Default H 1 b visa

I’m at present applying for a H1 b visa, for USA employment. The INS has stated that I require at least a USA degree for the application to go through.
I have a USA lawyer saying it will cost me up to $5000 to him to find an American university who will grant me a degree based on my work experience. He has stated that through my experience I could get one, so does anyone know of such universities in the USA I can contact. Or any that issue such degrees.

I'm being sponsered by an American company.

Due to the vast shortages of personel in my field, my US employer cannot find the skilled personel to fill the positions, would this be to my advantage when dealing with the INS?
I have articles from hydraulic journals backing me up.

I would not recommend you to "buy" a degree. There are a number of Education
Evaluation Organizations in this country that can verify all your documents
(credentials, references etc.) and give you a education equivalent in US terms. I
think they take 3 years of work experience to be equivalent to 1 year of degree
college education. So if you have experience and have published articles in relevant
field as you say, it should not be difficult for them to evaluate you accordingly.

The straight road is always the shortest (and safest). Good Luck!!

I also wish to add that the cost of using evaluation services is very small, compared
to your lawyers quote for a false degree. You can spend much less & stay honest!!!

You can do a web search for education evaluators.

As for the fee for a degree, if you haven't taken the classes but were given the sheepskin, it is phoney. You are not entitled to aformal degree regardless of the years of experience you have. You are entitled to a conversion of work experience into an equation of university credits though.

Many higher education schools offer life credits. You have to write a paper of x number of words outlining what your work experience has taught you in terms of math, english, history, management, etc. and it is evaluated and then you are given so many credits. But you cannot earn more than 12 credits I believe. This is the equivalent of one full semster of college.
