    Second F-1 visa stamping

    You will need to prepare for the interview. Keep in mind that you will not get OPT again once completing your MS. You can OPT only once on same level of education.

    Travel while 485 pending

    H1b and CG process is mutually exclusive. There won't be any effect on your I485.

    H1b Visa stamping

    It's always advisable to go to stamping in home country.
  8. hi, On form I-485 part 3 for Address History question number 9 I came to US in 2004 and since then have never lived out of US for more than 7 weeks at a time. Also, the address I lived at before I came to US doesn't exist anymore. My question is what address do I need to write : a. Address where my parents currently reside outside of US b. the address where I lived before I came to US for the first time in 2004.

    PD to current, while on H4

    Contact your previous employer with whom you have your I-140 approved. He should be able to help you
  10. My BIL's H1B visa expires by end of November. The employer is not ready to file for extension since they could not source a project for him.Right now, he is in a medical condition and still hospitalized.He may not be able to travel back to India by visa ending date and has to extend his stay since he has to complete some more therapies and follow up appointments. What is the best option left for him, if we have to extend his stay at this point? Is I-539 a good option to extend his stay? Can I file B2 for my BIL while he is still in the country? What supporting documents should I include? How long can we use existing medical insurance from his employer before we opt for COBRA?

    L1A to B2 and GC process

    Hi Pramod, I am in situation like you, will you be able to help me with the details if you could do B2 and did it work out for you? I'll really appreciated any help Here.
  12. I'm in US on L-1B which will expire in next 60 days. But I want to remain in US for few weeks (2-6 weeks) as visitor post L1 expiration.1) Is it possible to change the status from L1B to B2?2) Should My COS be approved before L1 expiry to maintain my Legal stay in US or can I remain in US legally while my B2 COS application is with USCIS (decision pending)?3) how much in advance I should apply for B2?
  13. I am in similar situation and been on ead/ap for last 10 years and have never received letter or rfe from uscis asking to do medical again. I though got a letter several years back saying I will have to go for interview and they will notify me when date becomes current. Is anyone in the same situation? It is also confusing that due to COVID I read somewhere that uscis is waiving interviews but I have not got any letter for that as well.
  14. Hi, I am in the same boat as you. What was that you were advised? To change address with uscis or to do medical?
  15. Hi All, First of all I would like to thank everyone who is helping in this forum. Please help me how can I resolve my issue. I got my H-1B stamped back in March 2020 and because of travel ban in India my company did not take any decision on my travel. But in August because of requirement in onsite and at the same time my visa is also going to expire in Oct 2020 they started my travel process real quick and sent me here on Aug 15th, 2020. Recently my H-1B extension approved for next 3 years. Now, I want to bring my wife and daughter here (I filled DS 160s and appointment is in March 2021), so my question is, am I eligible for emergency appointment with family separation reason or do I need to wait until my appointment date? I don't know how to proceed from here. Need someone's guidance please. Thanks.
  16. I received an H1-B RFE because my employer entered an incorrect work location in the I-129 petition. He listed the employer location as the worksite address instead of my client location. However, LCA has the right work site address, and USCIS is asking for an approved LCA that matches the petition. What are my chances of getting approval if the attorney responds, explaining that it was an admin error? I am nervous about this situation, and I'd hate to lose the opportunity due to someone else's mistake. Please advise!
  17. I’m on H1B and have approved petition till April 2023. Later, My spouse H4 extension was applied online separately by herself in April 25th. She received biotmetric ASC appointment only for Nov 5th 2020. Her 240 days after i94 expiry is on Jan 2nd. Is there any means to perform premium processing for my spouse H4 extension? Also, Can she stay in US after 240 days until approval is received? Less

    Being on ADA while on H1B visa

    Is there a threat of losing H1B status if one takes elongated time off from work (3-4 months) on the the American Disability Act? This is after the H1B visa holder has already exhausted their FMLA benefits. HR has said that they will forward the application to the insurance company but can the work place fire a foreign national because they are on disability leave? Thank you.
  19. Thanks to both of you. I am not sure how they could approve so many documents(AP, EAD, 485) in error after the revocation. joeF, Thanks for the insight, i was not aware of the 2017 enactment. I was hoping that a August 4, 2003 USCIS memo from William Yates, which addresses the availability of AC21 portability benefits after the initial sponsoring employer withdraws or revokes the I-140 petition would be relevant to my case. Under the guidance in the applicable memorandum, in cases where an I-140 is approved and the I-485 is pending 180 days, the foreign national still has eligibility for green card approval, even if the initial employer or sponsor chooses to withdraw or revoke the I-140 petition approval. I am probably grasping at straws here and dont have too many options, will see what the lawyers say. Thanks Again.

    H1B Visa Stamping in Nov

    Hi, Wanted to check my eligibility for dropbox and chances of getting visa stamped on my passport. a. My H1B visa expired in Dec 2018 b. In 2019 I switch job and got an approval till 2021 Will I be eligible for dropbox and what have been success rate of getting visa stamped. Thanks for all the help. Thanks
  22. You need to have a lawyer on your side who will sift through the matter. Your employer seems not so kosher. Maybe wait for 6 months of PD being current and switch to a suitable employer.

    H4 I539 valid but I94 on it expired

    Is your employer an individual or a company? You need a lawyer to correct this eminently correctable situation.

    Visitor Visa given for 3 months only

    and yet by your own admission, you had other plans inconsistent with the rules of a B2 visitor....I used to thoroughly enjoy interviewing these types of applicants...
