Role of Employer, Employee and our H1b visa law firm NYC in Obtaining an H-1B Visa

What do we do when we help you obtain an H-1B visa?

  • Obtain the job description and company profile from the H-1B Employer and the academic and work experience record of the H-1B Employee
  • Evaluate the job on offer along with the beneficiary’s education and work experience to determine if the specialist/professional criteria are satisfied
  • Gather documents and data to support the application
  • Evaluate and document the prevailing wage for the job being offered
  • Document the employer’s actual wage
  • Prepare the LCA for the employer
  • File the LCA with the Department of Labor (please note that it takes approximately 7 business days to obtain a certified Labor Condition Application from the Department of Labor)
  • If employee’s college education was obtained outside the USA, obtain an evaluation to prove equivalence to a US college degree
  • Prepare an H-1B petition and employer letter of support and send them to the employer for review and signature
  • File the LCA and H-1B petition with the USCIS once the DOL approves the LCA
  • If desired, file visa application with the USCIS via premium processing. Please note that without premium processing, H-1B approvals are usually issued within 2-3 months from the date of filing. Please also note that the H-1B process differs somewhat for an employee who is overseas, or who already has a valid H-1B Visa from a previous employer.
  • All cases are completed within 3-4 business days from the submission of complete file

Before applying, a prospective employee must do the following:

  • Find a U.S. employer who can offer you a professional job that meets all the H1-B requirements, including the prevailing wage.
  • Determine that you qualify for the job offered, or that you have (at minimum) completed a Bachelor’s degree, or its equivalent
  • Job experience amounting to more than 12 years in the related field.
  • Gather all of the required documents such as degree, diploma, transcripts, resume, job experience letters, and passport.
  • Ask your future employer to retain an experienced immigration attorney who will file an LCA, prepare H-1B petition and submit the H-1B application package to the USCIS on your company’s behalf. After filing, wait for approval.
  • Apply for your personal and family visas at the U.S. Consulate and wait for approval.
  • Attend the H-1B interview at the U.S. Consulate, if required.
  • Arrive in the United States and have your H-1B Visa stamped upon entry.

Before hiring someone on an H-1B visa, an employer must do the following:

  • Determine and compare the actual wage and prevailing wage for the future employee's position.
  • File the Labor Condition Application (LCA) to the Department of Labor (DOL) and wait for approval.
  • Post the LCA for 10 consecutive business days at 2 conspicuous locations at the job site.
  • Perform the necessary U.S. recruitment efforts required by the DOL for the position offered.
  • Ensure that the H-1B Visa quota has not yet been met for the year. If it is cap subject, file by April 1st.
  • Assemble and file the H1-B petition for the prospective employee, along with the proper evidence and fees, at the appropriate USCIS service center.
  • Wait for the H-1B petition to be processed and approved. Please note that this could take a few months if premium processing will not be in effect.
  • Receive the receipt issued by USCIS with the 9-digit reference number and H-1B processing times.
  • Generate and mail a notice to the future employee notifying him/her of the USCIS receipt.
  • Receive the petition approval notice (Form I-797), showing dates of work validity for the future employee.
  • If employee is in the US and the case was filed as a change of status, onboard the H-1B Employee. If employee is still outside the USA, send the H-1B approval package to the H-1B Employee and ask him or her to appear for the H-1B visa interview at a US Embassy or Consulate.



List of Documents:

When going to your consulate for a H-1B Visa stamping, you will be required to bring documentation that will prove your claims. The visa officer has been trained to identify falsified testimony, so it is strongly recommended that you provide documentation for every one of your claims. Make sure your documents are easily accessible when asked for, and that they are in a reasonably good condition.

Please keep in mind that below is an incomplete list, and depending on your specific circumstances, you may have to bring additional documentation beyond what is listed to meet basic requirements. It is best to contact an attorney to review your documents and your case.

  • A valid passport that does not expire until at least 6 months past your stay in the US
  • All previously held passports
  • Photograph taken no more than 6 months prior, measuring exactly two inches by two inches
