            H-1B Visa Attorneys in San Jose

            Verma Law Firm Has the Experience You Need Immigration Attorneys in San Jose

            The most popular of the H-Visa category is the H-1B visa. The H-1B visa is a non-immigrant visa that permits U.S. employers to employ foreign nationals in specialty occupations for a temporary period. A person may hold H-1B status for a maximum of six years, and may be eligible for extensions beyond the six-year limit under certain circumstances. At Verma Law Firm, our H-1B lawyer in San Jose, CA will help you through your immigration matters.

            What are the different types of H visas?

            1. H-1B (specialty occupation)
            2. H-1B1 (specialty occupations from Singapore and Chile)
            3. H-1C (Professional Nurses Working in Health Professional Shortage Areas [HPSAs])
            4. H-2A (temporary agricultural workers)
            5. H-2B (skilled/unskilled workers where US Citizens and Permanent Residents are not available)
            6. H-3 (trainees)
            7. H-4 (accompanying family members of H visa holders)

            What are the benefits of an H-1B Visa?

            One of the most desirable features of an H-1B visa is its recognition of “dual intent”, meaning that an H-1B worker can apply for a Green Card and become a permanent resident, without having his or her H-1B visa denied or revoked. H-1B visas are advantageous to foreign nationals seeking specialized employment in the U.S. H-1B visas are numerically limited for each fiscal year. This limitation is set by Congress and commonly referred to as the H-1B Cap. For example, the statutory cap for fiscal year 2016 is 65,000 and 20,000 for aliens who obtained a U.S. master’s degree or higher.

            Generally speaking, alien workers cannot petition for H-1B status for themselves. The sponsoring U.S. employer must file the H-1B petition for the foreign worker. Therefore, the U.S. employer is usually referred to as the petitioner while the foreign worker is referred to as the beneficiary. To qualify for an H-1B visa, the sponsoring employer and potential employee must meet specific requirements set forth by USCIS and Department of Labor. These requirements include:

            1. The employee must be employed in a specialty occupation, meaning that the employee must have earned a U.S. Bachelor’s or higher degree or equivalent (the minimum requirement for entry into an H-1B occupation is a four (4) year U.S. Bachelor’s degree or equivalent in a specific field);
            2. There must be an employer and employee relationship between the sponsoring U.S. employer and the foreign worker; and
            3. A Labor Condition Application certified by the Department of Labor must be submitted with the H-1B petition.

            The spouse and minor children of an H-1B employee can stay in the U.S. on H-4 status. In general, they can study but are not permitted to work.

            However, under new regulations that went into effect on May 26, 2015, certain spouses on H-4 status are now eligible to apply for employment authorization in the U.S. Those eligible to apply for employment authorization are H-4 dependent spouses of H-1B visa holders who:

            • Have an approved Form I-140; or
            • Have been granted an extension of stay beyond the six-year H-1B visa limit under AC21 (American Competitiveness in the Twenty-First Century Act of 2000) based on a pending PERM Labor Certification application or a Form I-140 application that has been pending adjudication for more than 365 days.
