Attempting to immigrate to the U.S. for work, whether on a temporary or permanent basis, can be a stressful process. While the visa application process should be straightforward, there are several hurdles that can arise making it a complicated legal matter. To ensure that you and your family are able to successfully immigrate, it is important work with an experienced business immigration attorney who can help you navigate the following situations.

Paperwork: Aside from knowing how to complete visa applications, a seasoned attorney can make sure all your paperwork is filed on time and that all supplemental application items like photographs, labor certificates, etc. is included with the application.

Inadmissible: A common problem that people who are attempting to immigrate to the U.S. face is being declared inadmissible. The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) or consulate may declare an applicant inadmissible if there is a flaw on his/her record, or there is a history of lying to the U.S. government. If you know that one of these situations applies to you, it is vital to hire an attorney before applying for a business immigration visa.

Delayed Application: There are several reasons a visa application may be delayed, with the most common reasons being typos, missing pages, or incomplete information. By partnering with a savvy attorney, you can avoid these frustrations by ensuring your application is correct and complete before submission, as well as receive regular updates on the status of the application.
