    DWI First Offense

    1. Which State? 2. Did the DA's Office give you an option of a plea bargain when you say 12 months probation or 12 days jail? 3. Do you have a DUI Lawyer?

    Is Immigrant Visa affected by Proclamation

    Effective May 4, the entry into the United States of certain nonimmigrant travelers who have been physically present in India is suspended by Presidential Proclamation. U.S. citizens, lawful permanent residents (LPR), and immigrants are not subject to the proclamation. Yes. They can fly directly to the USA. The sealed envelopes will be taken on entry and they will get their GC and SSA card within a few days at the address of record here.

    H4 EAD RFE

    They are asking for proof that you are in H4 status now and you can show them evidence in the form of the I94 you got on the last admission.
  4. The fact that they issued an I94 is evidence that you have been legal all this time. Their usual way is to issue the document from the date of approval. You have nothing to worry about.
  5. I think you will be fine. Have a lawyer look over the timeline and make sure. Transgressions by spouses of US Citizens are not treated with great severity.
  6. You are on the forum of the Murthy Immigration Firm. Get in touch with them.
  7. You should discuss the situation with an Immigration Lawyer first before applying. My 2 cents is that this should not prevent you from getting a GC.
  8. Your employer may have been kind enough to file your EB2 NIW petition and maybe even pay for it. EB2 NIW does not need a specific job offer though you are expected to work in the same field.

    Travel to India

    Her H4 status extension is irrelevant to returning from travel abroad. In all such cases, one needs a valid H4 visa STAMP and your H1 approval to return.
  10. Since the case was dismissed, you would be fine in any case. Explore the possibility of expunging the arrest record since the case was dismissed. Once done, private employers will not be able to access the arrest record. Even if they find out, it should not matter. Obviously, mention all information asked for by the employer. Make sure you hang on to the court disposition records.

    H1B Transfer after I-140 revoked

    You still retain the PD irrespective of who files for your I-140 and it is immaterial EB3 OR EB2. C will presumably file an appropriate I-140 with Concurrent AOS, EAD, etc. Major decisions like this mandate a discussion with your own Immigration Lawyer.

    i-140 outside of US with capexempt expiring

    You have 4 more years allowed in H1 status with any employer over any period of time subject to future changes in the law.

    E3-D When can they work

    "E-3D spouses may apply for employment authorization by filing Form I-765 with USCIS after arriving in the U.S. in E-3D status. A spouse may begin working once the I-765 is approved and an Employment Authorization Document (EAD) is issued."

    Working from India while on H-1B during COVID

    1. Yes. There will be tax implications. Also, your H1 status is not relevant in India 2. As long as the company lets you
