I-140, Immigrant Petition for Alien Worker

Immigrants with special skills and abilities can use Form I-140, Immigrant Petition for Alien Worker, to petition U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) for an immigrant visa. We have helped many immigrants with filling out, gathering documents in support of, and submitting Form I-140 to USCIS. For some categories of the employment-based visas, such as the EB1-1, Employment-Based Extraordinary Ability Green Card, the petitioner can self-petition without a job offer. For other categories, such as the EB2, for members of the professions holding advanced degrees or their equivalent, the petitioner generally requires a job offer. We are proud to share these I-140 success stories with you and are honored to help our accomplished and skilled clients secure their futures in the United States.
