    I140 Approved Changed Employer

    Your I-140 should be "valid" from the point of view of H1 extensions till the PD of that I-140 is current. Your spouse can file for the EAD if the I-140 is not revoked and it would be unusual for a company to revoke an I-140.
  2. You may choose to get a supervisor involved. You may like to get an appropriate Lawyer in Texas involved For appropriate guidance, and have your employer pay if he is kind enough. The visa lets you enter the country. The I94 lets you stay. Maybe also contact your local house or senate member and see what happens.

    EB1-EA or Eb2-NIW

    Run your detailed credentials through the firm of Murthy or any of your choice. The wait for EB1 is about 3 years and you should bookmark the "VISA BULLETIN" for future reference. The Advantage of EB2-NIW is you are not tied to an employer and can work for any employer in your field, broadly defined.
  4. 2. Your fiance can continue work for the H1 petitioner till her I94 expiry. At any time she can work on the basis of the EAD which should be applied for along with I-130/I485. 3. 6-9 months. Once her AOS ie I-485 is on file and she has the receipt, she is in a safe harbor waiting for the GC.
  5. The PD would be 14 years down the line. The processing will take mere months and then the wait for the PD. This is for everyone.

    Visa Eligibility

    Any information needed in an application form or asked at the Interview needs to be truthfully answered.

    Cross Chargeability

    If your wife was born in Peru you can use cross chargeability for a GC filing.

    H4 to H1B COS

    Does the employer agree with this plan?
  9. Just to add, you will get the H4 visa if there has been no fraud involved in applying for the F1 and if your spouse works for a good company and has an impeccable H1 record. The H1/H4 are dual Intent and so desperation to come over is not a great game-changer wrt an H4 visa.
  10. You will not get an F1 visa. As for H4, it depends on your spouses credentials.

    H1 to H4 to H1 with approved I-140

    1. Maybe the I-140 sponsor will have a job for you. You are basically looking for H1 sponsorship and your employers petition will be not subject to the cap. 2. Getting an H1 sponsor is the problem. 3. Your employer files for your GC. You retain the PD for a subsequent filing.
  12. What was the reason? With 5 rejections, you will not get an F1 visa. If your spouses H1 credentials are Good, you will be able to get an H4 visa always assuming there was no whiff of fraud in the F1 applications

    Working on multiple H1Bs at the same time.

    As long as you have approved H1 petitions with both companies, you can certainly work for both at the same time and get paid. Once you leave the initial company, they are legally obliged to revoke their H1 petition and this means nothing to you

    Credit Card Debt, loss of job COVID 19

    1. Dozens of articles online 2. Only the bank can tell you.
  15. That is a possibility. Why not go through https://www.uscis.gov/working-in-the-united-states/permanent-workers/employment-based-immigration-first-preference-eb-1

    H1 filing and H1 start date after serving cooling period.

    The one year stay abroad has to be finished before the H1 sponsor is able to file for an H1 petition.

    EB3 to EB1 porting

    Maybe the new employer's lawyer will file as a courtesy. If not the firm of Murthy or any of your choice. The Lawyer can be anywhere.
  18. The 6 year period has nothing to do with it. Since you have the H1 visa stamped, you are considered cap counted and hence have a total of 6 years in H1 status left intact. Did B not know that your H1 visa stamp was obtained? Stay away from the process. Tell B that you are interested and let them do the necessary. Make sure it is a legit company.
  19. EB1C needs to be filed by the company. So ask them if you qualify and if they will file.

    H4 pending GC approved

    One needs to move on. Nothing here to do.
  21. pontevecchio

    Re-enter US briefly after H1B is revoked - B2 OR H4?

    You can visit on the tourist visa. Tell the Officer the actual reason for the visit at the POE.

    I-485 status updated to 'New card being produced'

    Usually, this means the GC will arrive in a few days. AOS approval results in a GC. There may not necessarily be an approval notice.
