Providing personalized and thorough attention to your unique immigration case
The attorneys at Walker & Associates of Michigan, P.C. meticulously assess your situation to provide you with an individualized strategy that meets your needs. Every visa comes with its own set of essential criteria, which your qualifications must match precisely. Mistakes on your application can mean delays or even denial. That is why it is necessary to recruit an experienced immigration attorney who can gather the documentation and evidence that supports your eligibility. Because immigration laws regularly change, we are dedicated to maintaining and deepening our knowledge so that you can advance smoothly through USCIS’s complex visa process.
Experienced attorneys helping you maneuver through the red tape
Even if your business has just one employee, you are required to comply with INA requirements on employment eligibility. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) enforces INA provisions addressing employment eligibility, employment verification and nondiscrimination. And the consequences of an employer unknowingly hiring unauthorized workers or failing to properly complete and retain an Employment Eligibility Verification Form, commonly known as a Form I-9, can include criminal charges and penalties.
The attorneys at Walker & Associates of Michigan, P.C. can thoroughly examine acceptable forms of documentation, confirm your employees’ citizenship or eligibility to work in the United States, and help you conduct self-audits of your I-9s each year to ensure they have been completed accurately. They also provide you with personalized immigration counsel so you can take proactive measures against discrimination lawsuits arising from improperly handled 1-9 forms under the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 (IRCA).
