  1. 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
  2. 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
  4. 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 .
  7. 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
  8. So filing for I485 will not save the application even if PD is met before he turns 21 and filing is done?
  9. 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.
  10. Hi. I am an F1 student with Canadian Passport. I have graduated from an American university with a Bachelor degree. I am waiting for my EAD which will enable me to do my 1 year OPT. During the time I am waiting for the EAD, can I do a Certificate course from another university, in a subject not related to my major, but which may help me in job search later? This is a 3 month course. Thanks
  11. Hello. Ian in the same situation as nkumar83. But, my spouse has registered in college as of Fall 2016 as an H4 student. During my H1 transfer process, which may take a couple of months, will she still be in valid H4 status, or will she have to convert to F1 for that time.
  12. Hello Rahul12345. What status did you convert to when you were out of a job for 1 year? I will be in the same situation in a month. My H1B is valid till 2018, but I have been advised to either exit the country or to apply for Status Change like H1 to B2, or to a F2 ( if spouse converts to a F1 status). How quickly can I get the change of status approval?
  13. Hello. I have a H1 b valid until Oct 2018, 2nd renewal. I am on EB2 and have approved I140 with PD of Oct 2011. I have been with Company A since 2009. I am planning to change jobs now. Am I legally obligated to inform the Company B about my Visa Status at the initial interview stage? Can I be considered as ' legally allowed to work in US' since my H1B is valid until 2018? If I do get a new job,can I request the Company A to retain my I140 Will Company A have any legal liability in this case?Can Company B just transfer the H1b , or should they also file a new I140 for me?
  14. Hi. I am an Indian born Canadian citizen, in the US for past 5 years on a H1 visa. I have applied for my Green Card and my I-140 is approved.My daughter, who is studying in a US university is aging out of the application in August (turning 21), and needs to convert to F1 status. Is it a better option for her to apply from within the US or go into Canada and reenter US? Will the fact that her parent has applied for Green Card affect her F1 approval?
  15. Thanks for your reply. I did google and find this information on The US Embassy in Ottawa, Canada and the U.S. Department of State - Bureau of Consular Affairs, both of which say that Canadian Citizens do not need visas to study in the U.S. Agree that she will need the I-20 and be registered with SEVIS but since she will not be in H4 status anymore (ageing out), she will need some status and does I-20 give her that or will she get the F-1 ‘status’ which will be ‘stamped’ by the Officer at the port of entry. So does all this mean that she need not ‘apply’ for the F-1 visa at a U.S. Consulates or Embassy in Canada. Is that correct?
