H-1B Visa Attorneys in Seattle & Vancouver

Visas for Professionals

Choosing a law firm for your business immigration needs is an important decision. Millar & Hayes takes pride in our dedication, success, and experience in the field of business immigration law.

Because there is a cap on the number of H-1B visas available each year, it is important to ensure that your application is properly prepared and filed so that it isn't rejected. If you are looking to obtain a H-1B visa, our Seattle immigration lawyers can work with you to:

  • Keep you up to date on information regarding the H-1B visa
  • Guide you through the application process, increasing your chances of success
  • Explain the application thoroughly, including the Labor Condition Application
  • Help your family members apply for H-4 visas

What are the eligibility requirements?

Specialty Occupation: The visa applicant must work in a "specialty occupation" as defined by law and regulations. Our attorneys have successfully completed cases for a wide array of companies and professional workers such as:

  • Professors
  • Researchers and analysts
  • Engineers
  • Programmers
  • Hospitals, registered nurses, and other healthcare workers
  • Investors and trading companies
  • Musicians and other artists
  • Religious workers
  • Journalists
  • Management consultants
  • Accountants

Labor Condition Application

Before filing an H-1B visa petition, employers must first prepare the Labor Condition Application. In this document, the employer must attest that they will pay the H-1B worker no less than what similarly situated workers are earning. We can guide you through the process of filing with the Department of Labor.

H-1B Visa Portability

After obtaining an H-1B visa, the employee is allowed to work only for the sponsoring employer. In some situations, however, an H-1B visa may be transferred from one employer to another once the employee is present in the United States. Our legal team at Millar & Hayes is skilled and knowledgeable when it comes to these matters and we can successfully guide you through the process.
