As higher learning increases in price and competition, you need to do all you can to draw superior students to your institution. One of the ways to do this is by bringing in the top scholars, researchers and educators in the field.
You likely will have to look across the globe for the best experts, and this means facing immigration issues. The complex law and changing policies make it difficult for you to handle this on your own. It is best to hire an immigration attorney with experience in research visas and other academic needs. By doing so, you can reap the following benefits.
Save time and money
A qualified immigration lawyer will know the intricacies of the law and how to properly prepare and file for various visa applications. This greatly reduces the chances of there being any mistakes, delays and complications, which saves you time and money—and headaches.
Get personalized services
Not all situations are the same, and circumstances can easily and quickly change. An attorney can help you in:
- Hiring foreigners
- Determining the type of visa each person will need
- Understanding relevant immigration laws
- Staying up to date on case statuses
- Handling any hurdles
This customized approach decreases the likelihood that you will experience federal investigations and audits, and if they do happen, you will already have well-informed legal representation by your side.
Receive long-term assistance
Hiring the right attorney to assist in all of the university's immigration needs comes with long-term benefits. Your lawyer will become intimately familiar with your institution's goals and challenges so you do not have to explain them repeatedly. He or she will get to know the academic professionals you hire and be able to help them with further desired immigration services, such as obtaining U.S. citizenship.
