  1. Find a real employer with whom you can work directly as a FT employee. Your employer A looks shady by not filing the amendment, which is mandatory in your case. Just by looking at your state income tax withholding you can make it out. Let your employer handle the situation and withdrawing your employer A H1 petition will make you out of status.

    Client Letter for H1 Stamping

    More importantly inform your vendor and client(including their HR/immigration team) to look out for any verification request.
  3. I'm hearing this for the first time, CPT at gas station. Why would you need CPT to work off-campus at a gas station? Any off-campus work during F1 is illegal and getting CPT for that kind of work makes the situation worse.

    H1b denail after RFE

    You cannot appeal for the rejection, your employer has to do it and there won't be definite timeline for the appeal, you may get the response with in a week or an year. Find a real employer with whom you can work directly as a FT employee.

    H1 Situation

    I was employed thru employer A until 1/21 on H1B and they filed for my extension back in october and it eventually got Specialty Occupation RFE. Due to current denial rate, I found another employer B who filed for my transfer on 1/15 and moved to them on 1/22. My employer A's RFE response is ended up in denial on 2/6. Now I'm getting interviewed for a full time position at a product based company C who are willing to file for H1. Can they file for my H1 transfer based on the pending transfer petition to employer B? If that transfer petition gets denied after I move to employer C based on bridge transfer petition, will it effect any status of mine?

    Opt extension denied; H1 denied; Options

    How can they file cap exempt H1 do you've previously approved H1? As you're out of status, fast and easy thing is to go out of the country canada/mexico (preferably home country) and get H4 stamping and can come back with legal status, then your employer can file for H1 or if your spouse have approved i140 you can file for H4-EAD.
  10. I went to Mexico with valid US Visa, VO cancelled all my existing visas before starting the interview.

    My I-140 denied which was filed under EB1-C

    Can you let us know the reason of RFEs and denial? If you're eligible to EB-1C legitimately then your case won't be denied.
  12. We cannot post external links in this forum. Google myprioritydate, it seems they are predicting it based on the PD movement trends from the old visa bulletins.
  13. Even if HR213 bill makes on to the floors it will be killed before becoming the law, as we saw earlier on HR 3012. As per some website prediction my PD Jan 2013 will be current in May 2032. I think it is waste of time following any EB2 thread.

    Self-Petitioned Green Cards

    What is the eligibility criteria and only EB1-A comes under self-petitioned GCs?
  15. As long as your h1 documentation is correct, you can travel
  16. sagi85


    1. Yes, if your previous employer hasn't withdrawn your i140 2. Yes, but you need a letter from previous employer that you're going to join them 3. You can apply i485 only if you're i140 is approved from your current/prospect employer 4. Yes, you can

    Inputs please

    You can file FOIA to get i140 copy. Just google FOIA to get i140 copy, you'll get all the details. About EAD - Once EB retention rule is applied, there won't be any problem. That rule is in it's final stages may get applied in a couple of months.
  18. Hi Attorney, I've my i140 approval with my current employer as Job Title: Software Developer- Data Warehouse. If I move to a different employer and if my Job Title is Architect or Tech Lead - Data Warehouse, then will it come under same or similar occupation to file for a new PERM/i140 ? Thanks, KK

    H1B stamping, different client but same MSA

    Yes, for visa stamping you need amendment. The work location should match your i129 and LCA to go for visa stamping
  20. In your case filing LCA would be sufficient, but it depends on your employer to file Amendment/not

    i140 pending since December 2013

    Hi All, My i140 application(filed in EB2) is in initial review since December 2013, my employer has filed it in regular processing. I still have 3 years of H1B left, looking at the latest proceedings H4-EAD and possible executive action on EB2 numbers I'm eager to get it upgrade it to PP. But my employer is warning me that most premium cases will get RFE, is it true? Or should I wait for more couple of months? Thanks,

    H1b transfer -RFE

    Did your employer filed LCA before you started working at the client location? I think Amendment is mandatory starting from December 2015. If your employer has filed LCA and has run the paystubs at your client location this RFE would have been answered. Best way is consular processing so that you can keep your case clean even for future transfers/extensions.
