Immigration Budgeting in Today's Environment

Sponsor(s):  Berry Appleman & Leiden LLP

In budgeting for you immigration program, have you considered the new USCIS filing fee increases effective Oct. 2? Will the availability of more employment-based visas this fiscal year affect the number of green card filings you budget for? Have you taken into account the cost of USCIS delays and backlogged visa processing? Are your recruiters staffed and prepared to look for candidates who will meet new legal definitions to be applied to common visa categories? Will you need to consider alternative visa categories for employees who are unable to secure visas in traditional categories?
