U.S. immigration law allows relatives of U.S. citizens and green card holders to obtain green cards based on that family relationship. However, not all relatives qualify, but spouses, children, siblings, and parents of U.S. citizens and green card holders generally do qualify. For these close relatives of U.S. citizens or green card holders to obtain their green cards, the U.S. citizen or green card holder must first file a Form I-130 petition with USCIS. If it is a U.S. citizen filing the I-130 petition, then the petition can be concurrently filed together with a green card application of the relative. If the I-130 petition is being filed by a green card holder, then the I-130 petition must be approved first before the relative applies for their green card. Going through the complicated immigration process to obtain any of these visas can be frustrating. Always hire an experienced immigration lawyer to help you.
American companies are allowed under U.S. immigration and labor laws to recruit and bring foreign workers to work for them. To do this, the American employer must first get approval from the USCIS. The foreign worker must also meet certain requirements. The process of bringing a foreign worker to work in the U.S. begins with the employer filing a petition with USCIS. The petition would request for the prospective foreign employee to be given a permanent or temporary work visa.
Companies that hire foreign workers must comply with additional labor and employment laws. These laws and regulations are intended to make sure the employer has proper employment records covering these foreign workers. One of the areas that is frequently investigated is non-compliance with I-9 requirements. An employer found to be in violation of these compliance laws is subject to serious penalties. At Kriezelman Burton & Associates, we represent companies to ensure compliance with immigration laws and obtain visas for employees.
Our legal team at Kriezelman Burton & Associates not only assists with obtaining employment and family-based immigration benefits, but we also handle deportation defense and other serious matters. If you are in the Chicago area and need an immigration lawyer, contact us today to discuss your case.
Best super lawyers in Chicagoland.
Kriezelman Burton is a great firm, and Erin C. Cobb is an excellent lawyer. They were very professional and knowledgeable about the immigration process. They helped me every step of the way and made sure I understood everything that was happening. Erin always was transparent and gave me great advice to move my case forward. She turned things upside down and found simple yet difficult-to-see solutions to gain the edge and win my case. I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for the best legal representation.
They are a great firm, I worked with Kevin Raica and his team. It was a pleasure working with them. They were great, and Kevin is an excellent and very organized lawyer. His expertise and knowledge helped with my process. I highly recommend him !!!!!!!!!!
