How Bogin, Munns & Munns’ Immigration Lawyers Help With Work Visas

Is a Work Visa Required to Enter the United States for Work?
Your work visa is vital to your ability to live and work in the United States legally. Without this permit, you cannot work and earn a living without violating laws and possibly drawing attention from USCIS. In addition, working without a proper visa could severely limit your opportunities and earnings. Securing your visa and abiding by its terms is probably your best option for legally working in the United States.
Our immigration lawyers provide advice, guidance, and hands-on support for navigating the petition process. We ensure you understand the conditions and requirements of the visa, choose the appropriate category, and know the rules you need to follow after you receive your work permit.
You do not want to risk USCIS denying your petition for a minor mistake. This is common and can cause significant delays. This process is already time-consuming, so you want to reduce the risk as much as possible.

We Handle All Types of Work Visa Petitions
A work visa allows an individual to live and work in the United States, often for a limited time. Those who want to live in the United States permanently will need to apply for a more permanent work visa, sometimes called an employment-based immigrant visa. Visa holders can generally bring their spouses and any children under age 21 when they come to the United States to work.
Bogin, Munns & Munns handles all types of work visa petitions, including both temporary visa and permanent visa requests. First, we consider your goals, skills, and the circumstances surrounding your decision to move. Some of the types of temporary or permanent visas we apply for with our clients include:
- H-1B Visas, which allow those with specialty occupations to work in the United States; these can sometimes be a path to permanent residency
- H-2B Visas, which allow seasonal, non-agricultural temporary workers
- H-2A Visas, which allow seasonal agricultural workers from certain pre-approved countries
- L-1A and L-1B Visas, which allow the employees of some foreign businesses with interests in the United States to work here
- EB-1 Visas, which allow for permanent residency of those with extraordinary abilities in science, art, sports, or business
- EB-2 Visas, which allow for permanent residency of those with advanced degrees or exceptional abilities
- EB-3 Visas, which allow for permanent residency for professionals and skilled workers
- EB-4 Visas, which allow for permanent residency for “special immigrants,” including certain international religious and nonprofit workers, employees of U.S. foreign service posts, noncitizen minors who become wards of U.S. courts, and others who fall into this visa’s very specific categories
- EB-5 Visas, which allow for permanent residency for foreign entrepreneurs investing significant money in U.S. enterprises
Before we file a permanent employment visa application for our clients, we must ensure their employer takes the necessary steps. This includes getting the Department of Labor certification that there are no eligible, qualified U.S. citizens to take the job. The employer must play a significant role in these petitions.
We Also Facilitate Status Changes
Our team also handles work visa status adjustments and paperwork for family members accompanying a visa holder. This includes changing status from temporary worker to permanent immigrant, which could occur when an employer asks a worker with a temporary visa to extend their stay or the visa holder decides to remain in the United States.
Be wary, though. You cannot take work in the United States on a temporary visa with the explicit goal of securing a permanent worker visa. You may face deportation if the authorities become aware of your intention to stay. That is why we need to be on the same page about your intentions from the beginning of the process.
