H2B Cap Is Reached for Second Half of 2008

USCIS announced that a sufficient number of H2B filings have been received for the second half of Fiscal Year 2008. The news hit us all hard, both lawyers and employers will need to struggle to keep workers on the job and the business going. I urge employers to write to their elected officials to take action and save our economy before it is too late.

The H2B category is a great option for certain seasonal or temporary workers in occupational areas such as construction, hospitality, landscaping, entertainment, manufacturing, food service / processing, and resort services. Because the cap has already been reached for the second half of FY2008, this opportunity has now closed until FY2009, which begins October 1, 2008. Employers will need to consider other options like the H3 or J1 visas.

I trust you know how much all of us at the Spreckels Organ Society appreciate your incredible generosity in providing legal assistance with the visas required by the international artists last year during our International Summer Organ Festival. We consider it an honor that you and your firm provided this service, and were delighted to publicize your firm in our concert materials. George H.

That's good news on the approval of our 3 executive L1A visas. You fought a tough RFE, but we won. We are pleased to be working with you. KB is also bringing passports tomorrow again to the US Embassy in Tashkent for visa processing. We look forward to his arrival to the US. Sarvar

I wanted to thank again and again for obtaining my E1 Treaty Trader visa for me. The process was not easy, especially since our trade was all based on Technology. You knew the law, and was able to craft an outstanding file to be presented to Immigration. We are now ready to take the business to the next level. Toda Raba

Thanks for helping me with my marriage-based immigration case. You were very accessible - taking my calls, returning my messages and emails promptly. You answered all my questions. I was most impressed and relieved that you attended the immigration interview with me and my wife. You made the whole process streamline and simple. You really know your stuff, and you're a nice, friendly guy as well. Shane P.
