The United States provides the opportunity for many people to enter the country and realize the American Dream. If you want to enter the country for work purposes, you have two options. You can obtain either a temporary work visa or an employment-based green card. A temporary work visa will allow you to stay in the country for a certain period of time. Employment-based green cards, on the other hand, will provide you with lawful permanent resident status.
Not everyone is eligible for either a temporary work visa or an employment-based green card. An Evanston employment immigration attorney can help you determine if you should apply for a visa or green card, and help you navigate the process.
Regardless of whether you are applying for an employment-based visa or a green card, there are a number of ways you may enter the country. The most common types of visas and green cards available for people who want to enter the U.S. for work are as follows:
Any foreign national can apply for the above employment-based visas and green cards. The right one for you will depend on the type of work you perform, and how long you want to remain in the United States.
Before you can work in the United States, you must meet three conditions. They are as follows:
While meeting these requirements is important, you and your employer must also submit several documents, such as a valid passport.

Great work from Brittni Rivera, extremely professional. I highly recommend to go with them especially for U visa cases.
Both Jake, who has since relocated, and Lauren (current) are a saving grace to those who they’ve helped. Lauren, who I am working with currently, cannot be more attentive, understanding, and humble in the work and reassurance she gives you. She never makes you feel like you are any less due to your circumstance, she speaks to you more humanely and with compassion more than even a friend or family may. If you’re in the market for an attorney that cares, does her best to accommodate your circumstance and limitations while working your case, I can not recommend enough Lauren.…
Very intelligent, very much helpful, and always answer any question in your mind. Always immediate replies to my questions. Very much trustful. Thank u very much.
Simply put, I shouldn't be here. I had a really complex immigration case and all the firms that we consulted with told us that I virtually had no chance of staying here in the United States for my son. All except Kriezelman Burton.
