Why get an H-2B 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.

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.

“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.”
