The Law Office of Charlotte Viener has successfully filed numerous H-1B visa petitions for both large and small companies throughout the Mid-South. We understand the intricate and time-sensitive nature of H-1B visa petitions and use our extensive experience to obtain successful results for our clients. We handle initial petitions, extensions, transfers and H4 dependent visa petitions as well as a variety of other immigration-related issues.
H-1B visas are available to foreign skilled or semi-skilled workers who come to the United States for an initial 3-year period to perform services in a “specialty occupation.” There are several occupations that are currently considered by the USCIS to be specialty occupations, and additional occupations may be considered on a per-applicant basis.
To be eligible for an H-1B, one must meet the following requirements:
Profession must be a “specialty occupation”
Petition must be submitted by the employer (some exceptions may apply)
Bachelor’s degree or requisite experience may be required
Employee must have a bachelor’s degree or US equivalent or experience in the specialty occupation
The employer must pay the employee the prevailing wage
The employee meets state licensing requirements if such license is required
