Obtaining a Visa in the U.S.
Experienced New Jersey Immigration Attorney
In the United States, only Citizens and Lawful Permanent Residents (Green
Card holders) are allowed to work. Those that enter the country illegally
or obtain employment with a tourist Visa can be placed in
deportation proceedings by the immigration authorities.
Being sponsored by a
U.S. Citizen for a green card through
family reunification is the most common, but certainly not the only way to work legally in
the United States. Many different types of visas are available, depending
on the skills of the beneficiary and the nature of work to be performed.
If you have questions about your visa application, please contact me as
soon as possible. I am a
New Jersey immigration lawyer and am the founding attorney of my firm. I can help you pursue your visa
and provide you with the education and resources so that you know what
your visa allows you to accomplish and what restrictions there might be.
