H-1b Visas

For Those in Specialty Occupations
The Law Office of Charlotte Viener has successfully filed numerous H-1B visa petitions for both large and small companies throughout the Mid-South. We understand the intricate and time-sensitive nature of H-1B visa petitions and use our extensive experience to obtain successful results for our clients. We handle initial petitions, extensions, transfers and H4 dependent visa petitions as well as a variety of other immigration-related issues.

H-1B visas are available to foreign skilled or semi-skilled workers who come to the United States for an initial 3-year period to perform services in a “specialty occupation.” There are several occupations that are currently considered by the USCIS to be specialty occupations, and additional occupations may be considered on a per-applicant basis.

The Current List Includes Occupations Such As:

Certain Healthcare Professionals

Accounting Professionals

Computer Analysts


Database Administrators

Engineers And Scientists

Licensed Professionals Such As Architects And Lawyers

To Be Eligible For An H-1b, One Must Meet The Following Requirements:

Profession Must Be A “specialty Occupation”

Petition Must Be Submitted By The Employer (Some Exceptions May Apply)

Employee Must Have A Bachelor’s Degree Or Us Equivalent Or Experience In The Specialty Occupation

The Employer Must Pay The Employee The Prevailing Wage

The Employee Meets State Licensing Requirements If Such License Is Required

I've had a complicated situation with my immigration status and no one wanted to take my case but Charlotte did. She helped me deal with it the right way. She gave me directions and it helped me solve my issues.

I just became recently an American citizen and I have to thank greatly to Charlotte. The USCIS screwed my case and Charlotte was instrumental for me to appeal. I was not going to do it and start all over again but she convinced me to go ahead. Thanks! She is a pleasure to deal with.

Charlotte Viener (& her staff) saved my life!. I have been living in the U.S for over 30 years, hold a green card, have never gotten into any trouble with the law and all of a sudden found myself facing deportation for something that had nothing to do with me, but with my (ex)husband. I went to her office crying and asked her to help me and she was very compassionate and professional at the same time. We won our case and now I am free to continue to pursue my American dream. Thank you Charlotte.
