Employment-Based Petitions in Orange County

How to Immigrate Through Employment Status

The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) does provide resident opportunities for foreign nationals who have permanent employment prospects in the United States. Unfortunately, sometimes this process takes a very long time to receive inspection and approval. With the help of an immigration attorney who is familiar with the process, you can maximize the speed of your green card petition.

The United States government offers different visas for different foreign nationals based on skill and potential contributions to the country as a whole. Depending upon your qualifications, you may be eligible for an employment-based green card. An Orange County employment-based immigration attorney at The Law Office of Bruce C. Bridgman can discuss your options with you. Their immigration legal team is very knowledgeable and experienced in all types of immigration procedures in the United States.
