    Actually an H-1B is easier, but if your friend does not meet the educational requirements and/or the job is not a "specialty occupation" it's not going to work.

    As to "everyone does it" I would suggest that you discuss this with an attorney. To be honest with you, it may present future issues for your friend when he is interviewed for his H-2B or future immigration benefits. Tread with care!

    Can't do that, because it would be visa fraud (using a visa status outside of its purposes). If his J visa expires before his H-2B visa starts, then whoever prepared the H-2B should have had a start date near the expiration date of the J. However, you cannot obtain a B visa if your intent is to use it as a gateway to another visa status, only to retain lawful status. As it is only two months, your relative may want to consider leaving the U.S. until he can begin work with his H-2B. By the way, why the H-2B after the J?
