    DS-160 and I130A

    You should ask direct questions with pertinent information rather than generic ones.
  2. AP is for reentry only; and GC supersedes AP.

    Initiate GC with new employer

    Assuming you are EB-2 India: Normally you should always encourage employer to start GC process as soon as possible. Nobody knows when/if your #1 bill becoming a law. However, considering starch difference of opinions in congress and political situation, passing anything new related to immigration is distant possibility. You have valid reason to suspect if anything goes wrong about possibility of not approving H1b extension. Coming back to my original claim, it is remotely possible to pass such bill as there are many in boat that will get affected thereby affecting few companies, which are dependent on such employees. Since your PD is Feb 2012, most likely none of chart is going to catch that is next 2-3 years. This means you have time to wait if your employer do not want to start procedure right away. But then, you still should pursue them to do so....Good luck!
  4. There is nothing as "Sponsoring" in visitor's visa. It's their own application.

    I-485 file for sister

    There is a huge wait time (10+ years) for sibling category. You can check details on USCIS visa bulletin they publish each month.
  7. It is required when you file I-485, which is third and final step. A lot of Indian birth certificates do not have child's and sometimes one of parents names too. Although it is not completely unacceptable, you will have to supplement such incomplete document with many other documents (Affidavit, DNA...etc.). I had that issue too in the past. What did I do? I applied for a complete document from government of India via local district/city council. A complete document will have all three names and other birth details along with citizenship, a stamp from government and a registration number to track it. In some places, it is not a straight forward document, but they know what exactly you want and may have to push them to expedite it. I think I paid about Rs.60 for each copy of it.

    Visitor Visa for 80 years age

    They decide it based on 6-7 questions about simplicity of application. Age is not a factor there.

    OCI - Travel document to India

    This forum is created for immigration questions about USA, not any other country.

    I130 check list

    It's not the good question to ask & taken advice on forum. Hire a good attorney.

    Visitor visa for parents

    There is no relation. He has to apply on own and decision will be taken based on his application. You don't come into picture at all.

    H1 Transfer before old H1 is revoked

    This can be considered as fraud. You should not arrive in US with intention shown is document as working on one employer and having being fired already. You may have documentation for that but it will create lot of issues in future. What is the reason that your new employer don't want to file H1b before you come to US? The second part of your paragraph doesn't make any sense as grace period is given to gather you things before leaving US or to find another job in that short time. It's not designed to return with another job.

    PHYSICIANS

    A close relative of mine is working as medical doctor after completing residency on J-1 visa. He had two year home country rule. He waived that by working in under-served area on h1b and just he just completed two years. The I-130 is filed (GC Spouse ) and priority date is current. His attorney says that he needs to complete three years (another one year) to apply for I-485. He is wondering if this is true as PD is current. When can be I-485 be filed in this case?
  14. You both are separate for interview purpose. They may consider interviewing together, however both decisions are independent of each other and requires separate applications.

    Cruise- Bahamas by using Advance parole

    If you have AP, that's your permit to reenter.

    Traveling with Tourist VISA

    1. If he has during the whole time. 2. Not sure if they will do it as it defies the primary purpose. Check with them.
  17. How about DNA results? That is ultimate proof.

    Travel to India - waiting for green card

    1. Technically it is ok when you have stamped H-4 and want to continue using it or have AP and want to be on that status. Please understand that once you are on AP, you can not move back to visa. 2. Always need to do that for any ongoing application.
  21. If I was in your situation, I would not have made any changes as far a possible. But then, I try to be extra cautious regarding anything in immigration that keeps me away from conventional or straight forward application. You don't have to take this approach or follow my example 🙂
  22. More likely your job profile changes after taking "Principal consultant" job. The work may be similar but there is vast difference in terms of titles. Look for SOC code and compare. They don't need to be exact, but need to be close. Regardless, you need to file documentation to update this in your original application. Remember that comparison of SOC codes is not required at this stage but it is good guide. This becomes must in later stage - See below. Compare SOC codes. It is not intuitive but it is more or less requirement that you keep doing same/similar job from the time you start labor till you file I-485. Even after filing I-485 along with I-485J (This is fairly new procedure that replaced employer letter to this two-page form to be signed by employer), if you make changes in title/role/functions/job in a significant way, you need to file updated I-485J. As you probably in "At least decade group" of EB-2 Indians, this policy discourages candidates like you from changing jobs and/or getting promotion 😞

    Traveling to India on CPT

    University of Cumberland has particularly reputation for fraud and illegal activities. It is one of those red flagged University that will get you in trouble during and after finishing degree. Take a wise decision.

    TRAVEL TO US VIRGIN ISLANDS ON H1B WITHOUT STAMPING

    The only difference is that you will be subjected to customs during reentry to mainland.
