Employment-Based Green Card

Although they’re one of the most common ways to gain legal permanent status in the U.S., employment-based green cards are challenging to obtain.

Non-Immigrant Work/ Employment/ Student Status

A non-immigrant visa or non-immigrant status enables a foreign worker to enter the U.S. for a finite period of time for a specific type of employment.  Such visas or statuses are normally tied to the specific employer and for the specific job for which the visa or status was granted. Other temporary/non-immigrant visas are to students, tourists, or business visitors for certain types of non-employment business matters (e.g., attending meetings, signing contracts, presenting or attending conferences). Some of the common non-immigrant visas are:

Our San Jose immigration lawyers take great pride in our ability to help reunite families. If you are already a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident, you may sponsor your spouse, immediate relatives, and other family members through the following family-based immigrant visas:

Citizenship/ Naturalization

If you are already a green card holder and you meet the requirements for naturalization, then obtaining U.S. citizenship is something you must consider. Being a U.S. citizen comes with great benefits, including the right to vote. U.S. citizens also possess one of the world’s most powerful passports, allowing them to visit over 150 countries without applying for a visa. Make sure to contact a San Jose immigration lawyer to help you with your naturalization application.
