Comment: H-1B Witching Hour - The pace of cap-subject non-master's H-1B petition filings picked up precipitously in the several last weeks and unofficial statistics suggest the cap of 65,000 drawing nearer by the hour. As many as 10,000 petitions may have been filed last week and the cap is likely to be reached within the next handful of business days. Most attorneys have heard the scuttlebutt by now and we are sure many have work-filled nights ahead in attempts to get these petitions in to service centers before the cap hits. When do you see the cap running out? Is there a better way to handle these petitions, that might obviate the need for these last minute sprints to the finish? Share your thoughts with us at
