If you want to employ a foreign worker in a specialty occupation, or if you are a foreign worker seeking employment in the US, an H-1B visa may be an option. A skilled Manhattan H-1B visa attorney can help you determine if this is the right visa option for you and he or she can guide you through the filing process.
Employment visas are often complicated and it can be difficult to determine what visa is best. The H-1B visa is issued to employees with a minimum of a bachelor's degree or its equivalent and only in certain areas of employment. Models of a distinguished nature may also qualify. There is a visa cap each year so proper and timely filing can help your chances of success.
An attorney can often resolve your particular legal issue faster and better than trying to do it alone. A lawyer can help you navigate the legal system, while avoiding costly mistakes or procedural errors. You should seek out an attorney whose practice focuses on the area of law most relevant to your issue.
An experienced lawyer should be able to communicate a basic "road map" on how to proceed. The lawyer should be able to walk you through the anticipated process, key considerations, and potential pitfalls to avoid. Once you've laid out the facts of your situation to the lawyer, he/she should be able to frame expectations and likely scenarios to help you understand your legal issue.
The more experienced a lawyer is in legal practice, the more likely he/she will be able to bring about a successful resolution to your issue. Since experience matters, lawyers who've been practicing law for many years (with a successful track record) tend to be in high demand. You should look for information about a lawyer's experience and ask questions during the initial meeting. It's a very good idea to ask the lawyer how many years he/she has been practicing law and the expected outcome of your case.
