  5. My spouse is currently in 6th year of H1B with 10 months left, the employer is not transparent and may or may not file for PERM on time. Also, unable to move to a different employer at this moment due to personal reasons. So applied for H1B to H4+EAD COS using my I-140 approval, when would be the appropriate time to notify the employer of the COS. Can spouse work until both H4 and EAD are approved? If H4 gets approved first and EAD takes more time, Is it required to notify the employer of COS to H4 before EAD approval?

    221g Ottawa

    Dear Amrutha, I empathize with your circumstances......am sorry that its hurting you. There are many variables involved with 221g. Statistically determined to be linked with the employer 99% of the time; In that, the employer does not in some way fall under a bright light in eyes of law for having the ability to carry out H1b / other in a perfect way. It also extends to the employer's inability to pay the employee/ tax discrepancies that arise due to non payment to several workers/ improper tax documentation by employer/ failed audit on company/ personal documentation that does not strike good bells (DUI, other investigations, criminal cases-major). If you heard the consulate officer say, why can't you find some other employer, this could be a kind gesture and a clue that it is not your fault. If not, you may be a resource (am only guessing) who has capacity to pay for another F1 and are a good revenue source, thereby, creating a vent there for you to step back, review things, put them together again and follow the visa process through transfer. Alternatively, since you are married, H4 is not such a bad option, as you get to work as well and can switch to H1b anytime. Am simply saaring my opinions and logics. Mind does get tested during these periods, ofcourse. Otherwise, we will never turn to God, perhaps....
  11. HI, I have stayed in US for 3 years in L1B petition. My first L1B extension got rejected and moved out from US last Sep-2019. I am looking to apply fresh H1 for this year. Do USICS has any policy for cool off period to wait for a year or 6 months to apply? Please provide your inputs. Thanks for your help
  12. Maybe you can alert the school that the child is having a family emergency as a result of which he will be joining a tinge bit late... A letter or some support document perhaps.. to help the kid w/o issues.
  13. Hello, Last month the company I was at fired 70% of its employees with a 20-hour notice. Some of us had H-1B visas and are currently in the so-called 60-day grace period. Even though we are not eligible for unemployment, I have read that California laws require employers to provide a severance package to H-1B employee after a mass layoff. Is this correct? Thanks
  14. Hello all, Can anyone please let me know the available visa dates for H1b stamping in Merida Consulate in February..? And also, any recent experiences for H1b Stamping in Mexico
  15. Hello All, I am posting my experience on my H1b stamping with a prior arrest record. Any help on the next steps to take would be highly appreciated. I went for my stamping in first week of December. FTE for a large O&G company. I had a DUI arrest in 2015, completed all pre trail requisites and the charges were dismissed in 2016. No troubles before or after the isolated incident. My interview was short around few minutes. Was asked title, education and if I knew my rights. VO asked if I had any troubles with the law to which I explained what happened and told her I have supporting documentation to show all charges were dropped. VO referred me to get a medical evaluation done which I got done in the same week. Did not have a good feeling after the psych evaluation as the panel physician was hard to deal with and he made an assumption that I do not follow the rules of do not drink and drive (even though i had no record apart from that one misjudged incident). 5 mentally draining weeks later heard from the consulate last week with a refusal letter. The letter mentioned visa cannot be issued because I was found ineligible under 212 (a)(1) health related grounds. It also mentioned that I can apply for a waiver for grounds of ineligibility. Can anyone please advise on what steps I can take next. My sponsor company's immigration attorney is also trying to find the next steps but I wanted to check if anyone can offer some insight in the meanwhile. I have never got in any trouble before or after the incident and maintain a very healthy lifestyle not over indulging in alcohol and staying away for all controlled substances. My hard work over the last 5 years to build a career and a life are at stake now and do not know what to do. If anyone has any insights on how to deal with this situation please let me know. Thank You in advance.
  16. Any update on this? I'm facing a similar situation. Please respond.
  17. COSF1VisaQ

    COS H4 to F1 - Last Action Rule

    Hello, I am pursuing MS and It is my third semester. My current H4 visa is valid till April 2020 and My spouse H1 and my H4 extension are in progress. Can I apply COS from H4 to F1 while the H4 extension is in progress? If I happen to travel India or Canada to get F1 stamping and return to the United States in F1 visa while H4 extension is in progress. Would my H4 extension petition be abandoned as soon as I leave the country? If not and H4 extension gets approved after returning to the US on F1. will I continue to be in F-1 status based on my most recent entry in the US or my status will be H4 as per “Last Action Rule”. An early response would be highly appreciated. Best Regards,
  18. And they couldn't find any flaws so they came up with this --- I donot think this is true. One thing is sure GONE are the days where everyone ( many do not deserve ) gets approvals. TRUMP administration did not introduce or amend a single H1B law. Now I feel they are following law more rigorously. Now coming to your questions maybe look at the kind of documentation your employer provided. This documents technical documentation, milestone tables, funding documents are primary default documentation USCIS will ask in every petition Your employer with the help of good immigration lawyer must look into this.

    Scenario of LLC while on H1B/ H4 (EAD)

    Why do you want to put your names into the LLC? If your wife's have EAD, let them be the owners and take care of the LLC. I am assuming you are on H1 and if you get associated to the LLC, its just more paperwork showing you are not involved in the day to day operations. You might not run into any issues added you names, but I see more damage than benefit in doing so. If both are on H4-EAD's and if their EAD's are stuck in processing sometime in the future who will be the one running the operations then? Atleast on paper.

    Travel on B2 visa twice within 4 months

    Thanks, What is the minimum safe gap between each visit?
  21. Technical documentation, milestone tables, funding documents doesn't look like actual technical work but a sideline work. For H1b, there are specific criteria to approve. As a matter of fact they all indicate different work areas Technical Documentation: Engineering? (Are you writing technical documents such as patents or instruction manuals?) Milestone table: Schedule? (Do you create production schedule? Human resource schedule?) Funding requirements: Finance? (Are you creating funding proposals?)

    I-14 Withdrawal

    Yes, they can withdraw your I140. But you can still use it for extensions with new employer till date is current. Have you new employer start your GC process again.
  24. I am in a very tricky situation. My H1-B Max-out date after re-capturing the vacations is March 13th,2020. But my I-797 and I-94 are having the expiry date as August 20th, 2020. My PERM is still under processing with DOL and there is no chance of completing my I-140 before my max-out date. In this situation, Can I stay after March 13th as I have valid I-94 / I-797 ??? Will it be counted as unauthorized stay ?? Will I have any problems in the GC processing in future ?
  25. 1. Your H4 will be treated as abandoned as you left the country before it was adjudicated. 2. I-765 will still be vaild. 3. No need. Check for the case processing times on the USCIS site and its beyond your processing date, you should be able to raise an SR. Which service center is it? Nebraska?

    H4 Appllcation submitted but no reciept

    You should get it in a few days. If you don't get it by 30 days, you should call them. One other option is to see when the check is cashed, it might have the receipt number in the back (I have heard about it, so don't quote me on it). But I would appreciate it if you can let me know if you see the receipt number on the back of the check when its cashed.
  27. You have to contact a immigration lawyer. You are stay in US is illegal if what you are saying is true. You cannot work for a new employer on an old employer petition. How does any H1B hiring company not know this? Contact a immigration law firm immediately.
