With the welcoming of April, Rose Immigration Law Firm attorneys have filed H-1B petitions for our clients. Pursuant to regulation, USCIS will accept petitions for five business days during the first week of April. It is very clear from economic trends that the 65,000 cap will be reached during the early days of the petition filing; we believe the 20,000 masters cap will be reached during this time as well. This means USCIS will conduct a lottery to select potentially approvable H-1B petitions. Like most employers and their OPT employees, we will wait with bated breath for the results.
Rose Immigration Law Firm attorneys are already in discussions to develop alternative plans for those beneficiaries not selected through the H-1B lottery process. Be sure to check with the attorney assigned to your case for more information.
