foreign investors seeking to open companies or satellite offices in
Fees vary for these various Immigration services and it
is advisable to work with an experienced Immigration attorney who is
very familiar with the process you are seeking.
The US Immigration and Customs Enforcement is part of
the Department of Homeland Security and can inspect work sites unannounced to verify
information on work visa petitions or H-1B forms. Employers who
are not in compliance can be assessed fines and penalties.
There are companies operating as
Legal consultants or Notarios which claim to providing Immigration
advice and assistance, which amounts to the unlawful practice of Law
and which is often false or misleading to the public.
