Immigration laws recognize that there is a shortage of nurses and physical therapists in the United States, and they are deemed to be schedule A professionals. Therefore, nurses and physical therapists do not need to perform the traditional test of the labor market required of most other positions. As long as a nurse or physical therapist has an employer who wishes to sponsor them for permanent residency they may file a visa petition directly with USCIS and bypass the Labor Certification process. Nevertheless, certain requirements must be met before nurses can move forward with their petitions.
Nurses are required to be fully licensed or able to become fully licensed in the United States prior to beginning the visa petition process.
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.
Justin Burton is an amazing lawyer that has been assisting me for 19 years! Starting with my green card process, to becoming a citizen! Then guiding my husband as well.
Justin Burton is a great lawyer who will go above and beyond through every step of the process to help you out. He is an honest and straightforward lawyer that will look out for your best interests. He really knows the law and will tell you the possibilities of the outcome depending on your case and background. I had a very complicated case (at least that I was told by previous attorneys). After 20 years of denials and six different lawyers, I was finally referred to Mr. Burton and it was the best thing that happened in my case. After…
Professional, with huge knowledge. Mr. Justin Burton is the best. Five stars is not enough!
