    H4 Visa Stamping - 221G

    Hello Everyone, My family was eligible for dropbox processing. While my wife and daughter got the visas approved, my son aged 14 got a 221G asking for an in-person appointment for a H4 visa renewal. However, his profile is linked to his Mom's profile and the appointment calendar does not show any dates. Pls. refer attached screenshot. Has anyone encountered such a situation before? Additionally, I have the below questions: Does it mean that I also need to take a bio-metrics appointment? Can I use the same MRV receipt that I used before or do I need to pay again? The earliest appointment dates in Mumbai are in August. Is there a process to get an earlier appointment and faster visa processing citing travel dates and school start dates? Do I have to look at a different embassy especially since the earliest date at the Mumbai embassy is late August? Thank You!
  2. Hi, My wife has completed her CPA for the state of Delaware. In order to get a CPA certificate, she has to show one year experience. Can she do volunteer work for VITA and get a licensed CPA to verify her work and give her a 1 year experience letter. Can she get a cpa certificate or license on h4. Can she start her own non profit and offer free tax return services under the supervision of a licensed cpa. Can she provide volunteer accounting services to a public library? Appreciate your response. Thanks.

    7th year Extension

    Hello Everyone, I am in a complex scenario and request your advise on the same. I am in US and my family is in India. All of us have a valid visa stamping till 01/06/2013 which is when my 6th year of H-1Bexpires. My family is coming back to US on 09/07/2012. All of us are again leaving US on 11/30/2012 and re-entering on 01/04/2013, which is just two days before the visa expiry date of 01/06/2013. I am eligible to file a 7th year extension based on the 365 day PERM rule. Below are the questions: 1. Can I file an extension for my dependents before 09/07/2012 while they are in India. Note that they still have a H4 visa valid till 01/06/2013. 2. If I file an extension after 09/07/2012 and the extension is still pending while I re-enter US on 01/04/2013, my I94 will be issued just for two days ending 01/06/2013. However, my stay in US will be legal even after 01/06/2013 till a decision is taken on my application. Is this correct. 3. Lets say I file an extension after 09/07/2012 and the extension is approved before my re-entry into US. Also, the attorney couriered me the approval notice and I am carrying it with me during my re-entry. 3a. Will I get a I94 expiring 01/06/2013 or expiring 01/06/2014 (expiry date on approval notice). 3b. I have heard the validity start date on the petition plays a crucial role. If the validity start date is 01/07/2013, will my stay in US be legal since I have an approved petition or will the 01/06/2013 I-94 supercede the 01/06/2014 I-94. 3c. In such a case, do I have to reenter US only on or after 01/07/2013 ? 3d. Does it matter whether or not I do the stamping based on the new approval ? 4. Lets say I file an extension after 09/07/2012 and the extension is approved JUST before my re-entry into US. Thus, at the time of re-entry I am not carrying my new approval, though I have a valid visa till 01/06/2013. I will hence get a I94 expiring 01/06/2013. Will my stay in US be legal since I have an approved petition or will the 01/06/2013 I-94 supercede the 01/06/2014 I-94. In such a case, do I have to reenter US only on or after 01/07/2013 ? Thanks a lot for your cooperation.
