Many people don’t know that the Department of Homeland Security (“DHS”) provides employers with on-line access to all kinds of forms and explanations of regulations through the DHS Website page on employment-based immigration resources.
Through this portal, employers can find plain English “How Do I” guides to hiring foreign nationals, sponsoring employees for permanent residence status, Form I-9 compliance, and proper use of the federal E-verify system.
Employers can also get access to a variety of forms related to employment and immigration, which are required in various circumstances by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, the State Department or the Department of Labor.
People can also use this portal to check on the status of an individual case, and to check on processing times for various applications. There are also links on the DHS page to labor statistics, FAQs pages, visa bulletins, handbooks for employers and other practical tools and information.
These government provided resources are a great place to learn more about the immigration process, but actually navigating that process successfully is very hard to do without an experienced and skilled immigration attorney. If you would like to speak to a lawyer about an immigration opportunity or matter, please do not hesitate to contact our office at (847)564-0712.
