Very Short and Busy H-1B Cap Filing Season Expected: April 3rd to April 7th (Five Business Days); H-1B Lottery Likely; Last Call for H-1B

By Dimo R. Michailov, Esq.|March 9th, 2017|Categories: Articles, Employers, H-1B, News, News Alert|

As we are going into the peak of the H-1B cap season, our office receives many inquiries about the duration of the H-1B filing season this year or, in other words, when will the H-1B cap be reached?      So far we have been able to compare demand with prior H-1B filing seasons and we knew that this would be a very busy and very short H-1B filing season.    According to our sources (which include clients, peer law firms and government agencies), we expect that the H-1B cap be reached in the first five business days of April with the number of filings over the first five business days far exceeding the available number of H-1B visas.  This means that there is almost a guarantee that there will be a random lottery to allocate the  available H-1B visas (65,000 regular cap in addition to 20,000 U.S. master’s degree or higher cap)  among all filings received in the first five business days of April.

USCIS Temporarily Suspends Premium Processing of All H-1B Petitions

By Dimo R. Michailov, Esq.|March 3rd, 2017|Categories: Articles, Employers, H-1B, News, News Alert|

USCIS has announced that effective April 3, 2017, they are temporarily suspending premium processing for all H-1B petitions for a period of up to six months.   This surprising announcement comes in light of the anticipated heavy demand and number of H-1B “cap” filings and also to allow the government an opportunity to catch up on long-delayed H-1B processing times.

Immigrants in Trump’s America – Should I Carry My Immigration Papers With Me?

By Aleksandra Michailov, Esq.|March 1st, 2017|Categories: Compliance, F-1, H-1B, ICE, News, Policy, Travel|

In the era of increased immigration enforcement under President Trump, our foreign national clients and readers are increasingly asking about the requirements on carrying specific immigration documents with them while they are in the U.S. – whether around town or for domestic U.S. travel. We find that this topic is not very well covered and many foreign nationals are not aware of the applicable requirements to carry specific immigration-related documents with them at all times inside the United States. This article seeks to explain the law and provide answers to this and related questions. […]
