H1-B Visa Personable & Client Focused

H-1B Visa Lawyer in New York City

We Can Help You Apply for an Employer-Sponsored Employment Visa

There are a limited number of H-1B visas granted each year, and the process can be costly. If you are a foreign national who is offered a job in the U.S., your employer may petition for you to receive the classification of an H-1B temporary worker. At the Law Office of Robert J. Maher, PC, our H-1B visa attorney in New York City has extensive experience preparing these petitions and has helped many business clients secure H-1B visas for their workers.

To learn more about applying for H-1B temporary worker visas, call the Law Office of Robert J. Maher, PC at (646) 681-1977.

Qualifying for the H-1B Classification

According to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), individuals who work in specialty occupations, who work on Department of Defense cooperative research and development projects, or who are distinguished fashion models are all potentially eligible for H-1B visas. In 2020, the USCIS will only issue 65,000 H-1B Regular Cap visas and 20,000 H-1B Advanced Degree Exemption visas. If you are approved and selected to receive an H-1B visa, the visa will be for three years, and you do have the option to apply for visa renewal.

Some of the requirements for an H-1B visa include:

  • The petitioning U.S. company must employ you.
  • Your role within the company must qualify as a specialty occupation.
  • The specialty occupation must be related to your field of study.
  • Your employer must have a labor condition application certified by the U.S. Department of Labor and must provide evidence that this has been done.
  • Your compensation must meet either the actual or prevailing wage associated with your role, and it cannot be lower.

Generally speaking, for a position to be classified as a specialty occupation, the role will require advanced education, such as a bachelor's degree or higher. Furthermore, your employer must typically require this advanced degree as a minimum condition for employment.

Applying for the H-1B Temporary Worker Visa

The process of applying for an H-1B visa can be complicated. The process requires filing a petition, paying filing fees, and submitting evidence and supporting documentation. Due to this, most companies solicit the help of an experienced immigration lawyer, like ours at the Law Office of Robert J. Maher, PC. Our H-1B visa attorney in New York City has the knowledge and skill to help you apply for an H-1B visa for your employee.
