If you or your employee or client is looking into education-based Green Card options, you are well aware of the puzzle EB2 presents. This classification requires the candidate to hold an advanced degree of a US Masters Degree or higher or its foreign equivalent, or a US Bachelors degree or its foreign equivalent followed by…

EB2 traps can set your Green Card, or your employee or client’s Green Card back years. Know where they are so you don’t fall into one. Although it is tempting for candidates to try to meet EB2 qualifications when really their education and employment is a fit for EB3, trying to make education that simply…

If you or your employee or client is planning to file for EB2 visa status, make sure that the education meets requirements for this particular classification.

Visa petitions across the board are receiving more RFEs with every year. This is particularly the case for education-based RFEs that require the form I-140.

A common and costly mistake EB2 candidates, and their lawyers and employers make is filing for this advanced degree visa without the…

There are plenty of good credential evaluators out there who are not a good fit for your EB2 credential evaluation, or your employee or client’s EB2 credential evaluation. They can write accurate evaluations, but not the right one for what you need. Finding the right credential evaluator for your unique case, or your employee or…

PERM requirements for EB2 visas are very specific, and because EB2 petitions take years less time to process than EB3 visas, candidates are tempted to try to make their credentials fit into EB2 status even if they do not fit, or they are not sure whether or not they fit. Do not do this. This…
