    I believe in karma and the need to contribute to society in experiences you have been through. The experience of a DUI is probably the scariest one in the life of a non immigrant. One mistake and a life time of pain. I am writing this post to make a few of you feel a little better after you hear my experience. I also believe this is doing some good service in return of the stupid DUI mistake I did. Trust me I regret it even after 6 years. It haunts me every time I step out of this country and have to get back in which I do a lot due to work and pleasure. 20 + entries into the US in 6 years post DUI and a secondary inspection every single time. Not fun but its cleared every time. So here's my timeline. Before I start I request people who ask questions to also post the results after the stamping or any delays. Got arrested for DUI in 2011 50 meters before my apartment as I had a stupid flat tire. The cop came to help me and instead smelled alcohol and arrested me. The horror story starts after that. I left india 1 week after incident and had filled the form and marked No to arrest question as it was submitted before the incident. Stamping 1 Sept 2011 - Employer A Officer was surprised why I marked No then he realized I submitted the application before the DUI. Sent me for Panel in Mumbai to Lilavati Hospital - Asked to submit passport in 5 working days after the medical, got visa stamped. No report is ever handed to you. Your proof is the receipt and the 221 G letter. The 221 G letter clearly states which hospital to visit and mentioned to submit passport to a VFS office 5 working days after the incident. I did the same and got the visa. Stamping 2 June 2014 - Employer B New employer hence interview in Mumbai, I had marked the question as Yes and wrote the explanation, also wrote about the medical panel I did last time. Officer asked about DUI I reminded him I already did the Panel. He went behind and told me to do the medical again I asked why he said first was not done properly. This time it was done at Rele Clinic and it was actually much intense than the Lilavati one and also included going to a Physo and they took 12 photos from me. I think the the consulate changed the hospital and hence made people do medical again. I am guessing this. Same procedure as 1 though. 5 days after the stamping I submitted the passport and got the visa stamped. Stamping 3 Oct 2015- Employer B Same Employer - Dropbox eligible - Marked question as Yes - Wrote medical done in the text box which shows up - No issues - Stamp received in 4 days I guess. Stamping 4 Date TBD- Employer C Pending now. Will be dropping off the passport soon and this time its same Dropbox but change in Employer. I will post results when I get. fingers crossed and wish me luck. As mentioned I entered and exited the us 20 times after this and have been taken for Sec Inspection. Some airports its really quick some it took from 30 mins to 2 hours to get a clearance. No questions asked. They simply check if we are hardened criminals I guess. I have a dropbox submission soon and if you ask me if I am nervous then hell yes. I am absolutely nervous the thought of H1b stamping gives me sleepless nights and makes me think why the hell did I commit the stupid mistake 6 years ago. But I am hopeful this time as I have had a successful drop box before this and two normal interviews too. Been in the US for 12 years now so hopefully they will consider all that and make it easier. DO NOT DRINK AND DRIVE, ITS NOT WORTH IT. PARK YOUR CAR AND TAKE A UBER. NO MATTER HOW CONFIDENT YOU ARE. Good luck. I will update you all as and when I do the stamping in the coming months.

    1. If any H1 employee leaves, the employer HAS TO revoke that H1 petition. Nothing new. This was always so. You can stay based on the timely filed "transfer" 2. Did not B tell you exactly what you are asking? 3. If you do not join, you can stay with A as B has made his approach clear. Safe is a relative term. 4. You can have any employer file your H1 and on approval leave and return with the H1 visa.

    Sad to see why people do not post the result after the interview. I will post mine. DUI in 2011 Left india 1 week after incident and had filled the form and marked No to arrest question. Stamping 1 - Employer A Officer was surprised why I marked No then he realized I submitted the application before the DUI. Sent for Panel in Mumbai to Lilavati Hospital - Asked to submit passport in 5 working days, got visa stamped. Stamping 2 - Employer B New employer hence interview in mumbai, officer asked about DUI I reminded him I already did the Panel.

Stamping 3 - Employer B Same Employer - Dropbox eligible - Marked question as Yes - Wrote medical done - No issues - Stamp received. Stamping 4 - Employer C Pending now. Will be dropping off the passport soon and this time its same Dropbox but change in Employer. I will post results when I get. I want to start posting this as I see people do not post after interview and leave others hanging in the dark. I understand how painful the waiting is. DUI is a bad thing, do not drink and drive. It will haunt you for the rest of your Non immigrant life.

    Are you getting paid? On H1, you ALWAYS have to get paid, even on bench. If you don't get paid, file a complaint with DOL on form WH4.
  10. 1 point
    Complain to the DOL on form WH4 with facts only including whether you paid him for filing the H1 petition. They will not take it out on the victim. I suspect the replies to the RFE will make interesting reading. If you are not prepared to uphold the rule of law for whatever reason, leave and return with a H4 visa.

    Have them file in EB2. Accept the job in France . Return in H1 status after the French experience. \ In the meantime discuss EB1C possibilities with the company and THEN a lawyer of your choice.

    If they intend to make their home here then file their I-130 for Consular Processing.

    The most important aspect is the credibility of the Colleges.

    The reason Ponte is asking is that if you are in H1 status, your spouse can get an H4, enter with that, and file an I-485 once in the US, if your PD is current. That would make things easier.

    Give the firm of Murthy a call and discuss the situation. Did the Officer give her this reason in writing?

    There will be no problem in this case. The State Department outranks CBP and they will just get your biometrics and let you in with a temporary stamp while the GC arrives.

    The H4 EAD is UNRESTRICTED WORK AUTHORIZATION. The EAD lets you work in any field.

    H4 status depends on the H1 status of the spouse with ANY Employer. So you need do nothing except move on.

    Based on the facts mentioned you should be able to get your F1 visa.
