Permanent Residence

Obtaining permanent residence in the United States is often the goal of both the employee and his or her sponsoring employer.  Chin & Curtis works regularly with our corporate and other employer clients to develop and implement permanent residence strategies that are efficient, excellently prepared, and successfully implemented.  Our goal is not only to deliver a green card, but to do so in a manner that reflects well on everyone involved in the process. 

The majority of employment-based green card cases begin with the complex and often counter-intuitive labor certification process.  We have developed an approach to labor certifications that works for employers.  Our approach harnesses technology, direct attorney involvement, talented and well-trained paralegals, and relentless attention to detail to deliver a service that is easily navigated by the employer and that will survive an audit by the Department of Labor.

We also have a deep expertise in obtaining permanent residence for managerial and executive employees transferred to the United States; for outstanding researchers and professors; for immigrant investors; and self-sponsored petitions for individuals of extraordinary ability or whose work is in the national interest.
