  1. Please can someone update on this.
  2. My wife and I works on H1B visa and have a question on Change of Status. What is the best time to quit her job as her COS is in process. No plans to apply EAD and work now. Option 1. File for a change of status first and wait till its approved before resigning from the current job. Does she need to quit her job immediately after Approval? Any grace period? In Vermont Center, its showing 9 - 12 months of processing.Option 2. File for change of status to H4 and quit the job after receiving the H4 receipt. As we have the receipt, is her status in US Valid or Invalid? Do we know, How long are we looking to get the receipt? She will not get any payslips after quitting her job. Does it harm her COS process?
  3. Hi All, Need some help on H1B, I-140 immigration rules, could you please let me know on the below queries. I have I-140 approved from Employer A with Priority Date of Sep 2011. Completed 6 years of H1B and current H1B is on I-140 basis. Right now I am planning to resign Employer A and join Employer B. Once I resigns, Employer A (current employer) will withdraw his I-140 immediately. Questions are: 1. If the I-140 is in approved state for more than 180 days and then if the Employer A tries to withdraw it, then will the USCIS not revoke I-140 and the beneficiary will be able to do H1 Transfer/Extension without any problem with the new Employer B. Is this rule currently in effect as of 2017? 2. Once H1B is transferred to Employer B, Does the PERM and I-140 process start all over again? 3. If the above rule 1 is in effect and if he changes from Employer A to Employer B and, if Employer A withdraws approved I-140 and the Employer B hasn't filed for PREM and I-140, can I still change to Employer C? Will the H1B transfer to Employer C has any affect due to the I-140 withdrawal from Employer A? 4. If Employer A withdraws I-140. Even If the GC process starts with Employer B or Employer C, will I be able to keep the Priority Date?

    H1b Amendment related to Client location change

    Thank you. Does anyone been in this situation? Please, post here.
  9. My question is regarding H1b Amendment. When I filed my H1b. I was working in Tampa, Fl. My employer is from Dallas, TX. In my LCA. place of employment1 is given Tampa client address and Place of employment2 has given Dallas address. Right now, I moved to Dallas for the same client. This client address comes in same county of my Address2 of LCA. Should I file for an H1b Amendment? My current client address in Dallas and my employer address are in same county.

    F1 (CPT) to H1B

    Thank you all for the reply, it helped me find the answer. Please don't confuse, no one is abusing CPT; kindly refer 214.2(f)(10)(i); for your reference.

    F1 (CPT) to H1B

    Thank you all for the reply. Appreciate your time. Yes, CPT job and the H1 job are one and same. Well university don't just approve CPT if its not related to the course work. And there is no abuse of the CPT or misuse of F1 from my side. As some of you have mentioned well, I will research more about CPT and also on 'MBA CPT vs engineering CPT'

    F1 (CPT) to H1B

    In have currently a MBA degree from private university, whereas first masters was in Engineering from public university (non-profit). My H1B was selected in this lottery but why is that the RFE focuses on the current CPT, as I have stayed in USA for more than the mentioned period required for CPT! I work in engineering related field but it's very obvious that, at work we apply management skills, even though one may not be in a lead/manger or management side. Then why does the RFE states to provide course with reference to job roles and also about the CPT being a integral part. If the University has approved CPT, then what is with all this RFE? Could someone please suggest the actions and any help is appreciated.
