Why get an H-1B visa

An H1-B Visa Lawyer will help allow U.S. employers to temporarily hire foreign workers in specialty occupations. A "specialty occupation" is defined as one that requires theoretical and practical application of highly specialized knowledge in a field such as: biotechnology, chemistry, architecture, engineering, mathematics, physical sciences, social sciences, medicine and health, education, law, accounting, business specialties, theology, and the arts. It further requires a minimum educational level of a bachelor's degree or equivalent. Similarly, if a license is required to practice in the worker’s particular field then the worker must also obtain the required state license.

To get an H-1B visa, there must be a job offer and an employer who is willing to sponsor a person by filing a petition with the U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Service (“USCIS”). The H-1B work visa requires a sponsoring U.S. employer; the sponsor must file a labor condition application with the Department of Labor. The H-1B employer must then file an I-129 petition with the USCIS. A person may hold H-1B status for a maximum of six years, and it may be issued in increments of up to three years by the USCIS. An employee may receive extensions of H-1B status beyond six years in certain circumstances, if s/he is in the process of applying for a green card.

Fast and very very reasonable. My lawyer was excellent

Stuart G.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Excellent, straightforward service which was simple to use particularly when under a tight deadline.

Lori L.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
I am so thankful to have located Law Trades. As an indie publisher, I have a tight budget and help with legal documents can "break the bank". Law Trades offered a reasonable price - suitable for a small business like mine. The service was extremely professional and I was able to receive the legal document I needed in less than 1 week.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
So far has been an excellent experience. My LawTrades attorney is excellent at what he does, has fair pricing, and is as excited to work with our company as we are to build it. LawTrades also has excellent customer support, and I've enjoyed using your interface as well to track invoices. The only thing I would want is the ability to delete projects, and to use your website on my tablet. Other than that, great work. Keep it up! I've already mentioned you to other founders and colleagues!

Justin P.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
I had an excellent experience with LawTrades. From the initial enquiry they located a lawyer (Sylvain) who was ideal for my needs. Sylvain was very friendly, efficient and provided a great service at a great price. I would not hesitate to use LawTrades or Sylvain again. The administration and process from start to finish was made as easy as possible by the LawTrades team.

Michael A.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Have been working with them since back in 2015. They're building an amazing platform that's really going to disrupt how the legal practice has been looking at for quite a while. Big fan of what they are in the process of building, and the product itself is great too. Recommend this to anyone who's looking for a lawyer, but might be confused about where to start. LawTrades makes it super easy.

Frequently asked
questions

How many H-1B visas are granted each year?
The number of H-1B visas granted each year is capped at 65,000. However, there are some applicants that are exempt from the cap. Beneficiaries with a U.S. master's degree or higher are exempt from the cap if it is filed among the first 20,000 petitions available. Also exempt are H-1B applicants employed or petitioned on behalf of an “institute of higher education.”
What happens when the annual H-1B quota is reached?
USCIS announces a cutoff date when they reach their quota. Petitions filed before the cutoff date, but after the quota has been used, will be held for processing until the following October.
Can the family of a H-1B visa holder come to the United States?
The spouse and unmarried children of the H-1B visa holder have the option of admission through the H-4 visa. However, members on the H-4 visa are not authorized to work in the U.S. Get consulting from our best H-1B lawyers for your further questions.
What is an H-1B Transfer?
An individual issued an H-1B visa may transfer to a new H-1B job provided that the new employer has filed a non-frivolous petition on behalf of the person.
As an employer, what responsibilities do I have as a H-1B visa host?
Employers are required to pay the H-1B holder the “prevailing wage.” Employers are also required to inform the USCIS when there are any material changes in employment. Employers who terminate their H-1B employees before the end of the approved period of employment are required to pay the transportation cost of returning the aliens to their last place of foreign residence.
