    RFE for H-4 EAD extension

    Hello, X has H-1 till April 2021, and Y(dependent of X) has H-4 till March 2020. Y has applied for H-4 EAD extension before applying for H-4 renewal(assuming H-1 is until April 2021). Now Y received RFE requesting more evidence. I assume H-4 needs to be renewed before we apply for H-4 EAD extension (or) can both H-4 and H-4 EAD be applied at same time. Please confirm. RFE is shown in attached image. Please advise. Thanks in advance!
  2. Hello, My employer has filed for H1B this year and got an RFE to provide client letter (Employer-Employee relationship). I'm currently working in EVC (Employer - Vendor - Client) model. Here the client is State Government firm. The client says they cannot provide letter on their letter head as it's against their policies. The employer says providing client letter would be strong case. I'm sure this is the case with all federal government agencies and though H1B still got approved working for them without having client letter. Please suggest what are the other alternatives for getting this H1B approved. I'm very worried. Please advise. Thanks in advance!
  3. Hi, I'm currently on OPT and working for employer A as a full-time employee. They filed for H1. Here is the RFE query. why a civil engineering degree would be a normal degree for the job position of construction cost estimator ? Please advise.
  4. Hello, My employer did H1B amendment(due to change in client location and job position) and applied for extension. I got an RFE on 'Completion of a Bachelor's or Higher Degree in a Specific Specialty'. Please advise on: How to respond for this kind of query? What documents needs to be submitted? Any cover letters needed? Do we need to get to evaluate GPA here in US with WES? Thanks in advance!
  5. Hi, I'm working for Employer A and currently on initial OPT set to expire on 02/04. Now applying for OPT STEM Extension. Now I changed to Employer B. Tentative start date with client would be 02/05. Is this ok? Or the new employment date has to be before 02/04? Also they're willing to change the start date accordingly. In I-983 form, for Start date of Employment field - what should be the date? 02/05 or preferably before 02/04? Thanks in Advance.
  6. I'm currently on OPT. Unfortunately I have to change my employer from A to B during H1B appeal. Note that A is not withdrawing the case. What are the circumstances/implications?
  7. Hi, I'm currently on OPT and was working for Employer A till Nov' 2018. Employer A applied for H1-B and got an RFE and its denied later on. But they appealed the case which is currently still under processing. Being said this, I've moved out of Employer A. But employer A informed that wouldn't be withdrawing the case and I can transfer it to other Employer. My start date with employer B is 2nd week of January. Here are my questions. Please suggest. Firstly, Is it ok to change to Employer B while the appeal is under processing? Or the appeal should be withdrawn by employer A inorder to join with Employer B? I'll be joining with Employer B on my OPT status. Would it be ok to do H1 transfer to Employer B later after the current is appeal is approved? At this point, if the H1 is approved, what would be the tentative H1 start date - From day of appeal approval date or Oct, 2018? And say if the H1 start date is Oct, 2018 - Would it be considered as an unemployment till date? If so, will it effect my status? Thanks,

    H1B visa transfer

    Hello, I have a valid H1B visa stamp with company A thru June 2017. Now I moved to company B and have a valid approved H1B document, but not visa stamp. The new H1B has a valid date till July 2018. In this scenario if I travel to India/Abroad in next 2-3 months, do I need to attend Visa interview for re-entry to US? or can I still enter to US with the current valid VISA stamp which has company name A on VISA. Please advise. Thank You for your replies!

  17. Hello, I have an approved I140 with an old employer. Now my new employer offering me Full time. They say that they will use different Job title rather than using the old job title by old employer. Does this will be an issue during H1 transfer/GC process? Thank You

  19. Hello, I have I-140 approved with my current employer. But now I'm trying to change the employer and start GC process later in the year. My worry is about the retaining the priority date. My current employer says If I change the employer, he will withdraw/cancel the approved I-140. Say If the current employer cancels the I-140, and If the new employer starts the GC in an year, can I retain the original Priority date? Please tell me the necessary steps to be taken to retain the original priority date. Thank You,

    Change of Employer after I-140

    Hello, I'm with my employer(Consultancy) ABC for more than 3 years. They filed H-1B, Green Card(from my pocket) for me. I'm currently on H-1b extension (2nd year on H1). Also for Green Card, my employer applied for I-140 somewhere around Jan/Feb 2015, and waiting for approval. It was filed as regular processing, not premium. Expecting I-140 approval in I'm working with client XYZ as a consultant from past 3 years. The contract keep getting extending. Now my client is forcing me to convert as an Full-time employee. I'm keep on saying to client that please give me time until I-140 gets approved. What would be your adivse? Some of my queries: 1. Firstly, Which type of employment is better - Consultant/Full-time? 2. Should I wait until I-140 gets approved to change employer? 3. If so, does the GC Priority dates get carry forward? 4. Also if my new employer start the Green Card process again after 1 year, does the priority dates remain same? or is it like a brand new application? Please advise me if any suggestions! Thank You for your time.

  24. Hello guys, My interview was today(10/09) in Jamaica. VISA Approved....Yayyy...Party time!!!!! My Interview Questions (Only 2): 1. Whom do you work for? 2. What's the course work in Masters? Heard Golden words 'VISA APPROVED' Only 2 questions. No documents asked. Interview was less than 50 seconds. NOTE: VO said Passport will be delivered through Mail to HOTEL(Though u select Pickup, I selected pickup ) in a week. Heard the policy changed(Only delivery, no pickup) here from today. Not quite sure about this new policy. Plan to stay here for a week! GOOD LUCK guys!!
  25. Yes thats true for last 2 days. Everyone should either pickup from DHL or Delivery to Hotel. There's no chance on entering embassy for passport pickup.
