    Who should sponsor my in-laws stay in USA?

    HI, sorry to mention the word "sponsor" what I meant was who should be paying for their expenses and stay. Would it be my wife or me?
  2. Hi, My wife is applying for her parents’ visitor visa. She is currently on OPT after finished her studies. She is joining the US Army and will be getting the citizenship after completing the training in 5 months. She is currently not working and not earning. Will it be fine if she shows as the sponsor for her parents? We have joint bank account and have enough money to cover for their expenses during the stay. Or should I (as husband) should show as sponsor because I am working and making enough to cover for their expenses? Please guide, Thanks, PJ
  3. Hi, I am here in the US on EAD (Employment based) and my wife came to US on F1 (student) visa and is now on OPT. I have 2 year old daughter. My Wife has signed a contract with US Army and is joining the training from April 2016. She will be US citizen after her training in August. We really need my in-laws to come here to take care of my daughter and I cannot wait until my wife becomes US citizen. My in-laws visitor visa was rejected 2 times. First it was rejected when my wife had graduation ceremony after completing her Associate degree in nursing but they were denied the visa. I guess the reason could be because my father in law could not explain the purpose of visit since he is not well-educated and is a plumber by profession and does not earn much. Second time it was rejected when it was my uncle's daughter marriage. Visa officer did not give the reason for rejection. I guess its because the rejection from last time. Now, I am concerned if we should apply for the visa again or not. Here are my main concerns. - Should I apply only for my mother-in law? - Should we show that they are coming here to take care of the baby? Lot of people say we should not mention this but this is genuine case where the baby needs someone from the family? - I guess most of you will agree that my in-laws/motherin-law should show the army contract. - I heard that if the interviewee works for an NGO that helps during the interview. How true is this? Thanks, PJ

    Where can I work on OPT?

    I finished my Associate degree in nursing last year. I took board exam but could not pass it. There are very few or no jobs if you do not pass the board exam. I will retake the board exam. so, I am unable to find any job right now. and its already been 3 months I got my OPT. My international councellor told me to let her know if I got the job by 3 months after receiving the OPT. What should I do? Should I just take any job like at a grocery store or something just to show that I am working. But at the same time, I heard that the OPT should be utilized only in the field which you studied. For me, it was nursing and I cannot find job in that. Please suggest.
  6. I applied for visitor visa for my parents in Dec. 2012.I am on F1 visa and just graduated from nursing school. I applied based on my graduation ceremony. Their visa was rejected. My family in India showed that they will be paying for the ticket and stay here in US. Now, I was thinking if I can apply for them through my husband who is working using his EAD for a big IT consulting company. His H1B expired last year. His EAD has 2 more years of validity. Do you think it is a good decision to with? And does the timing seem okay because of the summer?

    EAD expedite

    HI, My EAD is expiring on June 29, 2011. I applied for its renewal on May 19. I accept my mistake of filing it late. I got my EAD through employment. I am on the verge of losing my job if I do not get the EAD by june 29 which is pretty certain now. I checked on USICS website and it is still in initial review stage. I called USCIS several times to expedite my case under the severe financial loss criteria but it is not expediting. They say that the officer has not considered my case for expedite. They say when I called in first time I should have explained to them in detail how I fall under severe financial loss category. I told them that I will lose my job. But they said I should have explained more in detail. Please suggest me how to proceed.

    EAD fee

    I wonder why my application is being rejected every time when I file for my EAD renewal even though the the form instructions clearly say that someone who has a receipt date after July 30th 2007 will not be charged any fee. I already sent it 2 times and USCIS is doing the same thing every time. I tlaked to the customer service and they say that you can just re submit with a letter explainig why you should not be charged but thye are rejecting it all the time, Now the time is running out to renewal and I will have to pay the fee. Did you also face the similar situation. To me, it looks like USCIS is just trying to make money out of harassing us.
