    B-2 Change of Status Due to COVID-19

    If there are still travel restrictions that prevent you from obtaining a flight back to your home country, USCIS should be considering those as positive factors for the approval.

    B-2 Change of Status Due to COVID-19

    As in life, it is often not what you say, but how you say it. Therefore, a B2 COS due to layoff may be acceptable in this environment, but how you explain the request may make all the difference. We have attorneys working on such applications, and therefore, it may be worth your time speaking to one of them.

  6. Hi, I am in process for filing a i-140, country of birth is India. My husband was born in Saudi Arabia. Can I apply for cross country chargeability ? Also he has only temporary birth certificate. Will that be an issue?
  7. Hello, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. I am in a similar situation cited for crime but never fingerprinted and case dismissed. I still went ahead and sealed my arrest. My question is did you receive any RFE on your H1B and were you sent to secondary check at POE? Thank you!
  8. Hello, I have Applied for H1b for FY 2020 last year and it got rejected, even though I have submitted all documents USCIS have rejected my petition stating that I have not submitted enough documents. So I have filed a MTR challenging decision given by USCIS in month of NOV 2019(Decision is still pending). Now for the FY 2021 I have applied for H1b and it got picked I need to submit my documents ASAP but my employer has informed me that I need to revoke my MTR before i submit current one, (Two petitions can't be active at same time waiting for decision). My argument is that when we have two application active with different Fiscal Years(FY's) how could that create problem?

    H1-B Transfer

    Hi I was being laid off from Company A and I was a full-time employee to that company and I was told that you would get 60 day grace period to find another employer and job and I would like to know my current grace period will be completed in a week and is it possible that some XYZ employer has to file the H1-B transfer petition before the 60 day grace period or is there a chance he can still file the petition after the 60 day grace period due to current pandemic situation.Is it possible please advise me and let me know.
  10. An H1 sponsor is mandated to revoke the H1 petition of employees who no longer work there. The AOS is not involved except that they may ask for an EVL in the future if they deem it necessary. The bottom line is that you need an appropriate job in the same or similar field in any case.

    H4 application I-539 denied due to abandonment

    If u file through online every communication is through email not postal mail. Try to contact immigration lawyer .. also contact ur company as they are the ones who file together H1 and H4 together
  12. Both of these are separate petitions, approval or denial of one will not have any impact on the other. If both are approved you can pick which employer you want to work for and let the other one know so that they can withdraw the petition.
  13. You can stay but you can't work after 240 days.

    H4 to H1b Visa Approved but Layoff possibility

    You need to work for the employer on H1 for you to be counted toward the cap. If you get laid off before Oct 1st, you will not be considered cap exempt.

    H1b Rehire rules

    I don't think its good to join without a receipt number.

    H4 to H1b Visa Approved but Layoff possibility

    Unless you actually start working on the H1 for the original employer you are not cap-exempt.

    Public Charge - IEP

    You are good, these don't come under public charge. You are not taking Federal money to supplement your income. Secondly, these are for your Kid and if he is a citizen then he won't come under the federal charge rule.

    H4EAD to H1B Urgent

    1. You should be able to use the H4 EAD once you go back to H4. If you are filing for COS to H4, you can apply for EAD again to clear any confusion. 2. Travel would have been a good option, but in current conditions I am not sure if you would like to travel. 3. Its H1 is approved under Consular processing, you will have to atleast get it stamped to activate it.
  27. No issues, you can file 2 cases by different employers. They are separate petitions.
