Litwin & Smith FY 2021 Nationwide H-1B (2020) Cap Petition Filing Begins Now
H-1B cap NON-IMMIGRANT WORKER PETITION
The H-1B petition has increased in level of difficulty and the documentation required to establish the position offered or extended qualifies as a specialty occupation. We have an impeccable history of success with H-1B petition filings. Below is information about the process and our fees and costs.
The H-1B is the most often employer-sponsored U.S. employment authorization and we are very successful in preparing and obtaining H-1B nonimmigrant approvals for employers and subsequent immigrant visas and green cards for their employees. We prepare hundreds of such petitions each year. We offer excellent service at a competitive price. We are known for our availability, responsiveness, timeliness, and professionalism, as well as our considerable expertise.
Only those with selected registrations will be eligible to file H-1B cap-subject petitions. We are filing H-1B cap petitions within 90 days of selection in the lottery. H-1B cap petition filing generally has not had premium processing available at the time of filing the last 2 years. Should there be premium processing available we will keep you informed.
H-1B Change of Employer
The good news for an employer sponsoring a person with I-94 H-1B validity the H-1B sponsored employee may begin work with a new employer upon USCIS receipt of the new employer’s H-1B petition. A person previously sponsored for H1B, but not within prior H-1B I-94 validity requires the new employer’s H-1B petition to be approved before the employee may begin employment in H-1B status.
The good news for an employer petitioning a person with I-94 H-1B validity is the H-1B petitioned employee may continue to work for the employer upon USCIS receipt of the timely filed employer’s H-1B extension petition for 240 days past the expiration of the current I-94 validity. The bad news is current processing times are more than 240 days. Some good news is an H-1B continuation of previously approved employment petition may be filed with premium processing for a decision in 15 days at this time.
