor’s degree.
