I-140 Immigrant Petition for Alien Worker

The I-140 Immigrant Petition for Alien Workers is a crucial step in the immigration process for foreign workers seeking permanent residency in the United States. The I-140 petition process can be complex and time-consuming. At Sverdloff Law Group, we provide effective legal representation to individuals and businesses navigating this process.

The Benefits of the I-140 Petition

The benefits of the I-140 petition are significant. Once approved, it allows foreign workers to be legally employed in the United States. Workers with an approved I-140 may be eligible to change employers without jeopardizing their immigration status. It also paves the way for obtaining permanent residency, commonly known as a green card. Additionally, dependents of the primary beneficiary can also benefit from the petition by accompanying or joining the worker in the United States.

Basics of I-140 Petition Process

The I-140 petition is designed for foreign workers who have received a job offer from a U.S. employer. The application process for the I-140 petition involves several steps, and an application must meet several requirements to be successful. These include providing evidence of the worker’s education and work experience in their field, and certain visa types will also require exceptional abilities or skills. The basic steps are as follows:

  • Filing: First, the employer must file the petition with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) along with supporting documents. For this form, the employer will be known as the applicant, and the foreign worker will be referred to as the beneficiary. 
  • Documentation: The required documentation will depend on the type of visa the worker is seeking. This could include (but is not limited to) proof of education such as diplomas or degrees, evidence of prior work experience and expertise, letters of recommendation, tax records, and more.
  • Review: USCIS will then review the petition and may request additional evidence or conduct an interview. Processing times may vary by filing location, but premium processing may be available for an additional fee.
  • Approval: Once approved, you can proceed with the remainder of the immigration process.
