Modrall Sperling's Immigration lawyers provide legal advice and assistance with both non-immigrant and immigrant (green card) visas for both businesses and individuals. Our lawyers have experience in non-immigrant visa issues that typically face employers both in New Mexico and elsewhere, including but not limited to B, E, H-1B, L-1, and TN visas (for Canadian and Mexican nationals), entries under the visa waiver program, optional practical training and curricular practical training for F-1 visa holders, obtaining employment authorization, and complying with employer verification requirements.
In addition, our immigration lawyers have experience in all aspects of lawful permanent residence petitions (green card) for both businesses and individuals. We can assist businesses with the recruiting requirements and Department of Labor PERM application process, the immigration petition and, if necessary, any appeal, consular processing questions, and all other aspects of qualifying employees for permanent residence and employment in the United States.
For individuals we provide advice and assistance in the preparation of petitions for permanent residence, adjustment of status applications, obtaining employment authorization, and other aspects of obtaining or maintaining permanent residence or lawful presence in the United States.
