Customer Question
Our construction company would like...
Our construction company would like to hire a someone from Germany who currently owns a business in childcare but has ample experience in office administration. We would like to hire her because we have several new clients from Germany that we will be building custom homes for in Hawaii. This person would be perfect to manage the accounts and be our representative for these projects. This person speaks german, english and enough Spanish to communicate with our spanish speaking crew. How can we sponsor her for a Green Card and what is the timeline for doing so?

does this make a difference?
Immigration Lawyer: Jen Marie, Esq., Immigration Attorney replied 2 years ago

It may. You would have to prove that the position that you need her for also requires a bachelor's degree and that you can pay the wage that other people in similar positions in the US are earning. To begin to sponsor her, you would have to do what is called a labor certification with the Department of Labor (not immigration) to prove that there is no one in the US that can fill the position that you have open for her. It has multiple steps but you would first do the prevailing wage I just mentioned above and then you need to place ads, review resumes, hold interviews, etc. and explain why none of those candidates are good fits. It's a very specific and complicated process and I suggest that you retain a local immigration attorney to assist you with the process. Once you complete all those steps, which takes about 6 months, then you would on to the immigration petition and green card which can be done in about 5-6 months plus whatever wait time there are for available visas if the case is approved. Right now there is a 3 months wait time which can vary. So at the least it's about 1 year total to get the employee here, assuming everything is approved along the way.

Good luck to you during this process and I hope this answer has helped you!
