Employment Immigration Lawyers

Employers interested in hiring foreign nationals to work in the United States must first meet a variety of compliance standards set by the U.S. government. To meet the United States compliance standards, you must obtain an H-1B & public access files. The public access files must be maintained by all U.S. employers for their H-1B workers. Specific documents should be kept in these files in the case of an audit by the Department of Labor. Additionally, a Form 1-9 must be completed with each new hire. This form requires employers to review employment authorization for their employees. The process can be complicated, but the legal team at Scott D. Pollock & Associates, P.C.

Naturalization is the process in which a lawful permanent resident becomes a U.S. citizen. To become a citizen through naturalization, you must first submit a completed application and fingerprints. Following the application and fingerprinting, an interview will be scheduled. Any applicants must also pass a U.S. civics test and an English test.
