Our knowledge and experience allow us to plan for several different immigration benefit matters, including:

  • J-1 waivers through state and federal agencies, including the Conrad State 30 Waiver program: For foreign nationals subject to the two-year home country residence requirement, we obtained J-1 waivers of the two-year requirement or, alternatively, qualified foreign nationals for other appropriate nonimmigrant status.
  • Maximum time reached in H-1B status: When unable to extend H-1B status for a foreign national beyond the six-year limit, we have found another appropriate nonimmigrant category as well as filed an immigrant petition for the foreign national to secure employment authorization.
  • PERM labor certification obtained after audit: Through careful preparation and documentation, the U.S. Department of Labor certified applications after comprehensive review of the created audit file.
  • Referrals to overcome USCIS request for evidence and notice of intent to deny
