    L1B Extension Denied and looking to apply Fresh H1B this year

    Good Job. You mention it now. What was the point of a question to which you knew the answer?

    Coming back to US after 4 months on STEM OPT

    Make sure from your DSO that more than 120 days unemployment does not invalidate the OPT.

    Minor daughter (US Citizen) to join school in the US

    Touch base with the firm of Murthy and go on from there. Maybe call the firm in Chennai and they will redirect you to the Office here if necessary.

    Overstay on B1/B2 Visa i539 pending.

    What part of the above statement which specifically states that the individual is SUBJECT to 222(g) subject to that scenario, is not clear. ? The quote is from the Field Manual used by the State Department. Nothing else matters. If the visit is important enough, run specifics by a lawyer. If you want to ignore a lawyer, then buy a refundable ticket and if denied entry to the plane at the Airport in India, cancel the ticket before the plane takes off without you.

    L1B Extension Denied and looking to apply Fresh H1B this year

    If you want a new total of 6 years, apply in April 2021. If you apply in 2020, you will only get a total of three.

    General Question on 485

    AOS cannot be done from outside the country. Secondly does the GC sponsor not want you back? Is that job not available?

    GC process on CPT

    You mention CPT as an aside. Does your employer expect a fee for filing your H1/GC? Did he take a fee for filing last time?

    Changing employer on pending I-485 before EAD+AP

    1. Yes, if you get H1 status 2. Yes, if the employer files and gets an H1 petition approved for you. 3. It remains available to you

    Naturalization and "Life events"

    My 2 cents is there is no major concern. You may choose to discuss the situation with a lawyer.

    I-14 Withdrawal

    You can find another GC sponsor to start from PERM onwards and retain the PD and also get further H1 extensions till the PD is current. The I-140 revocation will only mean that the job is gone.

    H1b Stamping with Reckless Driving Speeding Ticket

    "In Virginia, Speeding is only a traffic infraction, but reckless driving due to excessive speed is a criminal offense." Run the scenario by an Immigration Lawyer before going for the visa.

    Overstay on B1/B2 Visa i539 pending.

    I was puzzled by the reference to work. It would seem the OP has more than one post with a varying storyline. That is why most forums prohibit cross-posting in the forum. In any case, 222g applies to the OP as per the chart.

    H1 to L1; does the 7 year term resets?

    You will be able to get H1 extensions based on the approved I-140. What does the Immigration team say?

Not Subject Alien admitted until specified date; files late application for change or extension of status; USCIS accepts late application because alien established that filing was for good cause and otherwise satisfies the requirements for retroactive application; and application is ultimately approved: Not Subject Alien entered on Visa Waiver Program (VWP), on parole, without inspection, or otherwise without nonimmigrant visa, (NIV) regardless of whether alien overstays or violates status. Not Subject When reading the chart, it is important to note the distinction between being admitted for a period of stay authorized by the Attorney General and being admitted for duration of status. Most nonimmigrants are admitted until a specified date that is listed on the Form I-94, Arrival/Departure record. A nonimmigrant admitted until a specified date must depart the United States on the date listed on the Form I-94 unless he or she obtains an extension of stay or change of status. A nonimmigrant who is admitted for duration of status is instead admitted to engage in the activity for which the visa was issued. In general, students (F and M), exchange visitors (J), information media representatives (I), certain Canadians, and diplomats are admitted for duration of status. The nuances of section 222(g) applicability to nonimmigrants admitted for duration of status are different than for nonimmigrants admitted until a specified date."" Subject to222g
