a. We will conduct an initial consultation and basic assessment. The company and the applicant must complete two short user-friendly online questionnaires which should take no longer than 5 minutes.
b. Matten Law will make the $10 government fee on behalf of our clients. Note that the beneficiary of an H-1B is not permitted to pay any fees associated with this process.
c. Matten Law will assess whether the job title and/or the beneficiary's major field of study make the application high risk for a denial if the entry is selected in the pre-registration system. Business-related jobs should have a quantitative focus to maximize the chance of approval.
d. The employer acknowledges that they will offer at least the prevailing wage. Note that H-1Bs for "entry" level positions have come under close scrutiny the past few years.
e. Matten Law recommends obtaining a foreign educational equivalency evaluation if the individual’s degree is from a non-US university.
f. Matten Law recommends a comprehensive assessment of employer-employee relationship and supporting docmentation if the individual will be working at a 3rd party worksite.
g. The USCIS pre-registration system requires an electronic “hand-shake” with the employer to allow Matten Law to complete the pre-registration on its behalf. An entry is only complete in the USCIS system after the employer completes this hand-shake.
