Frequently Asked Questions On Immigration Law

When you must deal with international immigration law, you will always have more questions than answers. That’s not an ideal place for anyone, which is why you need to turn to an attorney you can trust.

He wants to answer your questions about immigration law, but the truth is your answers might depend greatly on a lot of very specific elements. However, there are some general questions that we can answer right now:

Can I sponsor an employee for a green card?

Yes. If you have an employee moving to the U.S., you can sponsor them for a green card or other type of visa or residency. However, there are many choices available to you when it comes to this, so you will need to review the facts of your issue with a skilled attorney.

Are my employees eligible for work in the U.S.?

This is a question that can require a great deal of research. Generally, many employees may be eligible for a variety of visa options, such as:

  • Exceptional ability
  • Advanced degrees
  • Specialized knowledge
  • Respected artistic contributions

If your employee falls into one of these groups, they are likely eligible to work in the U.S. However, this is a complex issue, and there is a variable that can disqualify some while others find their path easier.

What can I ask potential employees about their immigration status?

In general, asking questions about immigration status can possibly put you at risk of discrimination action. However, you can ask if a person is eligible to work in the U.S.

How does asylum work?

On a basic level, asylum is as simple as entering the united states and requesting it from the government. International law dictates that requests that nations must temporarily grant asylum while an investigation takes place. It’s about safety.

However, asking for asylum and receiving asylum are often different.

Who is eligible for asylum?

Eligibility for asylum depends on the threats they face in their home country. You would have to have a legitimate fear of injury or death because of your:

  • Political beliefs
  • Religion
  • Sexual orientation
  • Gender
  • Race

If your fear is legitimate, you have a strong case to pursue asylum.
