At Barst, each New York City citizenship attorney provides the information and guidance needed to obtain permanent residence in the United States. This complex and highly-regulated process can be daunting for both the hiring employer and the employee seeking residence. To learn more about the procedures and requirements for obtaining permanent residence, visit our How to Get Permanent Residence page.
While labor certification is most often associated with obtaining permanent residency, many professionals seek labor certification on semi-permanent and temporary bases as well. A New York immigration attorney at Barst has extensive experience in successfully obtaining labor certifications on behalf of our clients. In today’s global economy, the ability to conduct business internationally is essential to many of our clients, and we have the experience necessary to best advise them. For details on the labor certification process, visit our Labor Certification page.
The U.S. government requires all workers, foreign and domestic, to be properly registered for employment in the United States. Employers must follow strict guidelines to ensure compliance with these government regulations, including identity and eligibility verification of all workers, regardless of citizenship. For employers that rely on foreign workers with specialty occupations, select visa types are available to these workers and employers must properly document these workers. To learn about compliance with these regulations, visit our Enforcement Issues page.
