New Jersey P Status Attorneys
You will want to apply for what is known as a P visa classification. A P visa is a temporary visa for foreign nationals looking to work in the United States as an entertainer, artist or athlete. There are three kinds of P status visas, a P-1, P-2 or P-3 status. A P-1 classification is usually applied for athletes and entertainment groups that are foreign-based. A P-2 classification is for alien artists or entertainers who will perform their craft under a reciprocal exchange program. And finally, a P-3 classification is for alien entertainment teachers or acting coaches under a program that is culturally unique. Each classification has their own requirements and documentation needed to apply.
Given all the different kinds of classifications for a P status temporary visa, navigating as to which one you may be eligible for is difficult and confusing alone.

New Jersey L-1 Status Lawyers
A L-1 status temporary visa is for foreign nationals who already work for a company that has a branch, subsidiary, affiliate or parent company in the United States. These are considered intracompany transferees that are coming to the United States company to fulfill an executive or managerial role or bringing a specialized knowledge. The intracompany transferee in question must have been a full-time employee of the corporation for at least one whole year within the past three years. If the alien transferee fits all these qualifications, then they may apply for a L-1 visa. At this current moment, there is no stated annual cap for L-1 visas and the employer is not required to get a labor certification before applying for the L-1 visa.
The Law Offices of Jef Henninger, Esq., has a team of experienced, aggressive L-1 visa lawyers ready to aid you through the petition process. Our law firm will make sure you are qualified for a L-1 visa, and if you happen not to be, go through other options that may be available to you.

New Jersey J Waiver Lawyers
A J-1 visa is for non-immigrants who are approved to participate in an exchange program and allows them to stay temporarily within the United States during the program. This kind of visa usually comes with a two year limit, where the non-immigrant will need to return to their home country after two years after the exchange program is completed. However, in some cases it is possible to get a J waiver to help remove the two year requirement.
The exchange visitor will need to follow the two year requirement if they came to the US for graduate medical school, they received money from the US or their home country or their job is listed on the Exchange Visitors Skills List: which is a list the US government utilizes to determine what jobs that are considered necessary to help in the development of the exchange visitor’s home country.
Given the factors above, it is considered very tough to be able to receive a J waiver to create an exception to the two year requirement. This can still be an issue to the foreign national, even if he or she has married a US citizen while staying in the country. Regardless, getting a J waiver is possible, but to increase your chances, hiring a J waiver and visa attorney is in your best interest. Our professional, tough J waiver attorneys at the Law Offices of Jef Henninger, Esq., will help turn your J visa into a J waiver, helping you stay within the country.
