    Can start a consulting company on EAD?

    dude why do u want to get into the mess of a consuting company. considering the amount of site visits uscis is doing these days,its really hard to maintain one without issues. if things get screwed reagrding paying employees and not following h1b rules even though minor will land u into deep s**t. thats my suggestion. keep urself safe until u get a GC.atleast u wont be kicked out showing some weird reason on 485.

    H1 amendment and travelling to India on same client

    forget everything and file an amendment and lca for the new location. if u are selected in the random audit,they will find that u are not in the location of your approved h1b petiiton and this location is different.this is enought to revoke ur h1b petition. whover siad that u dont an amendment is an absolutely dumb. Ask your B to file an amendment.

    Checking case status legality

    uscis does not have enough time to process the applications. they dont have time for this non sense. its like u are getting info as which number is being processed.no privacy is broken. well checking a thousands of numbers takes u no where.these are random numbers with no personal info attached to it.all it says is the type of applcation and the date and status.it does not link to anyone.its similar to a random clinical trial they use in research.every person is assigned a random number so that no one make sense of the data or realte it to a person.the only people who can make sense out of it are the person to whom the number belongs and USCIS.for anyother person its nothing but garbage.talking about privacy makes no sense atleast in this situation. i am not saying to do it,but suggesting that it would be useless as most of the analysis we make makes no sense considering the randomness of uscis approvals.
  4. forget it and stay here.

    EAD AOS - F1 OPT

    no need to transfer. she can start using GC EAD right after her studies.she will be permanently under AOS until 485 approval. i am not sure if u can apply for F1 EAD. I am in a similar situation.but I got my F1 EAD a month before we became current and applied for GC EAD later.I got my GC EAD later. right now I have 2 EAD and I plan to use my student EAD.

    EAD and H1B with different employers

    u can use ur EAD.no transfers needed. stya with the employer who is sponsoring ur GC as he is the major factor.
  8. suri5001

    EAD or H4

    once u are on EAD, u dont need to have anyother status as u will be on AOS until ur 485 is approved.

    OPT EAD vs GC based EAD

    ur employer is dumb. he knows nothing.u can file for GC EAD. I got my F1 EAD in mid january with a start date of Feb1. my wife became current as of feb bulletin and we both applied for EAD/AP.Both of got GC EAD. If your husband is currently using F1 EAD,he can continue on it as long as its valid. Once it expires ,he can switch over to GC EAD.If he wants he can switch to GC EAD right away which will void hio continue has ts F1 status and has to continue on AOS. If he ever travels outside the country,he has to come back on AP and cannot come back on F1 visa alrhough it has validity. this is the info I got from my lawyer.. go ahead with it.
  10. Filing 485 will not void your 485 status. Its like H1b people not losing their H1b status if they are filing for AOS.they will lose their H1b only if they ever use their EAD/AP.
  11. Hi The best person to ask is your DSO. I am in the same situation with a little difference. I got my F1 OPT EAD which has a start date of Feb,2012 and valid for an year. In feb I filed for AOS along with my wife as she is the primary applicant. We received our GC EAD for both of us by Mar 2012. Now I have 2 EAD's. After reading these posts,I called my laywer to clear up on certain things. he told me my F1 status does not get void as some people said in the prior posts. My F1 is valid and is renewable as long as our AOS remains pending. He susggested to use F1 EAD as it has advantages of not having medicare and social security taxes. Once the green card is approved and when u renter the United states,be sure to use GC and not your F1 status.In that case ur GC becomes void. But when u are entering the USA while your GC is pending, u can use either your F1 status or GC EAD to enter.If u use enter using GC EAD,u have to continue on your GC EAD. In your situation if u start using GC EAD for a CPT internship,it might void your F1 status.Please contact your school official regarding this. U cannot use both at the same time.I am very sure about this. Take advice from your DSO and a lawyer before u proceed.

    I really doubt the people who post they received EAD/AP before FP. As far as my knowledge goes,its impossible.The whole point they do the FP is that they want to make sure they are not giving EAD to someone with criminal records. There is no way giving the EAD first and doing FP later, which totally defies the purpose. I know all this because,i was told by a rep at NSC when i applied for my student EAD last year. They need your picture and code2 biometrics for I 765 which is mandatory.They will use the picture for your EAD card taken during the FP. code 3 biometrics (all 10 fingers is required for FBI check)

    I think they are issuing the FP notices based on the priority dates. I have friends who received FP with earlier priority dates and some of them with late priority dates are still waiting for FP notices. This is my conclusion based on the facts.

    I checked with my employer about the checks being cashed by the phoenix center. As of today,the checks were not cashed. People who sent to TSC have started receiving updates about their applications(cashing of checks,receipts). those who sent to phoenix ,are sitting with their fingers crossed with no updates as of now. This really is not comfortable.Wish I was in the TSC servicing area. thanks

    Your case will be processed depending on where your I140 is approved. Your I 140 should have been processed by NSC.thats why ur case has been transferred to NSC

    G1145 is not mandatory.its just optional. Considering the massive work load ,I really doubt whether USCIS would take extra pain to send the email or text.The text or email just confirms the documents have been received and physically opened by someone for further processing. i haven't heard of any one getting it till date.I was just inquiring out of curiosity. You can get updates on USCIS website only if you have a receipt number.Without the receipt number ,you can do nothing on the USCIS website. Here is the flow chart. Documents sent to Dallas or phoenix centers. checks cashed. receipts will be issued. based on where your I 140 is approved,your documents will be transferred to TSC or NSC. Your I 485 will be processed in that center along with I765. I am not sure where they process the AP. Phoenix is just a collecting center.it does not process anything. Dallas on the other hand collects and processes the documents. i feel that applications going to Phoenix center are at a little disadvantage ,as they are transferred to some other center for further processing which might eat away valuable time.This is my conclusion but I dont know to what extent its correct.

    Dear GCmonk, The application package either goes to texas service center or phoenix center. Please correct me if I am wrong.As far as the uscis website says,they ought to go to any one of these centers. Where in the world did Vermont service center come from? Please check with your lawyer. please check this link http://www.uscis.gov/portal/site/uscis/menuitem.5af9bb95919f35e66f614176543f6d1a/?vgnextoid=eb7b5cdc2c463110VgnVCM1000004718190aRCRD&vgnextchannel=fe529c7755cb9010VgnVCM10000045f3d6a1RCRD thanks suri
