Re: H-1B visa maximum duration
H-1B visa holders who wish to apply for a green card...
If you dont not file by the end of the fifth year, you can still apply for a green card, but it creates complications in continuing your H-1B status seamlessly during your green card processing once you have hit the end of your sixth year in H-1B status. It places you in the position of either having to depart the U.S. for periods of time (in order to "recapture" the time) prior to the end of this sixth year of H-1B status, or to change to another nonimmigrant status here until the one-year anniversary of your PERM application filing, at which point you could obtain another one year of H-1B status.
The cost of phase one - PERM processing through the U.S. Department of Labor - must be paid by the employer that is sponsoring you. It is the hardest part of the green card case and legal fees typically run $2,500 to $3,500 for this phase of the process.
