Why get an H-2B visa

A H-2B visa lawyer will help you file a nonimmigrant visa that allows foreign nationals to enter into the United States temporarily and engage in employment which is seasonal, intermittent, a peak load need, or a one-time occurrence. It’s a perfect visa for people who want to travel to America and work temporary positions in hospitality, cruise ships, restaurants and more.

The employer has the burden of establishing that the need for H-2B workers is temporary and is either a one time, seasonal, peak, or intermittent need in the application. Documentation might include contracts, lists of projects and timeframes, as well as narrative explanations. The duration of the H-2B is limited to the employer’s need for the temporary workers. The maximum authorized period is one year; however, the employer may extend the duration up to three years in some situations. You can consult a visa lawyer for more details.

Can an individual holding H-2B visa study at an American college / university?

Yes, but the visa holder cannot join a full-length program because that would harm the primary interest of the H-2B visa.

What is a Temporary Labor Certification?

A Temporary Labor Certification must be obtained from the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) to employ temporary or seasonal workers. The proposed employer must prove to the DOL that there are not sufficient workers who are able, willing, qualified, and available and that the employment of foreign nationals will not adversely affect the wages and working conditions of similarly employed U.S. workers.

What is an Extension of Stay?

It allows the visa holder to stay longer than the one-year max. The employer must apply for re-certification for an additional two years with one year extensions, but on each new application, the employer must justify the extension request. You may also extend by changing to a new employer who had completed the temporary labor certification.

Can family accompany an H-2B visa holder to the U.S.?

Yes, you may bring your dependents while on a H-2B visa. Your spouse and unmarried children are entitled to an H-4 visa and they may stay as long as you have a valid H-2B status. However, they cannot work while in the U.S. If you need assistance a H2-B visa lawyer may be able to clarify some of the surrounding issues.

What is a Request for Evidence (RFE)?

An RFE is made when the USCIS determines that an application needs additional documentation / evidence to determine an applicant’s eligibility for the benefit sought. The request will indicate what evidence or information is needed for authorities to fully evaluate an application or petition. The immigration attorneys on LawTrades are available for hosting businesses and applicants who need assistance answering an RFE.

“Simple and trustworthy system. The project manager through text message is a good idea and helps a lot with the process, especially their timely response.”

“I was very comfortable with the environment it was my first meeting and I knew it was on the right track I did understand my lawyer I was listening I did absorb the information given to me.”

Ori, A. | ★★★★★

“Great experience all around, LawTrades was just so much more personal and much better than other startup/online on-demand solutions for legal work,. Almost feels like I handpicked and hired the attorney myself. The Attorney was available to answer questions by phone or text message, so was the LawTrades rep who set the whole thing up. And when setting up new entities you always have questions, so this was a big deal for me. The Attorney assigned to my project was available on demand to help out explain things every step of the way and I think the guys at LawTrades have done a great job with making you feel extremely comfortable. After all was done I even got an email and a call from one of the co founders of the company to make sure I had a seamless experience. I never got a call from other companies I had used in the past like Legal zoom and the whole thing always felt so automated. Yes, granted Legal zoom probably have way more clients than Lawtrades and as such would not be feasible for their management to call everyone, however, that was a nice touch which I do appreciate. I will definitely be heading back to Lawtrades whenever I require legal assistance.”

“Price. I know what I am paying instead of getting surprised. Transparent pricing I know what each bit costs instead of getting a big bill and not knowing what parts cost what and how much was for service vs hard fees such as filing fees. Also things progressed rapidly.”

Yash, P. | ★★★★★

“Amazing service, i cant get over texting to get a lawyer. it’s revolutionary and can legitimately improve the US justice system for people with no access to quality lawyers.”

“Quick and easy, I used LawTrades and worked with attorney Jonathan Hood to review a NDA. I got my questions answered right away. Arman was a great help making the connection. Would highly recommend the service.”
