    F2B sponsoring for OPT Student

    Thanks. We intend to consult a lawyer. CSPA may not help because after our I140 approval, she got only 6 months extra time. She is now 25. Also unfortunately, even though her name was on the I140 as a dependent, the F2B will use a new Priority Date since I130 is a new application.
  2. We got our Green Card this month.We now want to sponsor our daughter in the F2B category, since she aged out during the long wait as our Priority Date became current. She is now working on an OPT EAD and has applied for the STEM extension. Is it safe for us to apply for her Green Card when her STEM OPT is under process? Or should we wait till she gets the card? Thanks?
  3. I am a F1 student who has applied for I-485 as part of my father's Employment based category. 2 years ago I got a citation for a Class C misdemeanor for possession of drug (Marijuana) paraphernalia in my University campus area. My plea at the local municipal court was 'no contest' and I payed the fine and completed the required course and submitted my statement of compliance and request for dismissal of the charge/citation. I was represented by a lawyer, who confirmed that all the papers had been submitted to the municipal court and that the case was dismissed. Now, with my immigration interview coming up, I checked with the local court to get a copy of my court disposition papers. To my horror I saw that the disposition shows that it has "failed" (i.e. court order has not been complied with). I then checked with my lawyer and only then realized that they had not sent in my course completion papers to the court and that the case has not been closed or dismissed. I was also advised to say 'NO' to the questions about the citation etc in the I-485, which I did. I am now trying to rectify the situation by requesting the Court to amend the records as I had met the court orders. Now even if the case is dismissed or not, what should I say at the interview? Which databases does USCIS check ? Would a class C misdemeanor show up in my background check? One database that I checked myself does not show anything against my name, but could it show up in the USCIS search?
  4. My I 140 was approved in June 2019, on EB1 category, but I could port my PD of Oct 2011 (Applied as EB2). I applied for the AOS in July 2019 and am still awaiting my EAD / AP. My H1 B expires on Sept9th. My lawyer says that I am not eligible for renewal because I have finished more than 6 years on H1. Can H1 not be renewed when AOS is under way? Thanks
  5. My case is as above.My I 140 was approved in June 2019, on EB1 category, but I could port my PD of Oct 2011 (Applied as EB2). I have applied for the AOS in July 2019 and am still awaiting my EAD / AP. My H1 B expires on Sept9th. My Lawyer said I could apply to renew the H1 1 week before it expires, in case EAD does not come. Now lawyer says that I am not eligible for renewal because I have finished more than 6 years on H1. Can H1 not be renewed when AOS is under way? Thanks
  6. Hello. We have applied for AOS in July 2019, and have applied for the I131 and EAD for myself, wife and son, but have not yet received it. I have applied for an H1 extension since H1 expires in 2 weeks. Does my wife need to apply for H4 extension, or can she stay in the US since we have the 485 reciept? My son is on F1 status. Thanks
  7. I have just got the I485, 131 and EAD receipt numbers. I don't know why NVC has sent my case to Montreal when my AOS is also being processed. P
  8. I have applied for I485, EAD and I131 last month when my EB1 petition was approved. Also sent in the medicals. I have PD as 2011 Oct. At present I am working in USA on H1B. I had requested my application to be expediated as my son is aging out soon. I have got an email saying that my case has been sent to Montreal Consulate and we will be called for interview soon. Email says we have to fill Form D260. Will I need to fill out D260 , and does that mean that my I485 and I 131 are redundant? I am a Indian Born with a Canadian Citizenship, working at present in USA on H1 B status. Thanks.

    Sponsoring Aged Out Daughter

    Hello. I had applied for GC in the EB2 category with PD 2011 Oct. I have now got approved in the EB1 and my PD has been ported. In the meantime, my daughter, who was in my original application has aged out. Green Once I get my Green Card, I will sponsor her in the F2B category. But will she be able to retain the original PD of 2011 Oct since she was originally in my application? Thanks
  10. Hello. I am on a H1 B work Visa and am applying for the 4th extension. I have a valid current I 140 and my I 485 will be filed soon. Can I apply for the H1 B extension on my own, with the permission of my employer, without asking the company lawyer? I will be applying for EAD and AP, but I feel a H1 is safer. Thanks

    EAD and H1B extension

    Thanks. Since I have the EAD and I 131, if I leave the country for emergency travel, will I be considered 'in status' when I return? I will no longer have the valid H1 B/H4 .
  13. Hello, I have applied for my I485 and I have got my EAD and AP. My current H1 B will expire in a month. Will I need to renew my H1B and my spouse's H4? Or can I continue the same job using my EAD? Thanks
  14. So filing for I485 will not save the application even if PD is met before he turns 21 and filing is done?
  15. Good Day. My son will turn 21 in 10 months, and will have a 3 month protection due to the I 140 filing time. If I can file my I 485 before he ages out, will his age be frozen till the green card is issued at a much later date? He is a university student in the US and will have to file for F1 soon. Will this deter him from the application when my PD becomes current if he is still within the "Child protection Age"? My PD is in the EB3 category. Thank You.
