Our capabilities include:

Nonimmigrant Services

Employment-based immigration opens the doors for U.S. employers to reach across the globe to find the talent that best fit their unfilled positions. This form of hiring, however, comes with a unique set of challenges. Fraser Stryker’s immigration attorneys are skilled at assisting employers and employees through the complicated process of filing nonimmigrant H-1B and TN petitions, as well as other nonimmgrant visas, such as B-1, B-2, L, and O visas. We collaborate with our clients beyond the initial petition to assist with filing extensions of stay, change of employer petitions, and petitions for H-4 dependents.

Permanent Residency Services

The complex petition process for permanent residency status can be a daunting undertaking. Our attorneys are equipped to provide legal advice to individuals seeking employment-based permanent residency in the EB-1, EB-2, and EB-3 employment-based preference categories. We lead individuals through job description development, labor certification application, and adjudication of the I-485 adjustment of status application.

Employment Eligibility Verification/Work Authorization Compliance

State and federal laws require United States employers to verify identity and document employment eligibility authorization. With I-9 audits on the rise, it is imperative that employers have the proper employment eligibility verification policies and procedures in place must equip themselves should an audit occur.

Ensure Compliance with Proper Training

To assist our clients with ensuring compliance with all employment eligibility and work authorization regulations, we partner with our clients to create compliant training and procedures for Form I-9, identifying proper work authorization documents, and E-Verify participation. We have substantial experience aiding in employer self-audits and conducting Form I-9 audits required for employers that are pursuant to contractual obligations.
