Employment-Based Immigration Visa (PERM) Guidance in Kentucky

Immigration visas provide permanent legal residence and employment authorization in the United States. At The O’Brien Law Group, we understand the complex and time-consuming immigration visa process. We know the process is frustrating, filled with lengthy delays and processing times. We take pride in listening to our clients and providing step-by-step explanations of the process.

Extensive Legal Experience

Our lead attorney, Rusty O’Brien, has more than 10 years of experience seeking employment-based immigration visas and representing clients in immigration hearings. His extensive administrative and litigation experience helps him navigate Homeland Security procedures.

He can discuss the process and help you understand what to expect.


Specific guidelines determine if you qualify for an employment-based immigration visa. You may qualify if you are one of the following:

  • An immigrant with extraordinary ability in business, arts or sciences
  • Manager or an executive of multinational businesses
  • Outstanding professor or researcher
  • Immigrant with advanced degrees and performing work in the national interest
  • Immigrant with job offers and a Bachelor degree or higher or work experience
  • Religious worker or minister whose services are required by their non-profit religious organization
  • Immigrant investor with substantial funds invested in the U.S.

PERM Processing – Labor Certification

Some employment-based applications require you to go through a process called Program Electronic Review Management (PERM). This is a procedure by which the U.S. Department of Labor certifies there is a lack of qualified U.S. workers in your job category.

Once the labor shortage is certified, you can apply at the CIS level for your immigrant visa. We can help you navigate this procedure as well.
