What’s the H-2A Program? How can it help farmers get legal affordable labor?

Can I get legal labor and still abide by US immigration laws?

Immigration processes and proceedings are legally binding matters that hold people’s lives in the balance. Still, the federal government does not require all immigration procedures to be overseen by immigration lawyers, nor is an individual seeking legal status in the U.S. entitled by the federal government to legal representation.
USCIS normally grants H-2A classification for the period of time authorized on the temporary labor certification. H-2A classification may be extended in increments of up to 1 year each.
According to the US immigration laws, a worker can hold an H-2A nonimmigrant status for a maximum period of 3 years. After this period the worker must leave the country and remain outside the US for an uninterrupted period of 3 months before seeking readmission. There are very specific rules about the time of stay for the workers and how to count it, you can find the information to calculate how long your temporary labor worker can stay on the USCIS website.
We know that the process to obtain workers may seem daunting, but with the help of a top immigration law firm, this process can be very effective and cost-efficient to cover your farm labor needs.
