23 May H-1B Cap Petition Approved for Change of Status from F-1 to H-1B
Getson & Schatz, P.C. represents a major software corporation in all of its immigration matters. The corporation is a leading producer of software for life sciences companies who utilize electronic records. We prepared an H-1B petition on behalf of our client for a new employee to change from F-1 student status to H-1B specialty occupation worker status. The new employee was present in the United States in lawful F-1 status working for our client in connection with an Optional Practical Training work authorization following receipt of a United States Master’s Degree in Computer Science. The employee worked to configure, customize and implement the Company’s software products for its clients. The H-1B change of status petition was approved by USCIS.
