Frequently Asked Questions

What is the best way to obtain a work permit?
Green card applications, U Visas for victims of crime, and VAWA petitions are the most common ways to obtain work permits for our clients.
How can I get a social security number?
The work permit application includes an option to apply for and receive a social security card along with the work permit. Another option is to apply for a social security number in person at a Social Security Office once you have your work permit.
My friend obtained a work permit by applying for asylum. Can I do that?
If you have a good asylum case, yes. If you don't have an asylum case and are filing it just for a work permit, you will end up in removal (deportation) proceedings and likely be removed. Do not apply for asylum without consulting with an experienced attorney.
Can my employer file an application for a work permit for me?
Possibly. Please see our Business Immigration pages and schedule a consultation with one of our dedicated business immigration attorneys to discuss options for work permits through an employer.
