How We Can Help

We know you want the best for your business, including the best talent! Your top job candidate may be someone who has all of the education, experience & qualifications you require…everything except the ability to legally work in the United States. Artisan Law can assist clients with immigration legal services, such as conducting due diligence and risk assessment for the employment and transfer of foreign employees.

The process of securing the permits and visas for employment can be complicated and rigorous. In addition, immigration, in general, is facing growing scrutiny in our country due to the changing political landscape.  The chances of successfully bringing a foreign candidate into your organization may become threatened without a well-organized approach for navigating the process. 

The U.S. Department of State classifies visas according to the type of work or specialization the applicant will be performing. Figuring out the correct classification and proper documentation can be difficult and cause costly delays to your hiring process.  Allow Artisan Law to take the reins so that you can continue to focus on what’s most important–running your business and making it a success.

First, the employer must determine which category of employment-based visas the foreign national is eligible, such as EB-1, EB-2, EB-3, or EB-4.  Second, the employer must determine if a labor certification from the Department of Labor is required and if so, have the certification approved prior to filing a petition for employment-based immigration with the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).

There are a number of temporary work visas available for foreign nationals engaged in specialty occupations.  A brief, but non-exhaustive list includes those for foreign nurses, trainees, intracompany transferees, temporary or seasonal agricultural and non-agricultural workers, individuals with extraordinary abilities in the arts, sciences, education, and business, and participants in international cultural programs.

PERM is the process employers must use to apply for permanent labor certification from the Department of Labor (DOL) for foreign nationals they seek to hire for permanent, full-time employment in the U.S. As part of the PERM process, regulations were passed that require employers to conform to specific standards in the certification process, including in their recruitment efforts. See Title 20 of the CFR, Part 656 for a complete list of the PERM regulations.

You can stay and work in the U.S. for three years with an H-1B visa. Sometimes you can get permission to stay for another three years. But after six years, you will have to leave the U.S. and not return for an entire year before you can apply for another H-1B visa.
