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.
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.
