You have been previously granted status as an H-1B nonimmigrant in the past 6 years and not left the U.S. for more than a year after attaining such status (H-1B Renewals and Transfers).

Employers:

Many employers have contacted us saying they would like to hire one or foreign nationals for a professional position, but have no idea where to begin.

Our service is geared toward both small to mid sized businesses where a President or Vice President does all of the hiring, to larger companies where the HR department simply has not had experience in filing H-1B petitions.

In most cases, we can quickly assess in a telephone conversation what the chance of success will be in your situation.

Students:

We receive hundreds of calls and emails each month from students on F-1 and OPT (Optional Practical Training) and CPT (Curricular Practical Training) who seek our assistance in switching to the H-1B visa.

H1B Visa Holders:

Our service includes processing H-1B visa transfer and H-1B visa renewal/extension cases.

We understand the importance of processing these petitions in a very timely manner, as the H-1B Visa holder may start work for the new company as soon as the transfer petition is received by USCIS.

In any case, we can help. We make the process very easy for students, employers and H-1B holders.

Students appreciate us because our fees are among most competitive in the industry.
Employers appreciate our service because we do all the work!

H-1B holders appreciate our service because we process the transfer paperwork very quickly and efficiently.

    ★★★★★
  • After searching for an attorney/firm to prepare my NIW case I came across Marc’s website (usavisanow.com). I was immediately struck by how responsive they were, often answering my detailed questions within an hour. It took about 4 weeks from start the process to filing with USCIS – mostly because of the time it took me to obtain the reference / recommendation letters…
    ★★★★★
  • The Green Card process, or any immigration petition for that matter, can be a very daunting, stressful and confusing process for applicants. Thanks to Marc and his team, my experience (for both my Green Card application from start to finish, and H1B transfer from my former to my current employer) was none of those things.
    ★★★★★
  • I worked with Taylor and Associates Law P.C. on two separate cases — an H1B work visa and a marriage green card — and was very pleased with the high-level of service they provided. The visa process is very overwhelming, but my case manager, Mr. Dorer, made both processes easy and efficient because he is informative and is always quick to respond to my questions in a timely manner.
    ★★★★★
  • Marc Taylor and his team have been excellent in preparing and following-up on our case in a timely manner. The team has been prompt in filing all the paper work for the Green card for my husband.

Thank you for making this process seem easy!
    ★★★★★

    ★★★★★
  • Have been using Marc Taylor’s services, usavisanow.com for a few years.
