    Ask the cruise line whether you can enter Mexico without a visa for Mexico or the USA?

    Perm 2008

    Once PERM is approved, the I-140 has to be filed within 6 months or that PERM approval is redundant.

    Employer Withdrawn Approved I140 within 6 months

    That ability will go if the I-140 is withdrawn before 180 days.

    Travel when F1 to H4 and EAD is pending

    1. Many months. 2. She can either leave and return with the H4 visa and reapply for the EAD or she can stay based on the pending COS to H4. 3. No crystal ball. COS to H4 is merely a status change and implies no petition approval. She can leave and return with the H4 visa any time and show your H1 petition approval to come back. 4. See 3. Nothing called applying for H4 from India unless you mean an H4 visa stamp.
  5. 1. That's too optimistic and unlikely. a. You can file it this month and stop working after your H1 ends and wait for the COS to be approved which will take quite a few months. b. Of course. 2. It will still take many months as the COS has to be approved first. 3. 6 months plus. 4. you can file it. https://www.uscis.gov/i-539 Return with an H4 visa in August and apply for the EAD.

    You can retain the PD for a subsequent filing. Companies which file many I-140,s like to revoke existing I-140,s to get a handle on the numbers.

    I-797B Validity

    You should seek guidance from a Lawyer. The recent rules mandate that you work for the initial H1 sponsor at least once for you to be considered cap counted. If the original sponsor wants to file for you, you may be OK besides having got the Visa stamped. As regards the time frame, once cap counted and considered so there is no time limit as long as the rules do not change in the future.
  10. YES. The date when the application is accepted by them at the first instance is the PD. For F2A the wait has been almost uniformly 2 years most of the time.

    Father got GC, which insurance to buy that will cover him now?

    One can claim the advance Credit in the form of a refund at the year-end or one can have the Government pay the difference monthly.

    H1B and EAD

    You can use Advance Parole to return.
  13. Companies do outsource payroll. You are overthinking this. Just fill up whatever the fact is.
  14. If it was current at that time and processed future retrogression does not affect you. Let us know.
