Liu & Associates
H-1B cases, like other types of cases, are professionally handled by an experienced attorney in our law firm. At each step of the process, employers and beneficiaries will be contacted and advised by an experienced attorney, NOT a paralegal, law clerk, or legal assistant. For more details, please see the Step by Step H-1B Processing Flowchart.
Yes, a foreign H-1B worker can work part-time, but the work hours must be specified in the H-1B petition.
As long as the employer/employee relationship exists in compliance with the H-1B requirements, you are in valid status. Just like other workers, you may be on vacation, sick/maternity/paternity leave, on strike, or otherwise inactive without affecting your status.
Yes, you may change status to H-1B even after you filed immigrant petition. Although H-1B is a non- immigrant visa, it allows immigrant intent and an H-1B petition cannot be denied on the immigrant intent basis.
