The company will file your H-1B petition and, after you receive your H-1B approval, your wife should accompany you to the consulate to apply for her H-4 stamping in order to come with you to the U.S. as your dependent.
If you do not initially provide sufficient evidence of an employer-employee relationship and the availability of sufficient specialty-level work for the duration of the requested validity period, you may be given an opportunity to correct the deficiency through response to a Request for Evidence (RFE). Your petition may still be approved if you provide evidence that a qualifying employer-employee relationship will exist for a portion of the requested validity period, as long as all other requirements are met. However, USCIS will limit a petition’s validity to the time period of qualifying employment established by the evidence.
We were retained for an H-1B petition. USCIS issued a Request for Evidence asking for proof that the beneficiary would be employed in-house and that the petitioner has sufficient specialty level work available for the beneficiary. No project information or agreements entered into with the clients could be provided to USCIS as evidence because of the confidential nature of the projects that the beneficiary would be required to work on in-house. Therefore, we relied on secondary evidence supported by legal arguments. USCIS accepted our arguments and approved the application. Albeit inconsistently, USCIS does understand that sometimes it is impossible for an H-1B employer to provide expected documents because of confidentiality requirements in their contracts with end-clients.
Rajiv Khanna, Judi and Anna worked with my employer on my H1 work permit. They were extremely diligent and thorough with their paper work. They guided us step by step through the process. They were extremely patient and were always there to answer any queries. I would recommend this firm to any individual or a firm to handle their immigration tasks. Great job guys! Thanks

Although it was a brief consultation, all our questions regarding I-485, EAD and AC21 portabilty were answered satisfactorily by Mr Khanna. Sure to recommend Mr Khanna for any immigration matter especially if it is complex.
I had an introductory call with Mr Khanna regarding an H1 visa and the supporting process. Mr Khanna was extremely knowledgeable and gave me some great guidance regarding the requirements and timing. I look forward to working with him and his team in the future.
