H-4 to H-1B Change of Status Petition Approved for Architectural Designer
Change of Status Petition approved from H-4 to H-1B for an Architectural Designer employed by a “start-up” Architecture Firm. Documentation regarding the nature of the Architecture Firm was provided to show the existence of a bona fide, non-speculative job offer. The Petition was not subject to the H-1B cap as the Beneficiary previously held H-1B status in the past six years for a cap-subject employer and was previously counted towards the H-1B numerical limitations in relation to the time that accrued against the six year maximum period of admission in H-1B status. The Petition was approved for a period of three years towards the six year remainder time.
