You should retain an experienced immigration lawyer, whether myself or one of my colleagues, to review all the facts, advise you, and handle the case. This is not something you can do without an attorney.

The PERM process is long and complicated.

The H-2B visa is like a mini-PERM but it is a quick. You can expect the laborer to start working for you within 120 days from initiating the process. The only drawback is that the work should be temporary, not longer than one year. The work must be seasonal, intermittent, arising from a peakload or a one time only need.
