Assisting U.S. Employers And Foreign Nationals With Business Immigration
Bringing employees into the United States is a complicated process. Minor errors in the paperwork or missing the strict deadlines can delay or derail a work visa. It is frustrating for busy employers and for foreign workers who are eager to come to the U.S. and get started.
The best approach is to consult an experienced immigration attorney before making plans to work in the U.S. or before filing for a change of status. Liset Lefebvre assists foreign workers and sponsoring employers in Texas and nationwide with business and investor visas and compliance with U.S. immigration law.
