Green Card Options for Entrepreneurs - Recording (.MP3)
2:00 PM (ET)
Once company founders have navigated the many obstacles involved with securing a nonimmigrant visa while maintaining equity in their company, entrepreneurs are then faced with an even more limited number of options for pursuing permanent residence in the United States. Our experts will discuss strategies for the most promising green card categories for entrepreneurs and current adjudication trends practitioners need to know. They also will discuss considerations such as maintaining nonimmigrant status throughout the various processes and visa backlogs. This intermediate-level panel presents a discussion of green card options specifically for foreign nationals who are trying to continue operating their businesses in the United States while maintain their ownership and pursuing permanent residency.
