How long does it take for the Work Permit to be issued after we file the petition with USCIS?

The Work Permit is usually issued 90 days after the petition is filed with USCIS.

What is Advance Parole?

Advance Parole is the re-entry permit that you must apply for if you wish to re-enter the U.S. after foreign travel while you are waiting for your Green Card.

If you do not have the Advance Parole re-entry permit and you leave the U.S., you may be denied re-entry.

Note: If you are on an H-1B or L-1 Visa, you do not need the Advance Parole Re-entry permit. You may re-enter the U.S. on your H-1B or L-1 Visa, provided you are still in valid H-1B or L-1 status.

After your Work Permit is issued, you may apply for your Social Security Card at any Social Security Office.

You fill out the application in the Social Security Office and they will mail you the Social Security Card about 2 weeks later.

    ★★★★★
  • After searching for an attorney/firm to prepare my NIW case I came across Marc’s website (usavisanow.com). I was immediately struck by how responsive they were, often answering my detailed questions within an hour. It took about 4 weeks from start the process to filing with USCIS – mostly because of the time it took me to obtain the reference / recommendation letters…
    ★★★★★
  • The Green Card process, or any immigration petition for that matter, can be a very daunting, stressful and confusing process for applicants. Thanks to Marc and his team, my experience (for both my Green Card application from start to finish, and H1B transfer from my former to my current employer) was none of those things.
    ★★★★★
  • I worked with Taylor and Associates Law P.C. on two separate cases — an H1B work visa and a marriage green card — and was very pleased with the high-level of service they provided. The visa process is very overwhelming, but my case manager, Mr. Dorer, made both processes easy and efficient because he is informative and is always quick to respond to my questions in a timely manner.
    ★★★★★
