The H-1B visa is used to bring exceptionally talented foreign nationals to the United States to work in specialty occupations on a temporary basis. Specialty occupations can include engineers, architects, mathematicians, educators and research specialists, biologists and others. Foreign fashion models can also use H-1B3 visas to work with a designated employer for up to three years.
Employers throughout the United States have taken advantage of the H-1B visa to bring qualified specialty occupation workers to work temporarily in the U.S. for years.
Spouses and children of H-1B workers may also come to the U.S. under an H-4 status. With the invalidation of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) in 2013, provisions of the H-1B visa now apply unquestionably to gay and lesbian workers.
Helping Qualified Workers Obtain H-1B Visa Entry Into The United States
A limited number of foreign specialty workers are admitted to the U.S. each year to work on a temporary basis. In Southern California, we at the Bolour Immigration Group have helped many temporary workers obtain the visas they need to work here. We also help family members of H-1B aliens to be classified under the H-4 category and obtain visas.
Our attorneys take the time to understand the unique challenges faced by all of our clients, including LGBTQ clients — particularly those from countries where homosexuality may constitute a violation of the law. We take our clients' safety and privacy very seriously, and we diligently pursue every available option in an effort to help them obtain the worker visas they need to begin their lives in America.
