Powers Immigration Law

Employment Based Immigration

The decision to hire a foreign national usually arises from business demands and requires a thorough understanding of United States immigration laws and regulations. The type of visas for employees varies depending on the country of origin, the profession of the employee, and the planned length of stay. At Powers Immigration Law we understand the particular challenges employers face in balancing productivity, regulatory compliance and workforce fulfillment. We can help employers determine which visa best suites their business need and assist those employers in navigating the immigration system.
