Fast Action for New Hire

A new client called with a problem: she had recently lost her job and needed our help to file a new petition to permit her to start work with a new company.

Attorney Eric Fleischmann determined that under then-current USCIS policy, there were just a few weeks left to file a new petition to authorize the change of employers. He helped the company file a new petition and advised on the timeline for starting the new job. The client was able to start work on the date of filing as a portable worker, and upon approval of the petition was able to resume her ability to travel internationally.
