The United States is a country of immigrants and a proud nation that values families and workers who contribute to society. When applying for an immigration visa, a foreign citizen must be sponsored by a qualifying family member or employer who will file a petition with U.S. Citizen and Immigration Services (USCIS) on their behalf. Because the petition process can be difficult and confusing, ensuring accuracy and taking the right steps are critical to being approved.
U.S. immigration laws are extraordinarily tangled, and it’s been said that immigration law is second only to tax law in its complexity. Furthermore, even modest mistakes in a visa or green card application, or the evidence provided as part of an immigration application process, can lead to years-long delays or even outright denials and deportation. That makes it a challenge for foreign-born persons who might know nothing about U.S. law, much less immigration law.
Neahusan Law immigration lawyers interpret the law, help you analyze your migration rights, possibilities, and strategies, and guide you (or, if applicable, your sponsoring U.S. family member or employer) through every step of the complicated immigration process.
Furthermore, employers seeking to hire global talent in the United States face an increasingly complex and dynamic set of laws, regulations, executive orders, and treaties.
In Nevada, employment-based immigrant visas have both limited and static numerical caps. Before an employer’s petition, the employer must typically obtain proper Nevada labor certification from the Department of Labor (DOL) that there are no U.S. workers who are willing, available, and qualified to fill this specific position.
As regards wages, the Nevada employer must also show that there is no available U.S. worker who would fill the position at a wage that is equal to or greater than the prevailing wage that is typically offered for that occupation in the designated geographic region. The DOL employs this procedure to show that the admission and hiring of foreign workers will not negatively affect job opportunities, wages, and working conditions of U.S. workers. Obtaining an employment-based visa in Nevada may take months or years.

When foreign citizen wants to enter the United States of America, they are required to obtain a visa. There are approximately 185 types, each with its specific application procedures, interview requirements, processing times, fees, expiration dates, and rules. The visa is issued by the foreigner’s own country and will become part of their passport.
In general, visas are divided into two main categories.

Countless people dream about lawfully living and working in the United States of America. Making this dream a reality is a possibility for many of them, but only if they can successfully navigate the United States’ confusing and complex immigration laws.
Given the incredible importance placed on being granted permanent resident status (green card) or U.S. citizenship, it is surprising how many people attempt to achieve their immigration goals without the assistance of an experienced attorney that specializes in immigration law. Some do indeed succeed, but many others fail. And unfortunately, this failure may lead to their ultimate and worst possible nightmare: being deported.
