Savvy Business Immigration Lawyer in Miami, FL
Permanent residence qualifications for investors and entrepreneurs
U.S. immigration policies are not altruistic; they are crafted to benefit the United States by bringing in talented and industrious individuals to help the country compete in the global marketplace. Specific categories of work visas are set aside for business leaders and coveted investors. The Law Offices of Arthur D. Lake, LLC helps businesses secure immigrant visas for workers with extraordinary abilities. The firm also assists entrepreneurs and venture capitalists who wish to bring their business resources to the United States in exchange for permanent residence.
Recruiting priority workers for a competitive economy
Talented and accomplished would-be immigrants can apply for “First Preference” employment status. These are “priority workers” whose unique contributions can drive success in their industries. Priority workers receive almost 30 percent of the annual employment-based immigrant visas. They include:
- Individuals with extraordinary ability in the sciences, arts, education, business or athletics
- Professors and researchers with at least three years of experience and international recognition
- Multinational executives who have been employed by the overseas branch of a U.S. employer
Proving your qualification for this category requires precise and extensive documentation beyond what most business immigration attorneys in Miami typically handle. Unlike most other lawyers, Attorney Arthur Lake has been through the immigration process himself. He also has a broad background in business, so he knows what constitutes a priority worker worthy of first preference. The assistance of a capable and proven immigration law firm ensures a complete and thorough application that has the best chance of approval.
Getting your green card through investment in America
Besides favoring top-tier business leaders, U.S. immigration also favors investors and entrepreneurs who want to make an investment in a business enterprise that will create American jobs. To qualify as an immigrant investor, you must invest more than $500,000 in a commercial enterprise in the United States. That business must create at least 10 full-time jobs for U.S. citizens, permanent residents or other lawful immigrants, not including you and your family. Attorney Arthur Lake assists in filing an Immigrant Petition by Alien Entrepreneur, then guiding you through the rest of the process.
