Does an employer need to use an attorney to file H1B registrations? If not, can an employer file the H1B registrations on their own, and then use an attorney to file H1B petitions for the registrations that are selected?


An employer can file H1B registrations with or without an attorney. The registration process is fairly straightforward, so it is fairly common for employers to handle this part of the process on their own. And yes, an employer can use an attorney to file the actual H1B petitions, even if no attorney was used during the registration process. (02.Mar.2023)
