Boston Employment-Based Green Card Lawyer

Nomos Law Group assists people through the green card application process.

Green Card Lawyer in Boston

For some people, moving to Boston or the U.S., in general, opens up opportunities for their career and family. The country has a strong foreign-born workforce through immigration.

There are several ways you can immigrate to the U.S. for work.

What Is a Green Card?

Having a green card allows you to stay in the U.S. permanently. You are allowed to work anywhere in the country, including Boston. It also gives you the benefit of qualifying for US citizenship in three to five years, which opens up even more opportunities.

There are a variety of ways by which you can become eligible for a green card. Each one has its own process and requirements. For someone doing this by themselves, it can get overwhelming. The system is complex, and laws can change in every administration. It is easy to get lost.

At Nomos Law Group, we offer you our experience and knowledge about immigration law that can be invaluable during your application. Schedule a consultation if you are planning to get a green card.

Employment-based Green Card Eligibility

Before you apply for a green card or permanent residency, you first have to demonstrate your eligibility. It starts with the U.S company sponsoring your application. That means you need to have an employment offer from a U.S. company.

The company will need to prove you have the skills, education, and experience required to perform the job function you will be undertaking. Your employer will also have to show that sponsoring you will not negatively affect the market wages in the country.

Alternatively, a person with extraordinary ability can potentially apply for an employment-based green card without the need for an employer. This applies to people having skills significantly above the average worker in the field, and having them would be a benefit to the country as a whole.

How To Apply For An Employment Green Card

If you are outside of the U.S., you can apply for an employment green card through a U.S. consulate. If you are already in the country, you can apply via adjustment of status.

The actual steps in each process vary depending on the facts of your case. Generally, you will need a petition from your sponsor company. Once the Department of Labor and the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services approve your petition and a visa is available in your specific category, you can apply for a green card. You will then go through an interview and biometrics process before receiving a decision.

The entire process can take years, depending on your situation. There are ways to expedite the application, if you fit the requirements. If you want to know more about how you can apply for a green card through employment, schedule a consultation with our Boston employment-based green card lawyers.

Immigration For Family Members

One of the main advantages of obtaining an employment green card is that you can bring your family with you. That is another reason why most foreign nationals working in the U.S. aim to acquire a green card.

If you are an employment-based green card holder, you can bring your spouse and unmarried children below 21 years of age.

Their specific status will depend on your own. If already in the United States, they will need to file Form I-485 to start the process and follow the specific requirements.

If outside the United States, the green card application would be processed by the embassy or consulate nearest to where you live.
