    H-4 visa application

    I don't expect ant issue but i would recommend to apply as soon as his travel plans are confirmed, otherwise there is no point.
  2. Best option would be, talk to an immigration attorney first. Good luck!

    Oath Ceremony letter docs

    Assuming you received GC based on one of the Employment Based categories, you only need to carry Form N-445 and Original Permanent Resident Card ("Green Card")
  4. What is the start date on H1B? if it has already started, your F1 VISA/Status is no longer valid and can not be use to enter the USA.
  5. You should be able to recapture any days out side the US during your 6year H1B period and request for an extension for both H1B and H4. If that is not an option, you should send her to home country now instead of waiting until May to avoid unauthorized stay and 3/10 year ban to re enter the country.
  6. Why rush, settle things first and apply after 3 months.

    Biometrics scheduling question

    Normally bio-metrics notices are issue in 2-3 weeks from the receipt date. You can request to reschedule your appointment or you can try walk-in to application support center with appointment letter and request to complete in advance, it is not guaranteed but some supports center accept on a case by case basis.

    Filing N 400

    USCIS will forward your N400 to nearest USCIS field office, most likely in the state you reside, to schedule interview only upon receipt of FBI background clearance at their national service center.

    Visitor Visa for my wife

    Simple answer is "NO", she need to wait until your H1 is approved and apply for H4, unless she can apply for her own H1 or F1
  14. Yes, if you get a regular Indian tourist Visa (not e-Visa) you can stay up to 6 months on each visit.

    OPT Denial

    Your best option is to leave the country ASAP
  18. Sorry to hear about your father situation, I would strongly recommend get your oath ceremony done and apply for your passport and request for expedite service, you should get your passport with in a week, if you have to travel within that week call DOS passport help line (24x7)and they will overnight it to you. Once you receive your US passport you can apply for Indian e-visa (normally takes 48 hrs), if you have time, or else you can get visa on arrival in India. Good luck!
