  1. Multiple posts do not help. Maybe you did not like the response in your other post. Facts remain facts.

    H1B Transfer

    Visa is an entry document stamped in your passport. If you mean you are in H1 status and are working for A and would like to work for B, then B has to file a H1 non cap petition for you and once they have the receipt, you can join B.

    I-539 and visa stamps

    She can apply for the visa when she is there with the same paperwork she had when she got the visa the first time. Visa is a physical stamp in the passport. So you do not have to extend her stay here if she can do that. I suspect it is not a regular B1 but one annotated domestic worker?

    H4 Visa and I-94 expired 362 days ago

    Did he not tell you of the 3 year ban for overstaying the I94 more than 6 months?

    H1-B visa stamping for future dated petition

    Just show the new petition on entry. Remember the computer screen is telling the Officer your entire H1 history.

    Employer control on I-140

    1. You are entitled to PD retention. 2. The receipt # is irrelevant. 3. He can revoke the I-140. But after 6 months you will still be entitled to H1 extensions till the PD. If the previous I-140 is not revoked then you have no problem . 4. That is for the new employers lawyer to decide. Is the original I-140 still approved and not revoked by the employer?
  7. a.b. Please run this by the Lawyer who represented you. c. Impossible to say under the current regime. d. You do not tell us what exactly happened at the Airport.
  8. This forum is run by a highly regarded law firm.

    You can book tickets and leave ASAP. Obviously you would need to inform your employer.

    Port of Entry documents

    Only show the Officer your H1 petition approval if asked. No need to stress over a month.
  11. No concept of sponsorship for a tourist visa. Have her apply and go for a local language Interview and she can explain her wish to see the wonders of this great country. No coaching of any kind.

    Passport name change - new visa required?

    Using both passports should work. It may be prudent to have the Airline make a note in her booking about the matter if they want to. She will need a return ticket . If she has a Canadian visa, she can show them the return from there only if asked.

    EAD for dependent child after 18yrs age on L2

    1. Yes. 2. L2 children are not eligible for an EAD. 3. See 1. I am sure your filing involved a Lawyer and he may be able to clarify many of your questions.

    H4 Stamping while H1B extension is in progress

    1. It is possible and if you explain that you will be filing an extension based on your husbands pending H1 extension, they may give you the visa but only till December,28 and so will be the I94 on entry. You need to file an extension of H4 status as soon as you arrive, based on the pending H1 petition of your spouse. 2. No
