Immigration Issues/H4 application

Question
Hello,

I have question that is there limited any quota for H4 like H1? If i am on H1 and want to apply for my wife for H4 than who can apply myself or my employer has to file?

Answer
No quota for H4; all dependents are eligible for H4 visa. Usually, it is the applicant (H1 holder) who is responsible to apply for his/her dependents.  However, we have had clients where the petitioner/employer filed for the dependents as well - it depends on your understanding with the employer.  

Best wishes,
