This is the visa most companies use to hire foreign professional workers. The job must be professional in nature, meaning the duties of the position are so specialized in nature that an individual must possess at least a Bachelor’s (or equivalent) degree in the field or a related field. There is an annual cap on H-1B visas.
There are also significant legal compliance issues that companies need to know about the H-1B visa, including site visits by USCIS officials, Public Access Files and other requirements. We can help companies with:
Spouses and children (under 21) of individuals who hold valid H-1B professional worker status are eligible for H-4 dependent status.

If you are interested in obtaining H-1B status, sponsoring an employee for H-1B status, or obtaining an H-4/EAD, please contact us to speak with one of our business immigration attorneys.
