H-1B visa is a “workhorse” of business immigration. Employers who learn how to use H-1B visas are way ahead of others in competing for the best technical talent in the world. On the other hand, those employers are routinely put-off and disappointed by the numerous hurdles the Department of Labor and US Citizenship and Immigration Services erect between the business need and availability of visas to be able to employ qualified workers to fill those needs.
ROLE OF A CORPORATE IMMIGRATION LAWYER in the H-1B PROCESS:
We evaluate facts, advise employer on the best way to proceed, let the employer know what to expect at every step of the way, draft and file the I-129 Petition for H-1B classification and change/extension of status/consular processing, and if necessary, prepare the employer consular package for the foreign worker’s H-1B visa application abroad. We also assist, if necessary, with I-9 issues involving documenting work authorization for H-1B workers, especially in cases of pending extensions.
