We are now a month away from April 1, 2011, when cap-subject H-1B petitions can be filed for Fiscal Year 2012.

Demand for numbers under the FY 2012 cap is expected to be much greater than in the last fiscal year. In light of this, please be sure to let us know as soon as possible if you have a cap-subject H-1B petition you would like us to prepare. Filing early should help you maximize the likelihood that your H-1B petition will receive a number in the FY 2012 cap count.

The start date on these petitions will be on or after October 1, 2011, depending on the specific facts of the case and the actual date of filing.
