GREEN CARDS THROUGH EMPLOYMENT

This page explains how to obtain green cards through employment. During the past 30 years, the Law Offices of Carl Shusterman have assisted many thousands of individuals in obtaining green cards through employment. We also represent over 100 employers across the U.S., assisting them in sponsoring employees for both temporary working visas and green cards.

140,000 persons are permitted to become green card holders through the following employment-based (EB) preference categories each year:

The EB-1 preference category consists of (1) persons of extraordinary ability, (2) outstanding professors and researchers and (3) executives and managers of multinational employers.

The EB-2 preference category consists of (1) persons of exceptional ability and (2) persons whose jobs require an advanced university degree or its equivalent. Most EB-2 petitions require that an employer obtain the approval of a PERM application from the U.S. Department of Labor before sponsoring the person for lawful permanent residence.

The EB-3 preference category consists of (1) professionals, (2) skilled workers and (3) unskilled workers. Most EB-3 petitions require that an employer obtain the approval of a PERM application from the U.S. Department of Labor before sponsoring the person for permanent residence.

The EB-4 preference category consists of (1) religious workers and (2) other “special immigrants”.

The EB-5 preference category consists of investors.

 

Note that only employers of persons in the EB-2 and EB-3 categories may be required to undergo the PERM process in order to obtain green cards through employment for their employees.  Persons in the EB-1, EB-4 and EB-5 categories are never required to use PERM in order to qualify for green cards.

We hope that the materials listed below assist you in learning more about Green Cards through Employment.

 

“Very professional law firm. We had a difficult issue and Mr. Shusterman’s office got right onto the case and resolved the issue with USCIS. Because of their efforts, me and my family were able to get our Legal Permanent Residency card. My suggestion to those trying to obtain employment based card. Don’t look for money saving attorney. They will cost you lot more in long run. Go to a law firm which is professional and knowledgeable. It pays in the long term.” (More client reviews…)
