  1. Irrespective of the time taken to approve the I-130, it will still take 16 years for his Priority date to turn up, given the present rules. So you need not do anything extra.

    Husband and Wife on H1B living in different states

    Since you are both in H1 status, the different areas of stay will have no bearing on her ability to get an H1 visa.

    Need some clarification

    Based on his approved I-140 with any employer, he is eligible for 3-year H1 extensions beyond the initial total of 6.

    Travel Possibilities In case PERM/I-140/H1 is pending

    Approved PERM gives you no extensions of H1. You can work forever from India for anybody subject to tax issues.
  5. The H4 visa is NOT employer-dependent. They should have shown your latest H1 approval on entry. You should run this by a Lawyer ASAP. Your family is out of status and in unlawful status. Keep the 6 month limit in mind and get a lawyer involved.

    Refused VISA

    The theory is that you can apply again if your circumstances change, for example, if you are attending a conference. I would wait for a few months before trying again. You may end up getting a sympathetic Officer who may decide to help you out.
  7. India (state.gov) "For persons born prior to April 1, 1970, birth certificates are considered unavailable." "Alternate Documents: If an individual is born after April 1, 1970, and is unable to obtain a birth certificate, the individual must obtain a certificate of non-availability from the local authorities with jurisdiction over their place of birth. In addition to a non-availability certificate, the following documents can be accepted as secondary evidence:" They may ask for a DNA test in lieu.

    Regarding Filing GC

    How long has the AOS been pending and have you informed A about the existing approval?

    Corporation taxes

    If you owe taxes, you need to pay them and have proof of payment. If you have no taxes due, there is no problem.
  11. You do not demonstrate home ties. The VO decides based on the situation. Since you are already here and especially if your university has pedigree, I doubt this will be an issue. Only one way to find out. No need to tailor answers. She should answer based on her intentions and not what she thinks the VO wants to hear. Credibility is King or Queen in this instance. Let us know the result.
  12. "you may be entitled to unemployment benefits even if you're getting severance. But the specific rules around that vary from state to state." Illinois Unemployment Insurance Law Handbook "You are allowed to get both severance pay and unemployment. Illinois considers severance pay as money you receive for work you did during the time you were employed. Since your severance pay is not considered income, it will not usually affect your unemployment benefits."

    GC application for RN working on H4

    Good for you. I would suggest getting a consult with a lawyer who is familiar with the matter. Maybe the firm of Murthy. Schedule A used to apply for nurses and maybe it still does give you some options for the GC.
