H-1B and TN Visas Lawyer
H-1B visas are for foreign workers who wish to enter the United States on a temporary basis to perform specialty occupations for a U.S. employer. A TN visa is for Canadian and Mexican professionals who wish to enter the U.S. for employment purposes. Regardless of the specific visa, the immigration process can get complicated quickly, and having experienced legal representation on your side is essential to making a successful application.
Sarah Vitelli is an experienced Woburn H-1B and TN visas attorney who represents employers and individuals throughout Massachusetts. Ms. Vitelli will thoroughly review your situation to ensure that your rights and your interests remain protected throughout the visa process.
Efficient and Effective Guidance for H-1B Visas
There are only a limited number of H-1B visas granted each year. That is why it is important to have someone who is able to guide you through this process efficiently and effectively. A number of different factors must be taken into account when applying for this type of visa, including whether the worker has the required skills or education, whether the U.S.-based employer is willing to pay for the visa and whether the job is considered to be a specialty occupation.
In general, a job is considered to be a specialty occupation if it requires a bachelor’s degree or foreign equivalent. Attorney Vitelli will thoroughly analyze the job’s requirements to determine whether it meets the definition of a specialty occupation.
Helping Mexican and Canadian Nationals Pursue TN Visas
TN visas came about as a result of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and apply to Canadian and Mexican nationals who work as professionals. A professional is typically considered to be a person with at least a bachelor’s degree who works in education, the medical profession or a science field, although exceptions do apply.
A TN visa is considered to be temporary and an initial visa is valid for three years. After the three years are up, the visa may be extended for another three years indefinitely. Attorney Vitelli can help with both the initial application and TN visa renewals.
