Mergers may lead to immigration law concerns

Business owners in New York may need to be conscious of immigration law even if they are not actively involved in pursuing visas for their employees. Immigration law can have an impact on regular transactions, and if businesses fail to comply with the requirements of the law, they could be held accountable. According to the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986, employers in the United States are prohibited from knowingly hiring or employing workers who do not have permission to work in the country. This means that all employees must have an I-9 form on file with the company.

The appropriate use of B non-immigrant visas

Many foreign nationals enter New York with B non-immigrant visas. There are two different types of B visas used by people who aren't planning on moving to the United States permanently. The B-1 visa can be used by professionals visiting the country to temporarily participate in business activities. The B-2 visa can be used by tourists who plan to travel in the country for a short time or people who are visiting friends and family.

Fraudulent marriage findings and subsequent visa petitions

If a person in New York submits a green card application and visa petition for a spouse on the basis of marriage and that person has been denied a marriage petition in the past because of a fraudulent marriage, the new petition can be denied as well. However, there could be extenuating circumstances that might allow the new petition to be granted.
