Why consider applying for L-1 Visa?
Employees who work for companies that are located outside of the U.S. but that work with a company inside the U.S. are afforded the opportunity to obtain an L-1 Visa, provided they meet certain criteria. An L-1 Visa holder is able to apply for a green card after only one year, has fewer monetary obligations as compared to those with an EB-5 Visa, and can secure an L-2 Visa for their spouse and/or children that would allow them to stay in the country for the same length of time as the L-1 holder.
In order to qualify for an L-1, employees must have some sort of specialized knowledge, characteristic of a managerial position. They must be able to prove that the foreign company can be sustained during their absence and that they will have a significant role in the ongoing business occurring within the U.S.
Although it can be difficult to prove that all of these criteria apply to you, the attorneys at [firm-name] Call [phone-number] to discuss how we can help you and your family.
