Minnesota Exceptional Ability Attorney

The EB2 Exceptional Ability Visa grants permanent residency and a Green Card. To qualify, a prospective immigrant to the U.S. must show an exceptional ability in the arts, business, or sciences. There is also a requirement that the applicant has a current job offer of employment in the U.S.

Our EB2 attorneys at Tarshis Cody PLC will explain the USCIS regulation at CFR 204.5(k)(2) which defines what exceptional ability actually means. Call for an initial free consultation now at 952-361-5556.
