Labor Certification

Immigrants and businesses employing foreigners frequently request our services to help with the permanent labor certification program (PERM) in order to obtain permanent residency, otherwise known as a green card, for that individual. The PERM process is the most common way to obtain permanent residency on the basis of employment. Throughout our decades of experience helping individuals, families, and employers, we have helped many people with navigating the labor certification processing times, understanding the process, and submitting the application. These PERM / Labor Certification success stories are just a few examples of the many cases we have successfully worked on. We are proud to share them.
