Obtaining an Employment-Based Green Card
Employment-based green cards are made available to individuals whose labor or work skills are needed to fill gaps in the United States workforce.
The first and most important step in taking this route in seeking a green card is to have a job offer from a United States employer (there are exceptions for those with “exceptional abilities” or those who are able to obtain a National Interest Waiver).
The second step is that the employer must be willing to sponsor you for a green card.
Green cards through employment are divided into five preference categories, each of which has separate requirements that need to be met by the foreign national. In each category, only a limited number of green cards are given out each year.
To ensure that you have the best odds at obtaining the green card you need to live and work in the United States, it is paramount that you retain the services of an experienced New York City employment immigration lawyer timely. Our firm can help ensure you meet all deadlines and that you qualify for your employment-based green card.
