Do you need a U.S. visa for your foreign employee and their family? Before submitting your Petition to USCIS, Read our Free resources on employment-based visas and Green Cards
On an average day, USCIS processes more than 2,000 employment-based visa petitions and tens of thousands of other types of petitions and applications. For every application you submit, USCIS charges a filing fee. Because of the high volume of paperwork that they handle, USCIS will use any small reason or mistake to question your petition.
USCIS knows that many people submit petitions without the help of an experienced immigration law attorney. Because the visa processing system is slow, you can expect long wait times when you call the USCIS customer service line for help.
The advantage of having an experienced immigration law attorney on your side is that USCIS would have to deal with a legal team that is invested in the success of your petition.
The experienced immigration attorneys here at Amity Law Group have decades of experience working with hundreds of families, employees, and business owners.

common questions about employment-based immigration
1. Which employment-based work visas am I eligible for?
- Depending on your company size, number of locations, and the level of expertise or education of your employees, they may be eligible to petition for an H-1B or L-1 visa. You should speak with our attorneys if you would like to explore the available options.
2. What are the average processing times for each type of employment-based application?*
- H-1B: The average processing time takes one to two months. Petitioner must submit Form I-129 (Petition for a Non-immigrant Worker). Typically, you will get a Receipt Notice within two weeks, which means that USCIS has received your petition but has not begun processing yet.
- L-1: The average processing time takes one to two months. Petitioner must submit Form I-129 (Petition for a Non-immigrant Worker). Typically, you will get a Receipt Notice within two weeks, which means that USCIS has received your petition but has not begun processing yet.
- EB-1, EB-2, and EB-3 Immigrant Visas: Employment based immigrant visas usually take longer to process than non-immigrant visas. There is an annual quota for EB visas that creates a backlog and affects the average processing time before you can get a green card.
*The times listed above do not reflect Premium Processing times. USCIS offers Premium Processing Service for an additional fee of $1,225, which expedites the processing of your petition to within 15 calendar days.
3. What can I do if my petition was denied?
- Call (626) 307-2800 to schedule your free consultation. Our experienced immigration attorneys will discuss your options, such as: appealing the decision or resubmitting the petition. There is usually a deadline to appeal the decision on your petition, so call us as soon as possible.
4. What if my supporting documentation is in another language?
- Amity Law Group's attorneys and staff speak fluent English, Mandarin, Cantonese, Taiwanese, and Vietnamese. If your supporting documentation is in another language and an official English translation is needed, our firm works with official third-party translation services that provide certified translations at reasonable prices.
5. Does your law firm charge by the hour? Can you offer me a flat fee option?
- We don't charge an hourly rate like other law firms. We tell you our fees upfront so you know exactly what to expect.
