Attention H-1B Petitioners! Cap-Subject H-1B Filings Begin on April 1

March 2011Alerts Immigration Practice Alert
We are now a month away from April 1, 2011, when cap-subject H-1B petitions can be filed for Fiscal Year 2012.

Demand for numbers under the FY 2012 cap is expected to be much greater than in the last fiscal year. In light of this, please be sure to let us know as soon as possible if you have a cap-subject H-1B petition you would like us to prepare. Filing early should help you maximize the likelihood that your H-1B petition will receive a number in the FY 2012 cap count.

The start date on these petitions will be on or after October 1, 2011, depending on the specific facts of the case and the actual date of filing.

For more information, please contact Catherine V. Wadhwani at 412.394.5540 or [email protected] , Robert S. Whitehill at 412.394.5595 or [email protected] or any other member of the firm's Immigration Practice.
