Hi, I have an employment offer in Oregon. I look forward to migrate and stay in US permanently. Looks forward to understand the process, tentative time involved, documentation required (mine and employers), cost (government fees + lawyer consultation). I am currently outside US
Thank you for the inquiry. If you are unfamiliar with the process as far as employer-sponsored petitions or employment-based visas, you should seek a consultation with an immigration attorney. The attorney can assist you as far as explaining your available options, costs and time frame. Many of us represent clients abroad and offer consultations over Skype.
You have indicated in your question that you intend to stay in the U.S. permanently. Be careful making these statements because it could disqualify you for future immigration benefits. If you have "immigrant intent" you may only qualify for an immigrant visa but you may not qualify for certain "non-immigrant" visas. Consult with an experienced immigration attorney before filing any petition or application with the government.
