In just 39 days, U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services (CIS) will start accepting H-1B petitions subject to the fiscal year (FY) 2014 H-1B cap. About two weeks of this time will be used to obtain Labor Condition Application (LCA) certification and prepare and execute the H-1B petition for filing. Because of the lead-time involved, employers should initiate all new H-1B cases as soon as possible in order to file for CIS receipt on April 1st, the very first day that new H-1B petitions will be accepted.
