H-1B quota for Fiscal Year 2016 opens on April 1, 2015 and will go fast!

On April 1st, USCIS will begin accepting H-1B petitions for an employment start date of October 1, 2015. The H-1B regular quota (for professional positions requiring at least a bachelor's degree) is 65,000. There are 20,000 additional slots for professionals holding U.S. Master's degrees. We expect that just like last year USCIS will receive more petitions within the first five business days of April 1st, than there are available H-1B numbers, forcing a random H-1B lottery. When the number of petitions received reaches the quota limits, the H-1B program will be closed until April 1, 2015. Thus, it is critical to file all H-1Bs for this year's cap on April 1st.   Learn More

TEMPORARILY ON HOLD: USCIS will start accepting expanded DACA applications starting February 18, 2015.

If you could not benefit from the initial DACA because of your age on June 15, 2012 and /or the lack of documentation to prove your continuous residence since June 2007, you may qualify for expanded DACA.
There is no longer an age limit! And you only need to prove your continuous residence in the United States since January 1, 2010. If you think you may benefit from the changes made under President Obama's November, 2014 executive action, call us now so that we can assess your case and make sure that you indeed qualify for the benefit.
