Helping You from Start to Finish

H-2B nonimmigrant visas allow employers to hire foreign workers and bring them to the country for a temporary job that is not agricultural. Many employers in the agricultural sector, however, do utilize this program; for example: seafood processors and the forestry industry both utilize this program to bring in temporary, seasonal workers.

In order to qualify, an employer must show that there are not enough U.S. workers who are willing, qualified, or available to do the temporary work, that the wages and working conditions of similarly employed U.S. workers will not be adversely affected, and that the need for labor is indeed for a temporary time. Temporary and work placement agencies are not eligible for this program. H-2B nonimmigrant visas allow employers to hire foreign workers and bring them to the country for a temporary job that is not agricultural.

The need for labor is considered to be temporary if it is:

  • A one-time occurrence: The employer has not employed workers for labor in the past and will not need to hire workers to perform the labor in the future, or that a temporary event of short duration has created the need for workers.
  • Seasonal: The need for service or labor is tied to a season of the year or event / pattern, and is of a recurring nature.
  • Peak load: The employer needs to supplement their permanent staff due to a seasonal or short-term demand, and that these temporary additions will not become part of regular operations.
  • Intermittent: The employer has not hired workers to perform the services or labor and occasionally or intermittently needs workers for short periods.

    “Highly professional! Excellent Communication”

  • This entire office is an amazing team and we recommend them to all of our friends

    “We have been using this office since 2014. They have helped us from adjusting my husbands status from his overstayed visa, to getting his travel permit, green card, and now his citizenship! They were able to pretty much do everything for us to where we only needed to submit documents and stay in contact. They made the entire process smooth and quick for us. They helped put our minds at ease when we were worried what could happen while we wait. Very good with quick response times! Very friendly staff! Both Ashley & Jeb were amazing to us and worked closely with us throughout the process! Maria & Josue were our main contacts throughout this as well and were just friendly and always answered my questions. Karen & Ann were amazing with working out payment arrangements for us during a difficult time of a new baby. This entire office is an amazing team and we recommend them to all of our friends who will need to go through these things as well! Thanks for all your help!”

  • Thank you all for aiding us in finally having a stress-free life.

    “We we're very nervous about driving 3 hours just to get an attorney but upon arrival we immediately felt comfortable. The estimated process time given to us from this office was 6-9 months and we finished everything before the 9 months which was amazing. Thanks to Ashley, Josue, Maria and Karen we succeeded in getting my husband's Green Card. Our family can finally live in peace knowing we will not he separated. We have felt like these people became part of our family. Nothing about this felt like an attorney on client relationship, everything was personal and very professional and we could not have asked for a better experience. We will definitely be hiring Ashley again for the removal of conditions for my husband and hopefully my husband decides to do his citizenship so we can again, hire Ashley. Thank you all for aiding us in finally having a stress-free life. God Bless you all! Muchas Gracias por todo. --*The Terrazas family. *Case involved an I-130 + I-485 Adjustment of Status. ”
