What Our Client Say About Us

Going through any immigration process can be very stressful and time consuming (especially post COVID). Skeptical of lawyers, I opted for Anna and her team for my case after our initial report. Nothing was sugarcoated regarding my case or the process; her and her team were able to handled my case professionally and with the outmost communication (as possible).

Though I mostly communicated with Daniel via email and occasionally phone calls, he handle the process with the outmost integrity and support. They (him and Anna) explained the process and told me what we could possibly expect and not just what I wanted to hear (or had heard from other lawyers). Aware of the complexity of my case, they made the process as easy and smooth as possible and explained to me what was needed and expected of me.

Fees are reasonable and explained to you upfront or as they come (e.g., expedited process fees and documents).

North County Immigration has amazing customer service and super knowledgeable staff! I worked with a number of other immigration lawyers in the past, but Anna Hysell is by far superior. I was referred to Anna through another former client of hers that spoke volumes about her. I was able to get an appointment within a day. She is very detailed and was able to give me several solutions. The best part is her fees are very reasonable, even lower than some of her competitors. So you are getting the best help at an affordable price. Definitely call you because you won’t regret it!

H2B Visa Lawyer FAQs

What is an H2B visa?

An H2B visa is a non-immigrant visa category that allows foreign nationals to temporarily work in the United States in non-agricultural positions. These positions typically involve industries experiencing seasonal or temporary shortages of domestic workers, such as hospitality, landscaping, construction, and others. H2B visas are granted for a specific period of employment, usually up to one year, with the possibility of extensions under certain conditions.

Who is eligible to apply for a H2B visa?

Eligibility for an H2B visa is typically determined by several factors:

Job Offer: Applicants must have a valid job offer from a U.S. employer for a temporary or seasonal non-agricultural position.

Temporary Need: The employment opportunity must be temporary in nature, with a defined start and end date, and must meet the seasonal or peak-load needs of the employer.

Qualifications: Applicants must possess the necessary skills, experience, or training required for the job. Employers may specify certain qualifications or certifications as prerequisites for the position.

Labor Certification: Employers must obtain a temporary labor certification from the Department of Labor (DOL) to demonstrate that there are not enough U.S. workers available to fill the position and that hiring foreign workers will not adversely affect the wages and working conditions of similarly employed U.S. workers.

Admissibility: Applicants must also meet general admissibility requirements for entry into the United States, including passing a background check, medical examination, and demonstrating that they intend to return to their home country upon the completion of their authorized stay in the U.S.

What types of employment opportunities can I pursue with an H2B visa?

H2B visas are typically granted for temporary or seasonal employment positions in industries experiencing a shortage of domestic workers. These may include jobs in hospitality, tourism, landscaping, construction, and other similar sectors.

How long can I stay in the United States with an H2B visa?

The duration of stay permitted under an H2B visa is determined by the period of employment specified in the approved petition, up to a maximum of one year. However, extensions may be possible for a total maximum stay of three years, subject to certain conditions.

Can my family accompany me to the United States on an H2B visa?

While H2B visa holders may not bring dependents (spouse and children) to the United States under the H2B visa category, they may be eligible for derivative visas, such as the H4 visa, which allows them to accompany the primary H2B visa holder.

What is the process for obtaining an H2B visa?

The process for obtaining an H2B visa involves several steps, including securing a job offer from a U.S. employer, filing a petition with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), obtaining a temporary labor certification from the Department of Labor (DOL), and attending a visa interview at a U.S. embassy or consulate.

What happens if my H2B visa expires before I leave the United States?

If your H2B visa expires while you are in the United States, you may be considered unlawfully present. It’s important to adhere to the terms of your visa and depart the country before the expiration date to avoid potential immigration consequences. Extensions or changes of status may be possible in certain circumstances, but it’s advisable to consult with an immigration attorney for guidance.
