Knowledge of Current H-2B Law
We are at the forefront of ever-changing laws and work closely with The American Immigration Lawyers Association to stay up-to-date with all immigration regulations that affect our clients.
Advantage of Repeat Clients
Often times, businesses have a group of workers that come back year after year. Our reputation has made us a reliable choice for helping these workers return successfully each year.
As stated above, anyone can be an H-2B agent, but only an attorney can make sure that you are doing everything legally. All too often, things that seem mundane are over looked and larger issues arise. Make sure you know who you are working with. General H-2B agents are not regulated and can cost you, only lawyers are held accountable through the state Bar and are able to represent you in the case of an audit (or any other unforeseen legal matter).
We offer high-quality legal representation and assistance when filling for H-2B Workers
Article: H-2B AGENT INDICTED FOR IMMIGRATION FRAUD Former Branson business owner pleads guilty to visa fraud This is just another example of H-2B agents who have taken advantage of employers and workers for their own financial gains. Unlike attorneys who are regulated by state bar associations and have undergone rigorous education, ethics, and testing requirements, H-2B agents are not regulated by any institution, and there are no requirements for someone to claim to be an H-2B agent. It is very important to know who is filing your H-2B petition. You are signing legal documents and can be held liable for what is contained in them. Anyone can be an H-2B agent, but only attorneys have the training and expertise to interpret the complex laws and regulations to make a legal argument to win the case for you and prevent unnecessary delays. Being represented by an attorney, who can legally advise you, and protect your company from expensive DOL and USCIS audits and enforcement is key for having a successful season with reliable labor.
Completing the H-2B Process
We complete the H-2B process from filling the petition for workers to making sure that their visas appointments are made.
Businesses that have seasonal work can often times have a hard time finding reliable labor. Immigrant laborers on an H-2B visa is often the solution! Let us take the stress out of filling the paperwork- we take care of obtaining your workers, legally. Anyone can be an H-2B agent, but only the expertise of an attorney can protect you from legal issues regarding these visas.
We have streamlined the H-2B process to make it as fast and easy as possible for you. We know that you are busy running your business and your time is valuable.
We charge one flat legal fee that covers everything involved in getting the visas approved. This includes responding to any requests for evidence from DOL or USCIS. There are no hidden costs.
Our clients have the choice to schedule the appointments themselves, use one of the foreign agents that we refer to, or use any other agent that they chose. Click here for more information.
After the Workers Arrive
We will advise you regarding your legal responsibilities. We are always available to answer any legal questions you may have regarding your H-2B workers at no charge.
When you get audited, you often don’t have much time to respond. If you are represented by our office, we will assist you with any audit you receive, even if we did not represent you on the petition for which you are being audited. The audit will be considered a new case and we will enter into a new Agreement for Representation
