Last year, we saw an influx of RFEs regarding whether the job in question was specialized to meet H1B requirements. To meet H1B specialization requirements, the position must require a minimum of a US bachelor’s degree or higher, or its equivalent for entry into the position. This must be an industry standard, or you must…

Last year, we saw an unprecedented number of RFEs targeting computer programmers making level 1 wages. These RFEs questioned whether this job met H1B specialization requirements, which states a specialty occupation requires a minimum of a US bachelors degree or higher or its equivalent for entry into the position. Here’s why: CIS assumes that because…

Filing season for the H-1B cap has come and passed. That means this season’s first round of RFEs is on its way. Last year, we saw a spike in Specialty Occupation RFEs that questioned whether a job qualified for H-1B eligibility. For a job to meet H-1B specialization requirements, it must fit the definition of…

Filing season has come and passed, and now it’s time to play the waiting game. Over the past few years, we saw a climb in RFE prevalence leading up to last years spike. That means, if you, or your employee or client filed on time and made the H-1B lottery, there’s a high chance your…

If you or your client or employee has a degree from outside of the United States, or a degree that is generalized, incomplete, or doesn’t exactly match the specialty occupation, you need to submit a credential evaluation with the H1B petition to prove that the beneficiary meets H1B educational requirements. However, not all evaluations will…

This year, we all met the Level 1 Wages RFE that targeted H1B computer programmers working at Level 1 Wages.  We’re still answering these RFEs, and it’s almost time to file again. First, let’s look at the Level 1 Wages RFE: Until this year, CIS has left computer programmers at Level 1 Wages alone when…

It seems like every year CIS is coming out with a new difficult RFE to throw H1B beneficiaries and their employers and attorneys a curve ball. This year, we were all caught off guard by the Level 1 Wages RFE that targets computer programmers. As with all other years, this RFE is an opportunity to…

An important step in successfully answering any RFE is to find out who dropped the ball. Sometimes, the attorney filed the petition wrong. Sometimes, the candidate simply doesn’t have the credentials to meet H1B requirements. Sometimes, the candidate does have the qualifications but the credential evaluation to prove it was either not included or written…

At TheDegreePeople, we see difficult RFEs come across our desks every year. This year, CIS rolled out a new RFE, the Level 1 Wages RFE, that has everyone panicking. No one saw it coming, and it’s arrived in unprecedented numbers. First, it’s important to understand how the Level 1 Wages RFE is justified. CIS cites…

While the Level 1 Wages RFE has been this year’s hot new horrible H1B RFE, all of the classic RFEs we see year after year are still out there. Candidates who received an RFE for Level 1 Wages and answered it perfectly are now getting hit with another round of RFEs.  In fact, this year…
