H1-B Visas

Experienced New York Firm Secures H1-B Visas for Skilled Employees

Proven lawyers give businesses the chance to bring in qualified workers

Businesses in the United States frequently require workers with specialized skills. When qualified individuals are not available domestically, the H1-B visa allows companies to bring in people from other countries who have the necessary education and training. Pollack, Pollack, Isaac & DeCicco, LLP is an established New York City immigration law firm that gives employers in many industries valuable support when seeking employment-related visas. Having served clients since 1955, we understand how building an exceptional workforce is critical to lasting success. Our accomplished lawyers strive to remove the hurdles that may stand in your way.

Effective attorneys help prepare paperwork needed for employment visas

As a nonimmigrant visa, the H1-B was not created for workers seeking a green card denoting lawful permanent resident status, but as a temporary measure geared to meet a specific labor need. Before you start the process of pursuing one or more visas, our attorneys will walk you through the details you need to know, including:

  • Types of eligible workers — In most cases, companies seek visas for men and women who possess at least the equivalent of a bachelor’s degree and can perform complex job duties related to their field of study. Individuals working on Department of Defense projects and fashion models can also attain these visas.
  • Labor Condition Application — Employers looking to secure visas to admit foreign workers have to complete a Labor Condition Application demonstrating that nonimmigrant employees are not being mistreated. Companies are not permitted to bring in workers from another country to lower overall wage levels or replace employees who are engaged in a labor dispute.
  • Annual cap — Under the law, the annual number of standard H-1B visas is capped at 65,000. Due to the demand for skilled workers, this limit is usually reached well before the year ends. Up to 20,000 exemptions can be granted for prospective employees with advanced degrees. If you’re considering launching an application, we can advise you on how long the process might take.
  • Fees — Most petitioners with more than 25 employees must pay a $1,500 fee for an H-1B visa on top of the $460 form filing cost. For businesses with fewer workers, the fee is $750.

Whether your business is looking to hire foreign employees with advanced computer skills, a strong scientific background or other specialized qualifications, our New York metropolitan area immigration lawyers will help you prepare the necessary materials and advocate for a successful resolution.
