Introduction to the H-1B Lottery Process at Reddy & Neumann, P.C.

Navigating the H-1B visa lottery can be a complex and daunting process, but with Reddy & Neumann, P.C. at your side, it becomes a streamlined and manageable journey. Our team guides companies and their employees through each crucial step, ensuring a thorough and compliant application. Here’s how we make it happen:

Preparation for Electronic Filing: As the electronic filing window approaches, we proactively send instructions for the creation of the required myUSCIS account. This enables our office to efficiently submit the registration on your company’s behalf, ensuring timely and correct entry into the lottery.

Post-Selection Action Plan: If your registration is selected, our process is meticulously designed to gather all necessary information swiftly. The employer will receive an email from us requesting details to initiate the Labor Condition Application (LCA). Simultaneously, we reach out to the employee with clear instructions for completing our comprehensive I-129 questionnaire.

LCA and Documentation: We take the lead in initiating and reviewing the LCA, ensuring its accuracy and compliance. While waiting for the LCA (typically a 7 to 10-day process), we work on drafting and reviewing the I-129 form and the employer’s letter of support. These documents, once finalized, are forwarded to the company for signatures, along with an invoice and detailed instructions for the required filing fee checks.

Continuous Follow-Up: Our team remains actively involved, following up for any missing documents and providing guidance on compliance with LCA posting requirements. The certified LCA will be sent for signature, and a scanned copy can be returned to us via email.

Finalization and Filing of the H-1B Petition: Upon receiving all documents, we prepare the H-1B petition, which undergoes a thorough review by our attorneys. We’ll reach out if there are any concerns or additional information needed before filing. Once everything is in order, we file the petition with the appropriate USCIS office and keep you updated on its progress.

Additional Services for Dependents: If there’s a need for an H-4 change of status for a spouse and/or children who are in the United States, we can manage this concurrently, providing a comprehensive solution for your immigration needs.

At Reddy & Neumann, P.C., our commitment is not just to file a petition but to be your trusted partner throughout this journey. We understand the importance of this process to the company and the employee, and we strive to make it as smooth and successful as possible.
