Getting the LCA In Hand Before April 1 – Submit your completed H-1B petition for delivery on April 2nd 2007

VIA AILA

Because you cannot submit an LCA earlier than six
months prior to the beginning date of the period of intended employment
(20 CFR § 655.730(b)), if you want your LCA in hand before April 1,
then set your employment start date on the LCA for a date in September,
and set the expiration date for a date no more than three years hence.
File the I-129 with a start date of October 1, but with an expiration
date that coincides with the expiration date of the LCA. You will lose
a couple of days on the back end of the petition by doing this, but you
will get the LCA filed and back before April 1.

Example:

LCA start date: 9/1/07

LCA end date: 8/31/10

Form I-129 start date: 10/1/07

Form I-129 end date: 8/31/10
