For many people wishing to immigrate to the U.S. through an employment-based immigration program, there are two processes to complete to obtain permanent residency. These are the I-140 Immigrant Petition for Alien Workers and the I-485 Application to Register Permanent Residence. These forms can be filed simultaneously, or, a person can wait until the I-140 has been approved before filing the I-485 application. Which path is best for you depends on a number of factors, which the employment-based immigration lawyers at Klasko Law can help you evaluate.
