I would like to encourage you, to now consider preparing for their H-1B cap visas, for the fiscal year 2013 (FY2013).
Last year, in the fiscal year 2012 (FY12), the H1B cap was reached sooner than anticipated compared to the previous fiscal year 2011 (FY2011). The usage of cap numbers depends on the state of the economy.As the economy improves (the U.S. economy is currently improving), the H-1B cap numbers usage increases, as more employers file for their H-1B employees, thus the cap for the H-1B is reached quicker.If you have not filed your H-1B petition, and the cap has been reached, then you must wait until April 1, 2013 before you can file again (and October 1, 2013 before you can start work under the H-1B FY2014).
Because there is no way to accurately predict the length of the H-1B cap season, I encourage you to start the process now, to ensure you are ready to file your H-1B petition with USCIS on April 2, 2012. There can be many documents required to prepare an H1B case, and there is always a variety of details in each case. If a case is begun in advance, it can proceed in a careful, less stressful manner. It is also worth remembering, the H-1B start date is October 1, 2012 (you cannot commence work under the H-1B cap until this date). Therefore, you must ensure, your current legal status remains in status (does not expire) until October 1, 2012, if you are currently inside the U.S.
Feel free to contact me for a free legal consultation, to go through the H-1B cap process with you, whether you are currently inside or outside the U.S.
