Find good reliable talent for your workforce so you can grow your business

As a business owner and an entrepreneur, you have a vision. You think differently and are always trying to find ways to make things more efficient, get bigger jobs and increase revenue. Unfortunately, you have run into an issue where you can’t find the talent you need to be able to grow your business. Employees you find are not as productive as you would like, turnover is high and everyday you worry about not having enough people to be able to fulfill a job.

Because of this problem, you cannot satisfy demand, you have lost good contracts and cannot plan for future growth.

At Costas Network Law Center, we have helped many established businesses solve this problem. We understand how frustrating this can be for you as a business owner who took the risk to build your own business and are now contributing to your community by generating jobs to be struggling like this. You deserve to have that peace of mind to be able to find and rely on good talent that will be with you long term.

If you can’t find the talent you need in the United States, we can help you keep your foreign workers or even bring people from outside of the country to be able to work for you for years to come.

Since employees have to remain with you for the entirety of the immigration process, you can enjoy at least 2-3 years of security and stability so you can focus on what you do best which is running your company

EMPLOYMENT-BASED IMMIGRANT VISAS

If you are looking to reside in the United States permanently, there are numerous ways to obtain a green card through employment.

EMPLOYMENT-BASED IMMIGRANT VISAS

If you are looking to reside in the United States permanently, there are numerous ways to obtain a green card through employment.  We work with both businesses and individuals to determine which immigrant visa is the best option for the intending immigrant.  We provide assistance throughout the entire process including filling out applications, gathering documents, labor certification, and interview preparation.

Employment-based immigrant visas are divided into five categories. The time it takes for an individual to get a green card will depend on the preference category, as well as the person’s country of origin. Most employment-based immigrant visas are based on a job offer and require an employer sponsor. Generally, employment-based immigrant visas require a three-step process:

  • The employer must obtain a labor certificate from the Department of Labor establishing that there are no qualified workers in the United States for the position.
  • The employer must then file a petition on behalf of the foreign employee.
  • Once the petition is approved, and when an immigrant visa is available, the foreign employee may file an application to adjust status (if in the United States) or an application for an immigrant visa (if abroad).

There are certain visas that do not require the above process.  We work with our clients to determine whether an individual can qualify for an exemption to the three-step process, making the path to a green card quicker.
