Case Study: Specialty Occupation Issue Prevented

Specialty Occupation RFES have become a perennial issue facing H-1B applicants.  At CCI, we answer these RFEs with an expert opinion letter written by an expert in the field of the H-1B job with extensive experience working in the field including making hiring decisions regarding the H-1B position.  We ask our clients to provide the expert with documentation regarding the position, past hiring practices, hiring practices for the same position in different companies, and a list of the factors that went into setting the starting wage.  Given this information, our experts have been able to write expert opinion letters that answer specialty occupation RFEs, wage level RFEs, and Double RFEs which take issue with both eligibility areas.

Following the first year of widespread specialty occupation issues, we started implementing our successful strategy to prevent Specialty Occupation RFEs.  Instead of waiting for USCIS to take issue with the job, we provide an expert opinion letter addressing both specialty occupation and wage level issues right away with the initial petition.  It works! 

Whether you have received a Specialty Occupation RFE or have yet to submit a complete petition, we can help.  Some cases are more vulnerable to these issues than others, and every situation requires its own unique approach.
