Don’t send in your H-1B petition without double-checking the details. You only get this one opportunity to prove to the USCIS that you deserve your visa for the fiscal year of 2016. It’s taken a lot of time, money, and effort to get your visa petition together. Don’t just send it out without making sure you’ve done absolutely everything you can to prove that you and your employer are viable for this employer-employee relationship.
Several details often get overlooked. The best outcome in these cases is the petitioner will receive an RFE response requesting more information. Worst case scenario, your petition gets rejected outright. Even with an RFE, the USCIS views that particular response as a much-needed red flag to get through the massive pile of petitions they have to go through each year. There are only 65,000 visas available annually and last year the USCIS found themselves rummaging through nearly 200,000 petitions.
They’re looking for an excuse to reject yours. Don’t give them one.
