We Can Guide You Through The Process
Our intimate understanding of these various areas of practice often comes into play in the work we do for clients who come to us for help with their immigration cases. Whether you desire to employ foreign workers, need to create a U.S. subsidiary, or are interested in the formation of a business through investment in the U.S., we can guide you through this often complicated process as it relates to immigration law.
Employment-Based Temporary Visas and Immigrant Visas
Many of our clients are employers who choose our Charleston Immigration Attorneys because they need assistance with obtaining employment-based immigration visas for foreign nationals who will be coming to this country to work with the company. Depending on the circumstances, either a non-immigrant or immigrant visa may be appropriate. In either scenario, we can assist with matters including obtaining labor certification from the U.S. Department of Labor, preparing the sponsorship petition, and helping the foreign national to get ready for the interview. We recognize how important it is for you to be able to fill your employment positions and thereby to facilitate the smooth operation and expansion of your business, and we want to help.
Visas for Immigrant Investors
Another common type of case which our immigration lawyers are called upon to handle involves the categories of visas intended for immigrant investors. The E-2 visa is also commonly known as the Treaty Investor visa, and it is a nonimmigrant visa that allows the holder to enter and remain in the United States for the purpose of making substantial investments in this country. The EB-5 Immigrant Investor visa exists for similar purposes, but it has the advantage of enabling the holder to obtain a green card and begin the process of working towards full U.S. citizenship.
